  3. Remove from the food processor and place into a mixing bowl.
  4. Add the chia, coconut sugar, salt and apple cider vinegar.
  5. Allow to sit for 10-15 minutes before making the sushi rolls for the chia seeds to set.
For the Chili Almond Sauce
  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Set aside until ready to use.
For the Sushi Roll
  1. Center one sheet nori on a bamboo sushi mat. Wet your hands.
  2. Using your hands, spread a thin layer of cauliflower rice on the sheet of nori, and press into a thin layer. Arrange ¼ of the avocado, tomato, bell pepper and arugula in a line down the center of the rice. Lift the end of the mat, and gently roll it over the ingredients, pressing gently. Roll it forward to make a complete roll. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  3. Cut each roll into 4 to 6 slices using a wet, sharp knife.
