Sushi - Vegan style

I've been dying to make some vegan sushi. Especially after seeing others eat sushi, I just want some! So why not have some? Vegan sushi that is! This is my first try and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. We loved this dinner, what a fun way to eat vegetables! :)


  • 1 cup quinoa (or rice) - cooked with 1 cup of water 
  • Green onions 
  • A few fresh herbs (I used: oregano, thyme, cilantro) - sliced thin; sprig of parsley to decorate.
  • Dash of soy sauce and hot sauce
  • 1 carrot - sliced thin lengthwise
  • 1 cucumber - sliced thin lengthwise
  • Almond Jalapeno Jack Cheese - 2 slices (or your favorite vegan cheese)
  • 1 small handful sprouts (we use mung bean sprouts)
  • 1/2 onion - sliced thin
  • 1 avocado - sliced 
  • 1/2 red bell pepper - sliced thin
  • Roasted Seaweed - Sushi Nori sheet
  • Wasabi
  1. Prepare quinoa (we use our rice cooker)
  2. Add green onions, herbs and sauce to cooked quinoa and set aside. Cool to room temperature.
  3. Prepare vegetables.
  4. Place Sushi Nori with shiny side down on clean surface. Spread quinoa (or rice) evenly and leave a one inch space at the edge.
  5. Place fillings. 
  6. Roll sushi until the edge of the nori is placed under the sushi
  7. Shape the roll by pressing slightly with both hands. Slice into six + pieces.
  8. Serve with soy sauce and wasabi
