Summer food means simple ingredients and quick prep so we spend less time in the kitchen and more time enjoying the season.
Our favorite kitchen hack lately are the three veggie wraps from More With Less by author and chef Jodi Moreno. In addition to these wildly easy nori wraps, we’ve also got Jodi’s collard wraps and rice paper wraps for you to try next from the cookbook.

These nori wraps are perfect for leftover rice and farmers market veggies. Shake up a batch of miso sauce and keep it on hand for an easy and healthful meal that requires zero planning and nearly as much effort to make…
veggies: avocado, sweet potato, mushrooms, cucumber
grains (cooked): sushi rice, brown rice, black rice, quinoa
others: crispy shallots garlic chips, sesame seeds, cashews, nori gomasio
sauces: spicy ginger sesame mustard, mustard miso
Place the nori on a flat surface. Spread the rice out across the sheet of nori, leaving about a 1-inch border on all sides. When working with sushi rice, it can be easier to spread if you keep a thin layer of water on your hands. Place any veggies, sauce or other additions in the center, and either roll the nori into a cone shape, or fold up the two sides and eat like a taco.

A note for LA + NYC readers: low-prep recipes are good, but no-prep recipes are better…
KazuNori, the sushi hand roll bar of our dreams, has several outposts in LA and NYC and just opened a new location in Studio City today. They don’t offer their famous hand rolls to-go, so splurge instead on their Hand Roll Kit to make perfect hand rolls at home.The kit of 20 rolls typically serves 3-5 people and is available for pickup and delivery through KazuNori Mobile and Postmates.
