Hyatt Regency HB Healthy Dining Showcase

The other day a handful of Mom Bloggers were treated to a wonderful showcase of the talents of Chef Priscilla Willis on staff at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa in honor of Diabetes Awareness Month.  It was an amazing experience full of delicious and healthy food.  Chef Willis oversees The Californian restaurant's vegetarian, vegan and light fare menus.  (The Hyatt will begin offering seasonal cooking lessons beginning in 2010!) Be sure to stop in for some of the rejuvenating spa treatments in the Pacific Waters Spa where they offer one of the most rare and exotic spa treatments in the world - the Thalasso Seawater Bath.  Pacific Waters Spa also offers treatments for men and children in addition to women.

Below is the first delicious course we were treated to:

Nori Wraps -super easy, fast and great for all ages.
1 package Firm Tofu, Julienne
2 each Carrots, Julienne
1 each Cucumber, Julienne
2 each Avocado, Slices
1 each Mango, Slices
1 package Nori (seaweed) Wrapper (roasted)
1 head Bibb Lettuce

Place a sheet of Nori on a plate and filling (all the ingredients) down the diagonal center.  To fold the wrap, bring up the bottom corner and begin rolling in the sides from the left to right.  The technique is much like rolling a burrito.  Or you can tuck the ends under each other and you will have a neat bundle.  Serves 6.

Miso Sauce
1 oz. Miso Paste
1/2 cup Water
2 oz. Rice Wine Vinegar
2 packets Splenda
3 T Peanut Butter, Creamy
1 T Light Soy Sauce
2 T Sesame Oil

Wisk all ingredients together until all come together.  Taste for more seasoning.
