This recipe calls for the following products in the Elevated Pantry:
- 1 1/2 cups of Sunflower Seeds
- 2 dates, pitted & chopped
- 2 tablespoons of Dripped Out Sun-Dried Tomatoes
- 1/2 cup of Olive Oil
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
- 1 & 1/2 teaspoons of BLack to My Roots
- Cherry Tomatoes, sliced in half
- Avocado, cubed
- Fresh Spinach OR Broccoli, chopped
- Nori Sushi Seaweed Sheets
In a blender, add all ingredients except for the cherry tomatoes, fresh spinach, avocado, and nori sushi seaweed sheets.
Process these ingredients until the texture is like fine grains of rice. Scrape the sides of the blender with a flat spatula to assist.
On a nori sheet, apply your sunflower seed mixture on half of the sheet.
On that same half, apply your desired amount of toppings (cherry tomatoes, avocado, fresh spinach). Do not add too much, because you want it to be easy to roll!
Then, roll your sushi, starting from from the side that is packed with ingredients.
Then, add a bit of water on the tip of the opposite side of the nori wrap (about 1 inch), to lock it in when it's wrapped.
Then with a sharp knife, cut your sushi pieces.

**This recipe is unlike any sushi you've ever had. It's the perfect blend of sweet and savory. Serve with coconut aminos (no soy sauce!) as a dip to elevate this meal even more!
