Vegan sushi

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


  1. 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.)
  2. Cut avocado in half, and cut each half into 6 slices. Cut other veggies into long, thin strips. Cut Tofurky into thirds.
  3. Place nori on a flat surface with the shiny, smooth side down, with the grains going from left to right.
  4. Spread cooked rice onto nori, leaving about an inch at the sides closest and furthest from you.
  5. Put filling ingredients on the rice on the side closest to you.
  6. Roll away from you, keeping good tension and not tearing the nori.
  7. Cut with serrated knife into 5-6 sushi pieces per roll.
