SERVES: 8 PREP TIME: 15 mins COOK TIME: 20 mins


  • ½ cup flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 medium mild chilli, finely chopped
  • 250g baby spinach, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 kilo lamb mince
  • 1 packet nori seaweed sheets


  1. Preheat your oven to approximately 180°C.
  2. Place the parsley, garlic, chilli, spinach and all of the herbs and spices in a food processor and blend.
  3. Add the mince to the mixture and blend again until well combined.
  4. Then take a spoonful of the mixture and spread a thin layer of it over a sheet of nori.
  5. Roll the nori sheet as tightly as you can so it resembles a sushi roll and repeat the process with all the mixture.
  6. Place the nori rolls on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for about 20 minutes.
  7. Once cooked remove from the oven and cut the rolls diagonally across into sushi sized slices and serve with your favourite salad or greens.


  • You can use any mince for this recipe and change the herbs and spices to suit; there are endless opportunities to tailor the flavours depending on how you are feeling or what the weather is like!
  • These rolls can also be eaten cold straight from the fridge and/or are great in a lunchbox especially with a dip like guacamole.
  • Stored in an airtight container you can keep the rolls for up to 3 days in the fridge.
