Vegan Sushi Recipe
This vegan sushi recipe is a wonderful lunch or dinner recipe - and such fun to make! If you are new to rolling nori wrappers, I highly suggest watching this sushi rolling video.
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:
Roasted or Raw Zucchini
Pickled Purple Cabbage
Pineapple (maybe even grill it?)
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.
