Millet sushi rolls xx

 Yay I love these little lunch sensations! not only do they taste fantastic but they are easy and packed with nutrients!

I like to think off them as my mineral powerhouse!
  • 1 cup millet
  • approx 2 cups of water 
  • sesame seeds
  • approx 1/3 cup Tahini,
  •  tamari,
  •  lemon juice,
  •  horseradich 
  •  fresh ginger

Heat alittle olive oil in pot
Add millet toast lightly
Add water and bring to boil 
Reduce heat cover and simmer till it is cooked and sticky ( almost over cooked)
let cool.

Toast some sesame seeds and mix into the millet. some times at this stage I add other nuts and seeds too. Up to you be creative.

In separate bowl, Mix together Tahini, tamari, lemon juice, horseradish and fresh ginger and enough water to go consistency of hummus.  I haven't given quantities as I just add to taste starting with the tahini

Mix enough of the tahini mixture into the cold millet and sesame seeds to bind. 

Then use in place of rice in your nori roll, as you would sushi rice.

Add fillings of your choice and roll. 

I  fiiled these with watercress, cucumber, spring onions, marinated tofu, and avocado. But you an put in what ever you like :) Heaven xx
