When you have dietary restrictions you’ve always got to plan meals and snacks ahead of time for work, travelling or parties. Otherwise, you’ll starve. Ok, you probably won’t starve, but it’s difficult to find convenience foods that are healthy, dairy-free and gluten-friendly.
On occasion, I misjudge how much food I’ll need during the day and end up craving something satisfying by 3:00pm. Sushi is always my go-to snack – it’s filling, but not too heavy, inexpensive and convenient. However, I am concerned about eating so much white rice, since it doesn’t have much nutritional value.
That’s why this recipe is genius. Genius! It’s got the tasty comfort of traditional sushi with added benefits from the quinoa like protein, magnesium, riboflavin and fibre, to name a few.
These are not difficult to prepare and you can fill them with anything. My favourite sushi has avocado and yams – how about you?
