Ingredients

For the rice:

For the sauce::

For the wraps:

  • 8 Gluten Free or Light Flatout Flatbreads
  • 8 tsp Toasted sesame seeds
  • 8 Sheets of Nori (seaweed)
  • 1 Cucumber, seeded, halved and thinly sliced *
  • 2 Avocados, thinly sliced
  • 8 Ounces Cooked small shrimp, peeled and deveined (weighed after removing the tail)

Instructions

  • Combine the water and sushi rice in a rice cooker and cook according to the settings on the rice cooker. Once cooked, transfer to a large plastic bowl using a wooden spoon and let cool to room temperature - do NOT place it into the refrigerator to cool.
  •  While the rice cooks, combine the vinegar and monkfruit in a small pot on medium heat and boil until the monkfruit is dissolved.  Pour into the cooled rice, along with the salt.
  • Use a wooden spoon and mix the rice together, using a cutting motion, until the liquid is absorbed by the rice. Set aside.
  • Drain the water from the cashews and place into a SMALL food processor (mine is 3 cups.)** Add in the soy sauce and sriracha. Use the "chop" setting for 2 minutes. Then, turn to "puree" for a good 5 or 6 minutes, until smooth and creamy. You'll need to stop and scrape down the sides every so often. Taste and add a pinch of salt if desired (I like it in there!)

To assemble:

  • Spread a lightly heaping 2 Tbsp of the cream onto a flatbread, covering it completely and sprinkle with 1 tsp of sesame seeds.  Slice a little bit off the end of a sheet of Nori, so that it fits onto the flatbread, and stick it to the cream.
  • With the long end facing toward you, spoon a 1/2 cup of the rice onto the edge and press it out, leaving 1 inch at each side. I find it's easiest to press the rice out with slightly damp fingers.
  • Lay 1/8 of the slices of cucumber onto the wrap, followed by 1/4 of sliced avocado. Finally, lay 1 oz of shrimp in a row.
  • Tightly fold in the sides of the wrap and then tightly roll it all together, making sure to really hold the fillings in. Repeat with remaining wraps.
  • DEVOUR. ***

Notes

*Make sure to slice out the seeds, as they make your wraps soggy.
**I tried this in a large food processor, and Blendtec, and it never got smooth, so go small.
***The flatbread does get softer as these wraps sit (they still taste amazing!) so it's best to only refrigerate for 2-3 days.
