Blend pumpkin seeds with the sundried tomatoes, including the soak water, and miso until smooth in the food processor, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. Use water for consistency as needed.
Place a nori on a mesh dehydrator sheet. On the shorter edge of the nori closest to you, spread the "refried beans" pate thinly to cover the nori. Leave a tiny (1/8 inch) space uncovered. Repeat with rest of ingredients-> 4 sheets of nori can fit on 1 mesh dehydrator sheet.
Dehydrate at 145F for 1-2 hours. When dry but still tacky, roll the nori tightly, using a bit of water on the uncovered nori bit to seal the roll. Place seam side down on the mesh tray. Lower to 115F and continue to dry. Some like their nori wraps to be still tacky while others prefer them quite dry. Choose your preference :)
Variation: Try using other herbs/spices to vary the taste of the pate, like adding in curry spice, Thai spice, Italian seasoning, etc. to taste.
Variation: Replace the pumpkin seed with sunflower seed or do half pumpkin & sunflower seed (1 cup each). Feel free to combine this variation with the variation above of using different herbs/spices.
Variation: Because this recipe uses miso, it doesn't qualify as SALF or SOYF. Try using chickpea miso for a soy-free version instead (taste test pate according to your liking).
Feel free to use a thicker amount of pate on the nori to make thicker wraps (you'll have to allot more time for them to dry). I once made this recipe with such a thick layer of "refried beans" that I couldn't really roll them. While eating them open faced (as is) was just fine, I decided to cut them into squares and use them as a topping on crackers. Yummers!!
I've also added nutritional yeast to taste to the pate, sometimes with just a few Tbsp to much more (say 1/4-1/3 cup). It all depends how cheezy you like it and if you're into nutritional yeast, which some claim is a neurotoxin. Your choice, as always :)
These dehydrated wraps are great to use as trail food or when you're out on the go. Makes a good lunch too ---just add a salad and you're good!
