Quinoa Nori Rolls
  1. For best results use the KitchenAid Platinum ExactSlice Food Processor
  2. Place the quinoa and stock into a medium sized saucepan. Bring to the boil and simmer, partially covered over a low heat for 20 minutes. Turn off the heat, cover and set aside 5 minutes. Allow to cool
  3. To prepare the vegetables, cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, scrape out the seeds and discard. Cut the avocado in half, remove the stone and peel. Cut each half into two lengthwise sections
  4. Fit the medium shredding disc (or julienne blade) to the food processor. Stack the 4 halves of cucumber into the large food chute. Using speed 2, shred into strips. Remove from the bowl and set aside
  5. Lay the carrots into the large food chute, using speed 2, shred. Remove and set aside
  6. Change to the adjustable slicing blade. Lay the avocado into the large food chute. Select speed 2 and thinly slice. Remove and set aside. Repeat with the capsicum and snow peas, remove and set aside
  7. To Assemble the Rolls: In a mixing bowl, combine the cooked quinoa with about 2 tbsp of the mayonnaise, mixing well
  8. Spread the quinoa mixture evenly over the nori sheets, leaving a 1cm boarder along one edge. Top with some avocado, some of the cucumber, carrot, capsicum and snow peas.
  9. Dollop with a little extra mayonnaise and top with a little pickled ginger and wasabi
  10. Firmly roll up and place seam side down on a serving plate. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Serve immediately with extra mayonnaise, pickled ginger and wasabi
Tips & Hints:
  • For best results when shredding with the food processor, trim the ends of the vegetables and have the vegetables an even in thickness.
Japanese Style Mayonnaise
  1. Fit the mini bowl and the mini blade to the processor. Place the whole egg and egg yolks into the bowl. Select speed 2. Pour the oil into the narrow food tube (it has a hole in the bottom which allows the oil to slowly drip into the mayonnaise).
  2. Refill the tube as the oil empties and process until mayonnaise is thick. Add the sugar, salt, mustard and lemon then pulse briefly to combine
Tips & Hints:
  • The remaining mayonnaise can be stored in an airtight container and refrigerated for up to 5 days.
