This vegan sushi is so good you wont even miss the fish (if that’s your thing). The mango texture gives this sushi recipe some fishy vibes without the raw fish! I love the tasty combination of the mango with the teriyaki sauce! I chose to use brown rice to make my sushi a little healthier. It’s harder to roll than traditional sushi rice, but I think it’s worth the extra effort. This dish is definitely healthy enough to be one of my weekly go-to meals. It’s quick, easy, fun, and a little different.
Making vegan sushi can be super fun or super frustrating depending on if you have the right tools! It is SO much easier to make sushi with bamboo roller sheets and a good knife! I would recommend a starter kit like this one I found on amazon.
Cook 1 cup of brown rice in 1 1/4 cup of water on the stove until it is soft. Then, stir in 4 tsp of rice vinegar into the rice until it begins to stick together. I skip the sugar normally used in sushi rice because I like to make things healthier.
Chop up you veggies and fruit into long strips.
Cover a sushi roller in saran wrap and lay a seaweed sheet on it, coating in a thin layer of rice.
Then, in a line, put in your chopped up carrots, cucumbers, mango and avocado. Slowly roll until it's all one roll, making sure to not let your plastic roll into the inside. Then cut your roll into sushi pieces. If you're having trouble with this step (it took me lots of tries to get this right, don't worry), look up videos on sushi rolling on youtube! The key seems to be to have a really sharp knife!
Dip in your favorite sauce and enjoy!
