While it’s great in sushi, these nori wraps are a great way to indulge in sushi flavors by using nori as a bread or rice replacement.

If you’ve had sushi before, you are likely familiar with nori.

Those earthy green seaweed sheets give sushi its patented ocean flavor, even if it’s fish-free. 

It’s colorful, rich in flavors (and nutrition), and can transform simple veggies into a mouthwatering meal. 

Check out these fantastic nori wrap recipes below.

They capture the essence of Japanese cuisine without all those pesky carbs. 

1. Nori Wrap with Canned Tuna 

These nori wraps have a little bit of everything, except carbs!

Plus, there’s no need to head down to the Asian market for sushi-grade fish.

All of the ingredients in this recipe are likely waiting for you in your pantry. 

It pairs canned tuna with eggs, creamy avocado, cucumbers, and sriracha mayo and rolls neatly in a nori sheet. 

It’s a great way to whip up a tasty, healthy, and incredibly filling protein-rich lunch or dinner. 

2. Keto Sushi Rolls without Rice 

For those on a keto diet, sushi is off the menu.

However, if you skip out on the rice, you can still indulge in flavorful sushi without undoing your diet. 

This recipe pairs classic sushi fillings such as smoked salmon, avocado, cucumber, and red bell peppers.

With a sheet of soaked nori, you can roll those tasty fillings into a sushi roll.

Then, dunk it in soy sauce or slather it in wasabi. 

3. Sunrise Nori Wraps with Spicy Tahini Drizzle 

Why are they called sunrise nori wraps? They look just like a sunrise!

These vegetarian sushi rolls let the veggies shine. They incorporate strips of carrots, avocado, summer squash, cucumber, and red cabbage.

It’s all arranged to look like the sunrise. 

Pair these wraps with a spicy tahini drizzle, and go to town! 

4. Easy Vegetable Nori Wraps 

It doesn’t get much easier than these vegetable nori wraps.

They’re light, surprisingly filling, and make the perfect option when you don’t have time for a post-lunch food coma. 

The recipe pairs the crunchiest of veggies such as sprouts, carrots, cucumbers, and leafy green spinach with meaty tofu. 

Before wrapping, drizzle some sesame dressing (or your favorite nutty dressing) for an elevated kick of flavors. 

5. Paleo Tuna Salad Nori Wraps 

These paleo tuna salad wraps are so healthy you don’t have to stop and just one!

For a flavorful lunch low on calories, these wraps pair lightly dressed tuna with crunchy veggies wrapped up in a nori sheet. 

They come together in just 10 minutes and offer a good deal of protein without the carbs. 

6. Paleo Sushi With Nori, Salmon & Avocado 

Going Paleo doesn’t mean you also have to give up sushi!

This Paleo sushi delivers that same satisfying feeling after a plate of colorful sushi, without the rice. 

For a protein kick, you can opt for cooked salmon or save on time with canned salmon. 

Pair it with all your favorite sushi veggies like cucumbers, avocado, red peppers, or scallions. The more colorful, the better!

7. Keto Chicken Avocado Cucumber Nori Rolls 

No law says you can’t use chicken in nori rolls! 

The shredded chicken in these rolls amps the protein content, preventing you from grabbing a mid-afternoon snack. 

It pairs fresh veggies wrapped up in a nori roll that’s easy to pack with you and take on the go. 

8. Nori-Wrapped Tofu in a Szechuan-Style Spicy Sauce 

Need a little spice in your life?

These nori-wrapped tofu pieces are deliciously savory and pack a powerful punch of heat. You’ve been warned!

Wrapping individual pieces of tofu is tedious.

But the umami flavors it brings to this Szechuan-style dish are well worth the extra effort. 

Coat the tofu pieces in a homemade spicy sauce, and eat alone or alongside steamed Asian veggies. 

9. Spicy Shiitake Mushroom Roll

Mushroom sushi rolls are the perfect option for vegans who miss traditional sushi’s chewy texture. 

Dried shiitake mushrooms carry a rich and earthy flavor with a very similar texture to raw fish. 

These spicy shiitake mushroom nori rolls are hard to resist. If you love mushrooms, they are a must-try!

10. Nori Spinach Rolls 

These simple nori spinach rolls are oh-so-healthy, gluten-free, and vegan! 

The best part? They only require two main ingredients: spinach and nori. 

To lift the rich earthy flavors of the spinach, toss it in a mixture of nutty sesame seeds, soy sauce, mirin, and sugar. 

They might be simple, but they don’t skimp shy away from bright flavors. 

11. Spicy Seaweed Tofu Rolls 

Spicy Vietnamese-inspired tofu rolls are the ultimate treat. 

The tofu pieces are first fried until golden brown (yes, please!).

Then, they’re wrapped in nori and fried again to let those flavors bind together in the pan. 

For a spicy kick, toss your golden tofu creations in a bright sauce made from lemongrass, chili, and garlic. 

12. Deep Fried Nori Wrapped Tofu 

Let’s face it, most of us love fried fish because we love the crunchy fried exterior and array of dipping sauces. 

Surprisingly, wrapping tofu in nori and deep frying it until golden brown tastes like fried fish!

The tofu lends that soft, tender texture on the inside, and the nori infuses very subtle fishy notes once fried in oil.

It may taste like fried fish, but it’s 100 percent vegan. 

13. Sushi Rolls (Maki Sushi – Hosomaki) 

Making sushi rolls at home is finicky, but keeping your fillings simple is the key to Instagram-ready rolls!

The trick to making sushi rolls look just as stunning at home is to stick to one ingredient per roll. 

This makes them easier to work with and allows you to create multiple colorful rolls with different flavors. 

Opt for ingredients such as cucumber, tuna, and my favorite filling, natto (fermented soybeans)

14. Easy Kimbap/Gimbap 

Kimbap is Korea’s take on Japanese sushi.

It pairs bright Koren flavors in rolled sushi-grade rice and nori for a sushi roll rich in umami flavors. 

What makes kimbap unique is the addition of BBQ Kimbap ham and sushi rice.

Korean sushi rice is slightly sweeter and tangier than Japanese sushi rice. 

15. Vegan Quinoa Sushi 

I love any excuse to whip out the black quinoa! It’s so bright and colorful and makes these sushi rolls explode off the plate. 

Plus, quinoa is much more nutritious than white rice. 

It pairs colorful black quinoa with bright veggies such as avocado, cucumber, beetroot, carrots, and daikon. 

16. Raw Nori Roll (Vegan) 

Vegan sushi is the perfect way to indulge in sushi without fish.

While they may be raw, no fish were harmed in the making of these nori rolls!

Whipping these nori rolls together is so simple.

It infuses crunchy veggies like cucumbers, sprouts, fresh dill, and creamy avocado in a tender nori roll. 

They’re so delicious and flavorful that no additional sauces are required. 

17. Vegan Sushi Wraps with Sunflower Seed Cheese 

These sushi wraps are so unique and delicious that they’re a must-try!

What makes them unique is the addition of the sunflower seed cheese.

The flavors are unlike anything you’ve tried before.

Sunflower seed cheese is nutty with hints of umami flavors from garlic, tamari, and miso paste.
