Raw Zucchini Rolls

I made a similar version of these rolls for a wedding a while back, and I made them again last week when making a 3 course dinner for the guests at Byron Bay Detox Retreat. So it’s about time they made it onto the blog. The filling ingredients are a guide only – You can add pretty much anything you like!

2 small zucchinis

3 tbsp cashew butter

1 avocado

the juice of 1 lime

1 lemon, cut in half

a small handful of each of the following:

julienned capsicum

julienned cucumber

sunflower sprouts

some Vietnamese mint leaves (you can substitute with spring onion if you prefer)

Let’s do this!

Mash the avocado with the lime juice and set aside on a chopping board with the cashew butter and other filling ingredients.

Raw Zucchini Rolls

Grab a peeler and peel your zucchinis into lengthways strips.

Lay your strips down on a chopping board. Moving from left to right, add a dollop of cashew butter, the same amount of avocado mix, and then a very small amount of cashew butter at the far end on the right.

Next, add your filling ingredients – a small amount of each, until you have filled up the first 4-5cm of the strip. Add a quick squeeze of lemon.

Roll it up, using the small amount of cashew butter at the other end to stick the zucchini strip down.

Now repeat until you have used up all the zucchini strips.

Raw Zucchini Rolls

Makes about 12 rolls

Note – if you’re making this for the first time, be aware that it takes a few attempts with the peeler to get the thickness right, so perhaps buy an extra zucchini!

    Looks delicious! And not to mention it’s healthy, too. But I agree with Christey – minus the avocado! 😀 (Sorry not a fan of those, but the other ingredients are yumm yumm!) I wonder if I can try this without the avocado? 😉

      You could totally do it without the avocado. Just use a little more cashew butter and an extra squeeze of lemon 🙂
