Vegan MoFo: Raw Vegan Sushi Rolls

The weather is warming up, I feel Summer coming! This means I want to eat lighter foods, and eat more raw vegan. The Beloved bought me a new raw food "uncook" book while he was in Perth last week, Raw Food Reawakening and I've been inspired again. So tonight I made sushi using cauliflower for "rice" with the usual fillings like carrot, cucumber, alfalfa, and avocado. I made a dressing with tamari, sesame oil, and rice wine vinegar, but unfortunately forgot the pickled ginger - oh well.  It was pretty quick to put together, but a bit more messy than traditional sushi rolls. My little food processor definitely made light work of the cauliflower florets. They need to be eaten straight after you make them, in my experience they just sog too much to take in a lunchbox to work. But they are pretty filling, and just as tasty as the regular kind, without all the empty calories.

  1. These look incredibly tasty! I've heard of people using cauliflower as a rice substitute. I might have to try this. Thanks for sharing! :)
