They say it’s not the wrapping that counts, but what’s inside.

In this recipe, there’s a nice balance between what’s in it and what it’s wrapped in. Nori (seaweed) and eggs are the main ingredients that wrap up other healthy breakfast vegetables in this dish.

If you can make an omelette, you can easily make this quick breakfast sushi egg roll. It’s like a marriage between the standard omelette, the breakfast burrito and sushi.

This recipe has some interesting Asian flavours with some huge health benefits from the seaweed.  Nori is stocked full of minerals, protein, Vitamin C and iodine. It’s extremely helpful if your thyroid or adrenals are taxed.

If it seems too cumbersome to make an a perfect omelette so you can roll it up to make it look like sushi, make your life easier and scramble the eggs instead. Just wrap up your favourite breakfast vegetables and the scrambled egg in a nori wrapper, like you would do for a sushi roll or a burrito. This way, the seaweed becomes the wrapper instead.
