Sushi is one of Cook 1’s favorite foods, in fact its own food group in her mind. We’ve found a way to make it a delicious vegan meal by using interesting combinations of ingredients that capture the textures and tang and sweetness of sushi in restaurants. This recipe is vegan/vegetarian, dairy free, and egg free.
Season rice with 1 Tbsp Rice Vinegar and mix well. Assemble sushi using an assortment of vegetables from the above list.
To assemble, create a stripe of rice horizontally along the center of the nori. The stripe should leave about a 1 inch border on the top and bottom. Center your assortment in the rice and make sure not to over-stuff your rolls. Use a bamboo mat, plastic wrap, or gently use your hands to roll the sushi into a tube. Cut in half and then in three to create bite sized rolls.
Here we got creative and reserved the hummus, pickles and some sweet potato for a “Falafel-esque” twist on sushi. A last minute idea from Cook 2 and oy, so delicious!
For a spicy sauce similar to Japanese spicy mayo, mix together tahini, vinegar, water and cayenne. Drizzle on or in sushi for a great kick!
