How to make vegan sushi
- 6 pieces of nori (square dried seaweed, can be found in the Asian section of the supermarket for around $2 per package of 10)
- 1 carrot
- 1/2 yellow bell pepper
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1 avocado
- 6 slices of Tofurky (any flavor, we like Italian Deli)
- Bruschetta spread or giardiniera (or any other sauce-type things you like)
- 1-1/2 cups of Botan calrose rice
- Steam rice with 2 cups of water. Can also be done with mixing rice vinegar and mirin into the rice. (4 Tbsp rice vinegar, 3 Tbsp sugar, 2 tsp salt, 2 Tbsp mirin -- heat all on stove until bubbly, mix in with cooked rice.)
- Cut avocado in half, and cut each half into 6 slices. Cut other veggies into long, thin strips. Cut Tofurky into thirds.
- Place nori on a flat surface with the shiny, smooth side down, with the grains going from left to right.
- Spread cooked rice onto nori, leaving about an inch at the sides closest and furthest from you.
- Put filling ingredients on the rice on the side closest to you.
- Roll away from you, keeping good tension and not tearing the nori.
- Cut with serrated knife into 5-6 sushi pieces per roll.
