Nori rolls are so versatile. You can roll whatever suits your fancy up in nori sheets to enjoy.
I have made them a couple of times, but this is my husbands area of expertise. As a carnivore, he ate sushi quite often, so I think that drives him in trying different veggie and vegan combos for us to enjoy now that he's vegetarian. Here's some of the latest ones he put together. Oh man, they were so, so good!
You can sub brown rice for these. I actually prefer it.
Also, experiment with the different varieties of rice paper available. Some don't have much flavor, but when combined with other ingredients, they taste really good!
Nori, and all other seaweed, is a rich source of calcium, zinc and iodine. It is also a good source of Lignans which help fight cancer.
