Vegan Nori Rolls

Gotta roll with the punches, learn from your mistakes… Get up, dust yourself off and carry on… Expect less and be ready for unexpected

This was something we had to keep telling ourselves for the last two days. We have taken two weeks of work, a vacation without vacating, if you will. Mladen had ideas to work on his hobby, video projects and I wanted to get more serious and in-depth with our blog. But, alas, when you picture the perfect future, you are just asking for trouble.

So, the things went down in this order:

  1.  Our land line was flooded, so phone was out
  2. Since we still have DSL Internet, the Internet went with it
  3. Power supply in Mladen’s computer went dead and
  4. Last, but not the least, adding new power supply showed that old one fried the computer motherboard and the whole thing went in open flame (yes, real fire!)

That was his birthday present. Special, right? We knew you’ll get jealous, but we had to brag a little! 😀

Anyway, while we’re waiting for a new motherboard to arrive, we had to spoil ourselves with something we really, really like. Enter *drum roll* Vegan Nori Rolls with olive dip!


  • 3 carrots
  • Small red (purple) onion
  • 1/3 of a lettuce
  • Red clover sprouts (around 80 grams)
  • 1/2 of red bell pepper
  • 1/2 of yellow bell pepper
  • A few squeezes of lemon juice (or to taste)
  • Salt or salt water sole (to taste)
  • 3 nori sheets

Vegetables for filling the nori sheets

Grate carrot, finely chop onion, lettuce, red and yellow bell peppers and throw them in a bowl. Add red clover sprouts, salt and lemon and mix it all up.

Place the nori sheet on a tray or plate and evenly spread your veggies on top. In the middle, add some olive dip, fine slices of peppers and few whole olives and roll up. It’s that easy!

Admittedly, I tend to overload the sheet, so we eat them like burritos. It is kind of a struggle to keep looking decent while eating them, but we don’t mind.

If you put less veggies on the sheet and/or cut them up like sushi, you can keep your cool and still enjoy this rich taste.

Enjoy the rest of the week and remember, don’t plan ahead too much! 🙂

  1. Just thought I would let you know. I made these the other week – thought they were such a great idea. Used radish sprouts instead to give it a spicy kick. Made them half sizes, so had 14, and took them to a work lunch. Anyway, just before lunch started I had to go take a call from a client. When I came back 15 minutes later eagerly anticipating my lunch they were all gone! People loved them. 🙂

      1. It is a shared lunch situation, so the whole idea is for everyone to make food to share, but I was still hoping to eat my own. I always bring plenty so I know I will have at least something vegan to eat.

  3. Woah, sounds like you guys have had enough computer issues for a year! Can’t believe there was an open flame! Hope the new motherboard arrives soon. 🙂

    Vegan sushi is the best! That mixture is so colorful too. Looks like you had quite a delicious treat to make up for all the computer problems! ;P

    1. Yeah, it was pretty surreal! It seems that, for us, this is the year of problems with appliances and computers. But also super yummy, consoling food! 🙂 New motherboard arrived the day before yesterday and today, finally, things are getting back to normal! 🙂


      1. And this year still feels like it has only just begun! Yummy food to the rescue! Yay, glad to hear that things are going back to normal. No more motherboard fires!

      2. I remember when your blender was broken last year, and you were waiting quite a while for it to be repaired. Glad it’s back and stronger than ever! 😉

      3. Yeah, those times! 🙂 Now, we could never be so long without a blender! While waiting to be fixed, we actually bought our current one, Omniblend and my parents bought a new jar for the old one, it actually never got fixed :D… You can never have too much blenders in the house! 😀

      4. Ooh, very nice! Having two blenders must be pretty handy. 😀 When our blender broke, we switched to using the immersion blender, which was okay for some things, but not so great for others. We soon received a blender as a gift from other fellow vegetarians! 🙂


    1. Thank you! It is one of those meals that you eat all the while surprised how good it turned out! 🙂
      And yes, there was definitely some message hidden in all those happenings… Probably to be more spontaneous… or something like that, we’ll figure it out 😉
