veggie wrap & miso mustard gravy

we got these radishes from the farmer's market and they were so pretty i had to take pictures; they aren't actually in today's recipe, but i bet they'd be a delicious addition!

veggie wrap with miso mustard gravy: serves one

miso mustard walnut gravy:
1/4 cup or so of walnuts
2 tablespoons mustard
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2-3 tablespoons miso
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
1/2 teaspoon each of salt & pepper, other fave spices/herbs
juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons tamari
water, as needed (probably a several tablespoons)

nori veg wrap:
3-4 mushrooms
3 leaves dino kale
1/4 avocado
2-3 dates or some raisins
1/2 raw or grilled bell pepper
1 nori sheet 

to make the gravy: blend all ingredients together until smooth and like gravy dressing. if it's too thick, add more water; if it's too liquid, add more walnuts or maybe a date. whatever you think it needs.
to make the wrap: slice the veggies and what not, length-wise. then layer them all on your nori sheet and spoon on some "gravy".

*i made this again today and used cilantro instead of kale, and zucchini instead of mushrooms.
FRICKIN' AMAZING. as usual, you can basically do anything to this recipe and it'll be insane.

the pics of the food aren't that good today so i'll make up for it with these lovely photos of BLOOMING LIFE in our garden. ahhh, i adore my home.

don't ya love summer? vibrant new creatures, plants and energy growing everywhere you look. my chakras are vibrating like crazy. the prana is strong. speaking of prana, i'm going to get the sanskrit version tattooed on my wrist soon! what do you think? by the way, it symbolizes the vital life force in the universe:

Dear Emily,

I just finished one of these and it blew my mind ;-) One of the best lunches I have had in a while! Will definitely be making these babies again and again, I am sure different veggies in the filling will mean a different taste every time. Thanks a million!

You blog is amazing and I am so impressed how young you are. WOW. You should be really proud. Your recipes are inspring and your images are just beautiful. Quick question... when you say mustard in many of your recipes... what type do you use? Thanks

So I'm slowly becoming a raw vegan as a default, because the process of waiting for things to heat up/simmer/boil/sautee/bake brings me to maniacal impatient tears. I cringe, I eat it before it's ready, I burn it, I can't.
In enters your blog. It is so inspiring and beautiful and simple to do. I just finished having the the veggies with the miso mustard gravy, and it was an explosion in my mouth. An orgasm, a burst of deliciosity and goodness.
I'm hooked.
You are amazing, thank you so much for your gift and your talents. I'm so happy right now!
