We love vegan sushi, especially when we can smother it in wasabi! Eric and I both are glutton’s for punishment with the wasabi - seeing just how much can we tolerate. Typically we both end up with tearing eyes and running noses by the end of a meal.
This weekend I wanted to make sushi but was lacking the time to properly roll it. If you haven’t rolled sushi before it can be a bit trickier than you think! I found a recipe in which you simply make sushi “balls”. This seemed simple as it was, but I wanted über simple so I took it to another level.
Basically, I took the sushi ball recipe and didn’t roll it up! I served right from the bowl, sprinkled some sesame seeds on top, and each individual added however much tamari and wasabi they desired.
Cook up the sushi rice to make approximately 2 cups when done, usually this is 1 cup of rice to 2 cups of water
- 1/3 cup rice vinegar
- 2 Tablespoons sugar or a mixture of sugar, agave and/or stevia per your tastes
- 1-2 tsp salt, taste as you go along and adjust to your liking
- 2-3 sheets of nori, toasted and then cut very small or crushed up
- 4 carrots minced
- 4 green onions minced
- 1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds, black for a more dramatic look
- Wasabi and tamari soy sauce as desired!
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Once the rice has been cooked mix it in with everything. Put in the refrigerator for a couple of hours in order for the flavors to mingle. Serve with some sesame seeds sprinkled on top. Finish it all off with tamari and wasabi to your liking. Enjoy!
