  1. Prepare uncooked Zone Orzo according to package directions. Let drain a good while in a strainer.
  2. Meanwhile, grate 3 tablespoons of carrot and cut cucumber into long thin strips, set aside.
  3. Whisk sauce ingredients together and set aside
  4. Whisk the cream cheese, vinegar and Splenda together in a small bowl.
  5. Squeeze as much moisture out of the orzo as you can by rolling in a linen towel or paper towel.
  6. Stir the cooked orzo into cream cheese bowl until well incorporated.
  7. Lay the nori sheet on a bamboo mat or clean linen towel. Spread the orzo mixture over the nori leaving ½ inch around 3 edges and a 2 inch strip along the edge farthest from you. (This may take some practice.)
  8. Lay the cucumber strips on the orzo at the edge nearest you. Make a row of grated carrots next to them. Moisten the far edge of nori with finger dipped in water and roll tightly.
  9. Place seam side down. Slice the roll into 6 pieces with a moist knife to prevent sticking.
