Comments on this Recipe

I am confused to the use of the vegan mayonnaise. Why use an egg free product if one of the main ingredients is eggs? did someone just put the Did someone just put the Vegenaise in out of force of habit?

This was very tasty. I made some substitutions for the veggies using what I had on hand: green bell pepper for the red, no celery but used radishes and carrots. I used full fat veganaise and sprinkled some smoked paprika into the mix. YUM! The wrap was a bit chewy where the nori overlapped, but I didn't mind too much since I love the stuff. Next time I might try rolling it, that way the nori doesn't overlap as much. Also, maybe more filling per roll. Overall, we loved this dinner. Served it with sauteed summer squash and some edamame.

I made this with baked tofu instead of eggs and it was superb although I think it might work better with a tortilla instead of the nori.

This was very delicious. :)
