Mermaid Sushi *Raw Vegan*

Wow, that 2-week holiday was the longest school vacation ever. Like, EVER. I was all like, “What day is it? Who am I? Where are we? Why are you still here?!”

Well, we’re here now. We’ve made it to the other sides moms — mums? — and now, we miss them. Admit it. We do. I probably said that to Caleb like 25 times today. *Sigh*

However, if you follow me on Instagram (I mean, of course you do… right?) at pb_n_julie, you noticed I was still able to post some homemade deliciousness that only looks — ok, and tastes — fancy and magical. Mermaid sushi. Yum! Inspired by these gorgeous Australian beaches and crashing-one-day, smooth-as-a-lake-the-next, ocean, this gorgeous plant-based roll was actually pretty simple to make. And, even easier to eat ;)

Many times I placed them in my shopping cart only to make it to the checkout and well, chicken out.

Feeling completely out of my element, there was still something that kept piquing my interest and bringing me back to this ubiquitous pack of sea veggie noodles. What really sealed the deal was when one of my favorite nutritionistas ever blogged about them and shared her quick and easy recipe. That was all it took to finally take the plunge and buy my first bag of kelp noodles.
