veggie bites

I promised to share some recipes I created over the holidays so here is a unique appetizer that everyone at our solstice party loved. This delightful little morsel is simple to make, and should be eaten in one bite to experience the burst of all the flavors coming together. It is wheat free and can be dairy free, too. Substitute a non dairy cream cheese or sour cream for the cream cheese in the wasabi spread mixture.

2 cups cooked sushi rice – cook following instructions on pkg. When it is cooled add 2 Tbl. brown sugar, 1/2 Tb. rice vinegar, 1 Tbl. soy sauce or wheat free tamari, salt & pepper to taste.

Julienne (cut into very fine thin strips) 1 small carrot, 1/2 cucumber, 1 red radish

In a bowl mix together 1 Tbl. wasabi powder with a few drops of hot water to make a paste, then add 4 oz. cream cheese, 1 Tbl. wheat free tamari (or soy sauce).

Cut a sheet of Nori into small squares, about 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″                            On each sheet put a dollop (about 1 Tbl.) of rice. Top rice with about 1 tsp. of wasabi mix. Decorate with carrots, cucumbers,radish.  Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and sprigs of curly parsley.  Have fun with these and be creative with putting them together. Enjoy!
