Sesame-Ginger Whole Grain Yam Rolls

The nutty whole grains in this recipe are packed with naturally delicious flavors, protein and healthy fats. For a nutritious punch and foolproof cooking, I boil the grains in excess water with fresh ginger. Recipe courtesy of Alisa Fleming from Go Dairy Free.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 425ºF.
  2. Bring the water to boil in a large saucepan. Add the whole grains and ginger, cover, and simmer for 1 hour, or until the grains are tender. Thoroughly drain, remove and discard the ginger, return the grains to the pot, and cover until ready to use.
  3. While the grains are cooking, place the sweet potatoes on a large baking sheet and toss with the olive or coconut oil. Roast for 25 minutes.
  4. Remove sweet potatoes from the oven and toss with 2 teaspoons sesame oil, the sesame seeds and ¼ teaspoon salt. Return to the oven for 5 more minutes.
  5. To make your grains sticky and delicious, stir in the almond butter, sweetener, rice vinegar, ½ teaspoon sesame oil, ginger powder, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Taste test and stir in more salt, to taste, if desired (I usually add about ⅛ teaspoon more).
  6. Prepare the yam rolls with the now sticky whole grains, topped with the roasted yam slices and cucumber on the nori sheets. If you aren’t familiar with sushi rolling, see this easy tutorial. Be sure to keep your hands slightly damp when pressing the grains on the nori sheets.
  7. Cut and serve with low-sodium soy sauce, tamari or coconut aminos.
Recipe Notes

Steamed Yams: No time for roasting? Go ahead and steam the cut sweet potato. Toss with the sesame oil and salt once tender.

Wrap It: If rolling sushi isn’t your thing, you can make sushi hand rolls (easier) or simply plop all of the ingredient in a lettuce wrap! The whole grain mixture tastes excellent with greens.
