The health benefits? It's lowers blood pressure and helps fight against heart disease and strokes. It's low in calories, helps keep blood sugar levels stable and helps lower cholesterol. It helps treat anaemia and fatigue, boosting stamina, containing potassium, magnesium, iron, folic acid as well as antioxidant properties. So what's not to love?
Usually for wraps I use nori sheets, you can purchase it raw from health food stores. If I feel like something heavier, I go for a raw zucchini/seed wrap. Occasionally I'll use rice paper rolls, freshly made up Vietnamese spring rolls are always a treat!
The sauce is simply apple cider vinegar with maple, ginger, garlic, tahini and olive oil. I'm not big on measuring, I usually just throw everything in as I feel like and taste. Sometimes I want it a little sweeter, and sometimes the tart taste is what I'm after so it all depends. Play around with it.
I thought I'd also include a picture of Dad getting his mooncake making skills on...
