  1. Place seaweed snacks in between two slightly wet paper towels and allow to soften for at least 5-7 minutes. Make sure they aren’t too wet or the seaweed snacks will get too soft to work with.
  2. Prep filling ingredients. Cook rice, cut all of the veggies. Mash the chickpeas with a fork, then divide them into two separate bowls and mix in the two sauces, one in each bowl. 
  3. You can use as many or few sauces as you want, just don’t forget to divide the mashed chickpeas appropriately. Crush the chips.
  4. Begin assembly of the sushi type rolls. Take one seaweed snack out of the paper towel, lay onto a flat surface and add fillings of choice. 
  5. Then roll the seaweed snack around the fillings, it should easily stick together in a tight roll, just don’t overfill. Mix and match filling ingredients to create a variety of rolls. Let the kids have fun building their own!
  6. If you want to make some of the rolls “crunchy,” take a few of the assembled rolls and using a spoon or your finger coat the outside of the roll in sauce. Then slowly roll it around in the bowl of crushed chips to coat the outside with a crunchy exterior!
