Happyolks Nori Rolls with Edamame Wasabi Spread

Goddess Huntress | Happyolks Beauty Bite Nori Roll With Edamame Wasabi Spread

I am so thrilled to feature this special Beauty Bite.  Giddy actually.

I have had such a blog crush on Happyolks for quite some time now.  I live vicariously through Kelsey’s and Shaun’s beautiful cooking photography and their recipes. I’d love to be a fly in their kitchen or be their personal dishwasher.  In fact, I’m not the only one who does…Happyolks was a finalist in the Saveur Magazine’s Best Food Blog Awards this year! Well deserved.

Today, Kelsey is sharing her Happyolks Beauty Bite on Goddess Huntress, Nori Rolls with Edamame Wasabi Spread, along with her beauty favs!

Am I the only one that wants to make out with their photos below?

Happyolks Nori Rolls with Edamame Spread

  • 8 sheets toasted nori
  • 1 peeled daikon radish
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 cup sunflower sprouts
  • 1 small mango
  • 2 small avocados
  • 24 sprigs mint
  • handful cilantro
  • (optional) 6 oz smoked wild salmon OR tofu

——–

  • 2 cups edamame
  • 2 + teaspoons wasabi powder
  • 2-4 limes
  • 8 sprigs of cilantro
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • dash of water
  • sea salt

To start, prep all of your veggies and working ingredients. Julienne the cucumbers and radish. Thinly slice the avocados and mango. Peel apart salmon, or cut tofu into 1 inch by 2 cm strips if you’re making these vegan. Create an assembly line of the proteins, veggies, and herbs then begin to prep the edamame wasabi spread.

In the bowl of a food processer blitz together the edamame, wasabi powder (adjust measurements to match your affinity), lime juice, olive oil, water, and sea salt. Mixture should be just barely chunky, but not a total paste.

Place nori sheet on a clean work surface. Spread 1/4 cup of the edamame spread onto the sheet leaving a bit of uncovered nori for grip while wrapping. At the bottom edge of the spread facing you, begin to build your roll, filling it with strips of cucumber, radish, mango, salmon or tofu, avocado, and topping with bits of sprouts, mint, and fresh cilantro. Wrap with your hands from the bottom around the filling until completely sealed. If you use an excessive amount of spread, like me, you won’t need to seal the edge shut with water and your finger. Cut each roll into 8 pieces with a super sharp knife. Repeat.

Goddess Huntress | Happyolks Kelsey Brown's Favorite Beauty Products

For a woman who executes such delicious healthy eats in the kitchen, I had to find out Kelsey Brown’s beauty secrets in and out of the kitchen.  Here’s the dish…(see what I did there? I know you did.)

GH/ What are your favorite, clean beauty products?

KB/ I’m a huge fan of SW Basics skincare line. Every product is made with five ethically-sourced ingredients or less and are handmade by real people (my friends, too!) in Brooklyn, NY. I don’t leave the house without the Vegan Lip Balm and slather their three-ingredient Cream everywhere, literally, before bed. I also love Shea Terra Organics skincare line. My go-to products are the Rose Hips Black Soap, Ghassool L’Eau de Rose Purifying Paste, and  the Tamanu-E Regeneration Cream.

GH/ Since you are an anti-oxidant guru in the kitchen, do you use any of your ingredients for DIY beauty masks, toners, etc?

KB/ I make a greek yogurt, turmeric, and honey mask every few weeks… super easy and very healing, especially after being out in the sun too long. I love apple cider vinegar as a toner, shampoo, and bug bite/pimple killer.

GH/ What is your beauty secret weapon in the kitchen?

KB/ Inflammation fighting foods are my health and beauty allies in the kitchen. Fresh turmeric, ginger, seaweeds, mushrooms, berries, dark green veg, and healthy fats from salmon, avocado, and olive oil. These foods naturally calm your immune system, improve digestion, and reduce inlammation in skin and your organs.

Thank you, Kelsey for the eats and all the anti-aging goodness.  I’m thrilled for all of us reading this to add more beauty brands to our wish lists!  

Keep up with all of Kelsey’s mouthwatering, youthful recipes and beautiful prose at Happyolks.
