View Full Version : Nori Sheets/Rolls

Does anyone know how to get sheets of raw nori more "flexible" to make veggie rolls with? I have some raw nori and it's almost crispy in texture and breaks when I try to roll it. I've tried water but it doesn't really help. I used to make vegetable sushi a lot before going raw, and I got them softer back then with hot rice/water in the middle. I know it's possible to do it raw, but I just don't know how. Gopal's brand makes a raw snack of nori rolls stuffed with a variety of spices, sesame seeds, etc. They got their nori rolls soft and chewy! Any ideas?

I have found raw nori that I can roll pretty easily. My problem is slicing it up! It really doesn't want to slice well.
It has been a while, but what I have done with the nori in the past, is I will cut the sheets in 2 or 3 pieces, stuff whatever it is inside that I want rolled up, and roll the nori diagonally, to form a cone shape. That way, I can just take the whole cone shape and eat it!

What I do, is to use ingredients with a bit of sauce, this softens up the nori a bit, so you can roll it. I don't care for nori rolls but my hubby loves them, and so we make them often.
Hope this helps. Actually just a bit of juice or water will soften them up.

I usually use the nori wrap as a secondary wrapper. I use a romaine lettuce, put the nori wrap over the lettuce and put the avocado and cucumber in thereafter...
