Vegan Sushi

It just so happens that one of the best foods to eat out and at home is... Sushi. Most people think "raw fish" when they hear sushi. While it's true that you won't find any sushi restaurants without raw fish (unless they're vegan of course), you can always find an abundance of vegan sushi. In fact the word sushi means "vinegared rice", not "dead sea animals". And speaking of rice... sushi rice is some of the highest grade and best tasting rice in the world. Here's a really great sushi recipe for home on vimeo ---> Vegan Sushi Video.

The great thing about sushi restaurants is that they are more than willing to make you something custom that you want. As a vegan this is great, because don't we all hate the feeling of making the server at a restaurant have to work extra hard to get us something we can eat.

Consider all the vegan friendly sushi options:
  •  Avocado Roll
  • Cucumber Roll
  • Vegetable Roll
  • Miso Soup (Miso Hungry ;)
  • Edamame
  • Salad
  • Vegetable Tempura (as long as there's no egg in the batter)
Another cool thing about sushi is that it can be found at most supermarkets now too... Whole Foods probably has some of the best and most fresh vegan sushi available at retail stores. Here's a couple of sites to check out with many great vegan sushi recipes ---> www.marisabaggett.com/vegan-sushi/ and www.fourgreensteps.com.
