Plant Based Sushi Recipe
Posted on November 28 2017
Hello there SwimSzner's!
I am sooo honored to be this spring semesters blogger. If you have not read the post with a little bit about me already in it, I will share here as well.
My name is Madison Hubbell and I am an aspiring Plant Based Nutritionist and Health Coach. My home is sunny San Diego and I go to school at Mesa Community College. I love yoga, the beach, and cooking! I cannot wait to share more blogs with all of you, I have sooo many ideas starting from recipes, to natural beauty products, to travel, and even positive affirmations and mantras! I hope that excites you JUST as much as it excites me!
So for my first blog post I decided to start with something I am comfortable with.... RECIPE!
I love cooking/creating in the kitchen and I have the perfect recipe that I am sure all of you will enjoy. This happens to be a PLANT BASED SUSHI ROLL! Saaaaaay what?
I promise you this recipe is low budget, healthy, and simple:)
- Nori Paper
- Brown Rice
- Romaine Lettuce
- 1 Can of Chickpeas
- Vegan Mayonnaise
- Dijon Mustard
- Garlic Powder
- Chili Powder
- Create the chickpea mash. Drain and rinse the can of chickpeas. Begin mashing them up but leave some chunks for texture. Add at least 1-2 tablespoons of the vegan mayo and mix. Add at least 1-2 tablespoons of the dijon mustard. Season the mix with garlic powder, chili powder, and pepper until you enjoy (1 teaspoon of each should suffice).
- Next lay out the nori paper and have a bowl of brown rice (already cooked) and a bowl of water. First get your fingers wet and then grab the rice and smush it a little on to the paper. Keep dipping your fingers in the water before grabbing the rice, this will keep it from sticking to you. Be sure not to get too close to the out-side edges or it can get messy. I like about 1 centimeter thick of rice.
- Then lay out the romaine lettuce toward the bottom of the paper.
- Add the chickpea mash on top of the lettuce.
- Add the avocado next to the mash.
- Roll the paper and inner contents from the bottom up as tight as possible.
- When you get to the top make sure you have about an inch of just nori paper. Get this part wet so it will stick to itself. Roll it up!
It is really a lot easier than you think and I would not recommend it if it was not. I hope this inspires your next lunch or snack! I like cutting the roll in half and eating it like a burrito, or you can cut small pieces and dip it into some soy sauce!
