Vegetable Nori Rolls

I know y’all will get testy with me if I call this recipe sushi since I don’t use any fish, so I will leave it at Nori Rolls.  I make this recipe usually once a week, and the rice will last me through many rolls.  The wraps are portable, so it is a great lunch box option for kids or adults.  Rolling sushi is also surprisingly easy once you get the hang of it.  I hope y’all enjoy this recipe as much as I do.

Note: this recipe uses an Instant Pot pressure cooker.  If one is not available for your use, the recipe can be created by slow cooking the beans on the stove, cooking in a crock pot, or using canned beans instead.  Your choice!
