Vegan sushi is such a great thing and fun to make. I'm not perfect at it, but I like to try. It's an opportunity to be really creative with the fillings, rice colourings and shapes. Some of mine unwillingly ended up looking a little bit like poke balls and angry birds characters.
I also think that vegan sushi is one of the best packed lunch options to have. The taste is very nice and most importantly they make the colleagues eating canteen sandwiches really jealous.
This time I used these ingredients in all sorts of combinations in the vegan sushi rolls:
- white sushi rice
- beetroot coloured sushi rice
- fried tofu
- yellow and orange carrots
- marinated kabocha squash with mirin, soy sauce and toasted sesame oil
- sea salad containing dried organic dulse, organic nori and organic sea lettuce
- red homegrown chilli
- umeboshi paste
