Carrots and Seaweed combine really nicely

Carrot Seaweed Summer Rolls

These spring rolls are not only a treat for your palate but also a nutritional powerhouse. Seaweed is packed with essential vitamins and minerals, including iodine, calcium, and iron therefore it’s a wonderful source of antioxidants and offers potential health benefits. Especially if you are eating salt that does not have iodine added.

The food we eat has a major impact on our health, but the way we prepare it can also have an effect. Eating a diet high in processed foods, sugar, and unhealthy fats can lead to many health problems, such as obesity and heart disease. But what if I told you that changing these factors could make all the difference? Just by cooking your meals with whole food, plant-based ingredients, you can improve your health.

Let’s try the NOMA projects Kelp Oil

As an adventurous culinary enthusiast, I couldn’t resist diving into the intriguing world of Noma projects. Inspired by the renowned Noma restaurant, their mini projects offer a unique opportunity to bring a taste of their innovation into my own kitchen.

With their emphasis on quality ingredients, inventive techniques, and a commitment to pushing culinary boundaries, Noma projects provide a passage to explore new flavors and expand my capacity. From experimenting with their kelp oil to incorporating their creative approaches to ingredients and presentation, each venture into their mini projects is a new experience.

It’s a chance to channel the spirit of Noma’s renowned innovation and bring a touch of culinary magic to my own gastronomic adventures. I added kelp oil to this dish though it will taste great even if you don’t have it.

Carrot Seaweed Summer Rolls

Carrot Seaweed Summer Rolls


  • Author: Dr. Siri Chand
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 rolls 1x

Description

In the world of plant-based kitchen exploration, finding recipes that combine freshness and innovation is a true delight. These Carrot Seaweed Salad Spring Rolls are a perfect example of such a recipe. Blending vibrant carrots with the subtle taste of seaweed, these spring rolls offer a refreshing and nutritious twist to your meals.


Ingredients

Units Scale

Carrot Seaweed Salad:

  • 6 large carrots
  • 1/2 cup dried seaweed (such as kelp, wakame or nori)
  • 2 tablespoons yuzu juice (sub lime if you prefer)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 12 tsp soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon pickled radish, finely chopped (optional)
  • 12 small spring onions minced (optional)
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds (optional)

For the Spring Rolls:

  • Carrot Seaweed Salad (prepared as mentioned above)
  • 4 large rice paper wrappers
  • 1 cup pickled radish, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 1 cup lettuce, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cucumber, sliced thinly


Instructions

  1. Prepare the Carrot Seaweed Salad:
    • Use a Julianne slicer to cut the carrots into thin matchstick-like strips (see in the resources section below for a slicer that I use).
    • Soak the dried seaweed in water for about 5 minutes until it softens, then drain and rinse it under cold water. Chop the seaweed into small pieces.
    • In a bowl, combine the julienned carrots, chopped seaweed, yuzu juice, sesame, onions, sesame oil, freshly grated ginger, pickled radish, and kelp oil (if you happen to have access to it). Toss well to ensure the flavors are evenly distributed. Season with salt to taste.
  2. Assemble the Spring Rolls:
    • Fill a large bowl of baking pan with warm water. Dip one rice paper wrapper into the water and let it soften for about 10-15 seconds until pliable.
    • Place the softened rice paper wrapper on a clean surface. I use a cutting board.
    • Spread a small amount of the Carrot Seaweed Salad across the center of the rice paper wrapper, leaving some space at the edges.
    • Add a layer of pickled radish, lettuce, and cucumber on top of the salad.
    • Fold the sides of the rice paper wrapper towards the center, then roll it up tightly from the bottom to enclose the filling. Repeat this process with the remaining wrappers and filling.
  3. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Arrange the prepared spring rolls on a serving platter.
    • You can serve the spring rolls as they are or slice them in half diagonally for an elegant presentation.
    • You can serve them with a dipping sauce of your choice like a spicy peanut sauce.

Notes

Experiment with vegetables that you have to create new types of rolls.Β  I had kelp oil from Noma Projects that I added but you could also use any herb oil.Β

Just click on the “Instacart” shopping link above and it will let you pick the store with the ingredient list.

My husband and I got excited about Instacart during the pandemic and now use it from time to time.

We recently spent time moving my mom out of her condo. Afterward, it was such a treat to have the groceries delivered.

I have found with good instructions that I can get what I requested. So far, I have not had any bad experiences to date.

If you are a busy professional, look into Instacart as a way to eat healthier when your schedule is really busy.
