For the Sunflower Seed Pâté:

  • 1 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 large handful fresh dill
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1/4 red onion, chopped
  • 4 sprigs green onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon coconut nectar, or any liquid sweetener
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon dulse flakes (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Dash of Himalayan salt
  • Dash of pepper

For the Spicy Mustard Dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon of your favorite mustard
  • 1 tablespoon coconut nectar, or any liquid sweetener
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2  teaspoon paprika
  • Dash of cayenne
  • Dash of Himalayan salt

For the Nori Rolls:

  • 1/4 large cucumber, julienned
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 1 handful purple cabbage, chopped
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 4 leaves of lettuce


For the Sunflower Seed Pâté:

  1. Place all ingredients except green onion and parsley into a food processor and process until combined and texture is like a pâté. You don’t want to leave the mixture too chunky because you are going to spread it onto nori sheets.
  2. Place pate into a bowl, add green onion and parsley and stir carefully until combined.

For the Dressing:

  1. Place all ingredients into a small bowl and whisk until combined.

Nori Rolls:

  1. Place nori sheet onto a bamboo mat, spread sunflower seed pate, and add all the veggies. You can add a lot to make a big wrap (like my picture above), or add less to make sushi rolls.
  2. Using the bamboo mat, carefully roll the nori roll and cut into however many servings you wish.
