Recipe: Arugula, Scallion & Chicken Handrolls

I love making hand rolls at home with nori, brown rice, and whatever the heck else happens to be in my fridge – this time it just happened to be some leftover chicken, scallions, and arugula (what a fun alternative to a chicken salad sandwich).  I’ve packed these hand rolls for picnics, and making them is a great way to get your kids involved in the kitchen.  Sea vegetables like nori (seaweed) are full of health benefits and I strive to eat them whenever possible.  It certainly doesn’t hurt that I find them delicious!

Some other ingredients that I love to use in these rolls:  leftover fish, cucumber, avocado, pepper, apple, carrots, radish, scrambled eggs, seared tofu, mushrooms, sweet potatoes, squahs, and more.

4 sheets of  sushi nori
1 cup cooked brown rice
Sesame seeds or furikake
20 leaves baby arugula
4 ounces of cooked chicken breast, cut into thin strips
1 small green onion, slices lengthwise then cut in half
wheat free tamari (for dipping)

Directions Add a heaping 1/4 cup of brown rice to a sheet of nori, and press it flat into a diagonal (from bottom right to top left).  The position should favor the top left corner.  Sprinkle the rice with furikake or sesame seeds.
