Monday: Sesame Salmon Salad Rolls

Yield: 2 rolls
Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


For the quinoa
½ cup Thrive Market Organic Sprouted Quinoa
1 cup water
1 tablespoon miso paste

For the filling
1 can Thrive Market Non-GMO Wild Pink Salmon
1 teaspoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
½ teaspoon wasabi
½ cup beets, spiralized or shredded
½ cup baby arugula
½ yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced

For the wraps
2 nori sheets


Make the quinoa
Follow package instructions, adding the miso to the pot when cooking. Cool quinoa completely before wrapping.

Make the filling
In a small bowl, add salmon, mayonnaise, toasted sesame oil, and wasabi. Mix with a fork, then set aside with the other veggies.

Make the wraps
On a work surface, lay down 1 nori sheet. Lightly wet hands and sprinkle half of the quinoa on the bottom half of the nori (the side closest to you). Place half of the salmon mixture, beets, arugula, and yellow bell pepper over the quinoa; roll from the bottom up. Repeat with remaining wrap. Eat immediately, or refrigerate for up to 2 days.

Tuesday: Vegetable Spring Roll

Yield: 1 roll
Active Time: 5 minutes

1 piece rice paper
½ cup shredded cabbage
½ cup spiralized or shredded carrots
1 Persian cucumber, cut lengthwise into ½-inch spears
½ avocado, pitted and sliced
Cilantro leaves

Fill a large skillet halfway with water and heat until warm. Remove from heat and place rice paper into water for about 20 seconds, or until soft. Lay wrapper on a paper towel to absorb excess moisture, then transfer to a cutting board. On the bottom half of the rice paper (the side closest to you), spread the cabbage and carrots in one layer. Top with cucumber, avocado, and cilantro leaves. Carefully fold the bottom of the rice paper wrapper over the vegetables. Fold in the sides and continue rolling up from the bottom, keeping the rice paper tight. Serve immediately, with almond butter sauce on the side.
