Vegan Sushi

Sushi is one of my favorite dishes ever. At home we only eat it when it’s a especial occasion or when we have guests. But it’s SO good and SOO easy to make, that every time I do it I just remind myself that I should repeat it more often. Plus, is super healthy and nutritious!!

Also, I feel like in this world there are two types of people: the ones that eat sushi with wasabi and the ones that miss out!! I’m definitely a wasabi person!! Believe me, with just adding a tiny bit of wasabi paste in each piece of sushi, everything makes sense in your mouth!! But be careful with the amount, otherwise you’ll end up crying!! Oh! And don’t forget to dip it in soy sauce, it makes a huge difference.

As for the sushi pieces, I like to keep it simple, but you can all get creative with the filling ingredients and add pepper, tofu, cucumber… This is just how I like to do it, take note:

INGREDIENTS (for 3 people)

 1 package of seaweed sheets

250 g of short grain sushi rice

400 ml. water

1 tbsp vinegar

2 carrots

1/2 avocado

100 g of spinach

soy sauce

wasabi paste

DIRECTIONS

Place the rice in a bowl and cover with cold water for 20 min. Then, add the rice in a pot and the 400 ml. of water and bring to boil until the rice has absorved all the water and it’s cooked.

Let the rice cool down for some time and add 1 tablespoon of vinegar.

*You can also mix the rice with toasted sesame seeds for extra flavour.

Place one sheet of seaweed on top of the rolling mat and spread two generous tablespoons of rice on top of the sheet, make sure to leave the endings without rice, otherwise it will be imposible to roll it.

Place in the middle some leaves of raw spinach, some slices of carrot and some slices of avocado, to taste.

Roll everything and make pressure with your hands once the roll is completely covered by the rolling mat.

Add some water to the extreme of the seaweed sheet in order to stick it together.

Cut the roll into pieces and serve with some soy sauce do dip in and also some wasabi paste (make sure to add just a tiny little bit in each piece as it has a very strong, but essential, taste).

NOTE: The wasabi paste is easily found in the paste form but if you want the healthiest format I’d recomend you to buy the wasabi powder. Then you’ll just have to mix it with some drops of water and enjoy. Also, bare in mind that powder wasabi is a lot more spicy than the regular.

  1. Yeah, love sushi too. We should totally have a sushi party! I didn’t know you could use regular vinegar too, the rice vinegar in our stores have lot of added ingredients. Thanks for the tip, can’t wait to make sushi very soon again! Xx

    1. One of the best things about basmati rice is that it’s not a sticky grain and you can notice the free grains in your mouth. To make sushi you need the sticky grains in order to get the rolls consistent!! I usually buy sushi rice that you can find in any regular supermarket…I’ve sometimes even used white overcooked (but not too overcooked) rice. But I’m unsure about the basmati rice… maybe if you overcook it as well it will become more sticky??!! :S And I use regular white vinegar but you can also use rice vinegar!! Hope this helped 🙂 let me know how it turned out xx
