Rainbow Vegan Sushi
Serves: 3 servings
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar (optional)
  • 6 sheets nori
  • ½ avocado, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 carrots, cut into matchsticks
  • ¾ cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1 apple, cut into matchsticks
  • Handful of spinach
  • Tamari or coconut aminos (alone, or blend with almond butter!)
  1. Remove the stalk from the cauliflower and separate the florets. Pulse in a food processor until small and crumbly, or use a grater. Saute in a skillet with coconut oil and salt over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, until beginning to soften. Remove from heat and stir in vinegar (and optional sugar). Let cool before using.
  2. Place a bamboo sushi-rolling mat (or linen tea towel topped with plastic wrap) on your work surface and a nori sheet on top, shiny side down (make sure the lines in the nori are horizontal). Spread ½ cup of cauliflower rice over the bottom half of the nori and pat down—go to the edges on the left and right, and leave a ½-inch space on the bottom edge. Layer fillings evenly across the rice spread.
  3. Pinch the mat and bottom section of nori with your thumb and index finger, lift and roll over the fillings, using your other fingers to push the fillings in as you cover them. Once your index finger hits the surface, give the roll a squeeze—not too tight or you'll lose your fillings! Continue rolling and gently squeezing until you're finished.
  4. Unwrap the roll from the towel or mat, place on a cutting board, and slice in half with a sharp knife, then into 8 pieces. Use a gentle sawing motion and let the blade do the work so you don't crush the roll.
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 for the remaining nori.
  6. Serve with a side of tamari or coconut aminos. If you like a peanutty sauce, mix it with some nut butter!
This is not that easy to do from words alone, so be patient! I suggest watching a YouTube video for a visual on how to roll the sushi. On first try, you'll probably realize you skimped on the fillings, especially around the edges, so don't be afraid to load it up!
