As long as I can remember, California rolls have been a staple food in my life. There were years when every Wednesday or Thursday was Japanese day and of course, California rolls were in order. There was nothing not to like. In the words of Joey from Friends: Rice? Good. Seaweed? Good. Crab? Good. Cucumber? Good. Avocado? Gooood.
When I discovered I was diabetic, it took me a few months to realize that California rolls were no longer a viable option for me. There is just too much rice to justify them as a meal.
Then, the other day, I got an Ibotta rebate for imitation crab meat and a light bulb went off in my head. I bought the crab, cucumber, avocado and some Ole Xtreme High Fiber tortillas and made my own low-carb version of my beloved roll.
- 2 sticks imitation crab
- 1/2 small, ripe avocado
- 1/4 medium cucumber cut in matchstick shapes
- 1 Ole Xtreme High Fiber Tortilla
- Cut your avocado and cucumber.
- You can toast your tortilla if you'd like to. I ate mine straight from the fridge because all the things inside are cold.
- Lay out your tortilla and place your crab, avocado and cucumber inside. Roll up, cut in half and enjoy!
Note: You can also add seaweed and/or caviar to this roll!
