It's day 3 of this Sexie Game On Diet experiment. I've been eating 5 meals a day. Which is 2 more than I'm used to eating. To keep me from vomiting by the time I hit meal 3 or as I like to call it "Lunch 2," I need to keep the meals relatively small but satisfying. So here is my latest creation that I currently have a crush on:
Packin' Heat Chickpea Rolls
1 sheet nori
1/2 carrot cut into strips
1/2 celery stalk cut into strips
1/2 cucumber cut into strips
2 tbsp chickpeas
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp lemon juice
pinch of garlic powder
pinch of dill
pinch (or more) of cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
Note: I've portioned everything out for 1 serving of 8 rolls because the avocado tends to turn brown if you don't eat it all the first day. Which doesn't look quite as Sexie. And I only put Sexie things in my mouth.
In a small bowl or in a Nutribullet or some other blendy kitchen toy add your chickpeas, avocado, mustard, lemon juice, garlic powder, dill, and cayenne. Either mash it all up by hand (hand job) or turn that blender on till you get a creamy consistency. (You may need to throw a splash of water in there if you are blending it) Add salt and pepper and maybe a little more cayenne to taste.
Get a clean, dry cutting board and lay that sheet of nori on it. Then let your chickpea cream spread all over that nori...well over 1/4-1/2 of the nori. Then lay your veggie sticks down on top of them. Now roll the nori over all that Sexie goodness till you get to the end of the nori sheet. *Get your fingers wet and rub along the end of the sheet. Use more water as you press the end down on the roll to seal it. Now flip your roll over on it's backside with the seam underneath. Using a clean, non-serrated knife cut about 8 creamy, crunchy rolls and position them on a plate. These are so full of flavor you don't need to mess with any sauce. Just put them in your mouth.
*For a visual aid on how to roll your veggies watch Sexie Veggies Episode 4 "Rockin Rolls" Start at 4:35 to cut right to the rollin. Enjoy!
