  • Handful of sliced or crumbled tempeh or tofu (optional)
  • Romaine lettuce leaves, cut in half
  • One green apple, sliced into thin strips

Directions

1. To assemble, just spread a bit of your cooked grain in the middle of the nori sheet, than layer on your other ingredients, and top with a dollop of the sriracha mayo.
