That's How We Roll: Body SymmetryMD 's Paleo SpicyTuna Rolls

Who does't love sushi?! This traditional Japanese delight is something that people on the Paleo diet haven't been able to enjoy... until now! 

Our Body SymmetryMD Wellness Squad has the perfect recipe for those of us not able to indulge in our favorite sushi roll because of the rice that typically accompanies it. We've substituted cauliflower "rice" to make a delicious, Paleo-friendly recipe for Spicy Tuna Rolls:

Paleo Spicy Tuna Rolls 

Ingredients for the "rice"
- 1 large head cauliflower 144
- Non-stick spray (olive oil flavor)
- salt, to taste

Ingredients for the sushi
- 4 ounces sashimi grade tuna 122
- 2 tablespoons Greek Yogurt 
- 2 teaspoons sriracha
- Salt, to taste
- 1 small cucumber 47
- 1/2 avocado 161
- 2 sheets nori
- Pickled ginger
- Wasabi
- Liquid Aminos (you can find this at many grocery stores near the soy sauce)

Directions for the "rice"
1. Preheat oven to 425°
2. Chop cauliflower into pieces small enough to fit into your food processor. Pulse for 2 seconds at a time until the cauliflower resembles rice.
3. Spread onto a aluminum foil lined baking sheet and spray with cooking spray.
4. Toast in oven for 30 minutes, stirring about twice for even cooking.
Directions for the sushi
1. Mince the tuna and mix with yogurt, sriracha and salt, to taste.
2. Thinly slice cucumber into long strips.
3. Slice avocado into slices.
4. Place a piece of nori onto your mat or towel and cover with the "rice" leaving a 1 inch gap at the end farthest from you.
5. Layer your toppings onto the end closest to you.
6. Using the mat or towel start to roll the sushi away from you.
7. Once rolled slice into 6 or 8 pieces and serve with liquid aminos, pickled ginger, and wasabi.
