8 Days of Recipes. Day 8: Festive Winter Vegetable Rolls

Finger foods are a must at Holiday parties, and what better finger food to serve than sushi?  It is light and healthy compared to many of the rich holiday offerings and yet it is beautiful and delicious!  The best thing about it is the filling ingredients can be switched up when the seasons change.  Also, it is usually gluten and dairy free. This recipe I am sharing with you is also vegan so it is safe to serve when you have guests with allergies or are trying to eat lighter.

For the avocado spread, combine the avocado, garlic, lime and jalapeno in a food processor and process until smooth. Set aside. To assemble the sushi, lay out a sheet of nori, and spread about 2-3 Tbsp along the top of the sheet in a line. Lay a few slices of bell pepper over it, then beet, then scallions and top the line of veggies with some sprouts. Roll up, from the top down, then moisten the bottom edge of the nori with water so it sticks. Repeat with the other nori sheets. Slice them into 2 inch rounds and serve!
