Make Your Own Vegan Sushi

I'm really trying to be more conscious about packing my meals with a variety of colorful veggies. This recipe is incredibly versatile so get creative with the veggies (or fruit!) you’d like to add to your roll. Here are a few ideas of what you can add to your vegan sushi:

  • Cucumber

  • Roasted or Raw Zucchini

  • Pickled Purple Cabbage

  • Shitake mushrooms

  • Portobello mushrooms

  • Kimchi

  • Pineapple (maybe even grill it?)

  • Mango

  • Roasted cauliflower

  • Asparagus (raw or sautéed)

I used sushi rice for this recipe, but you could try it with other types of rice - I think black rice and brown rice would also be wonderful!

Tips for Making Nori Rolls

This recipe is not necessarily difficult, but rolling the nori is a little finicky. I definitely recommend watching the video linked about, but here's a few other thoughts:

Don't overstuff the rolls with veggies. Keep it to maximum of 4 to 6 sticks of each veggie type spread out on each roll. Don't use too much rice. Don't leave empty spots, but make sure it's a thin layer of rice. Keep a firm grip and once you start rolling, don't stop!

I hope you have as much fun with this recipe as I did.

How to cook Vegan Sushi Recipe

  1. Place the sushi rice and water in a medium stock pot and bring to a boil. Cover the pot, and let simmer for 10 minutes. Let the rice rest, covered, for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, chop all vegetables.
  3. Uncover the rice and gently mix in the vinegar, sugar, and salt.
  4. Lay a nori sheet flat on a sushi mat. Cover with rice, leaving 1 cm empty on the top and bottom of the nori sheet. If the rice becomes too sticky, moisten your hands with water and press it out across the nori.
  5. Lay a few slices of the bell pepper, avocado, zucchini, carrot, and greens across the middle of the nori roll and rice.
  6. Moisten the ends of the nori roll with a little water, so it will stick together.
  7. Using the sushi mat, roll the nori away from you, keeping a firm grip so the roll sticks together. *
  8. Using a very sharp knife, cut through the center of the roll. Place the two pieces next to each other and cut identical 3/4 inch pieces.
  9. Repeat with the other 3 sheets of nori.
  10. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with your choice of sauce.
