Super Food Vegan Sushi

This recipe might come off a bit confusing because I am not familiar with sushi terminology. I hope this gets the point across.. Just thinly slice all veggies and place them as the picture shows.

1 Sheet of toasted nori
Approx ¼-½ cups cooked Basmati rice
1 ½ tbsp chia seeds
Approx. 4 carrot and red pepper ‘matchsticks’
3 thin slices avocado
3 thin slices smoked tofu
½ tbsp vegan cream cheese
1 broccoli floret; sliced thinly
3 thin slices celery; halved
*You may use any of your favorite veggies.
Cook rice and mix with chia seeds. Place nori sheet onto a sheet of plastic wrap. Spread out rice and seed mixture. Spread ‘cream cheese’ on the tofu slices. Lay on wrap. Next, lay vegetables straight across the width of nori. Roll wrap over veggies and pull back tightly and evenly then roll the remainder. Slice 1 inch pieces with a bread knife. Serve with pickled ginger, low sodium Tamari and vegan wasabi sauce (some wasabi contains milk, so be aware!). Sushi is one of those arts that only get better through practice. I can’t begin to tell you how many sushi ‘bowls’ I’ve eaten out of failure.

(Excuse the jank container, I made it for my husband's lunch.)


  1. I actually have everything to make sushi and I have never used it. I might just whip it out and use it.

  2. Gosh, we don't even have the proper tools and we still make it once a week. I couldn't imagine how often we'd make sushi if we did.:)
