Super Easy Veggie Sushi

I LOVE sushi!

However today we decided to take a challenge and make sushi without the rice.

This “sushi” recipe is super easy to make. We prepared a vegan cream cheese in advance and stored it in the fridge until dinner time.

 

Assembling this meal is a piece of cake :-) In fact, you can get your kids to help you out and have some fun together.

Ingredients:

  • home made vegan cream cheese (hummus will also work)
  • whole grain tortillas (we also used rice paper and nori wraps instead of tortillas)
  • fresh spinach leaves
  • cucumbers, cut into sticks
  • bell peppers, cut into sticks
  • carrots, shredded finely
  • avocado, sliced into sticks
  • organic extra firm tofu
  • any other vegetable of your choice…be creative here :-)

 

Assembly time:

  • Spread the “cream cheese” mixture on the tortillas, stopping 1 inch before the edge (the filling will spread to the edges once the tortilla is rolled).
  • Top with spinach, peppers, avocado, carrot, cucumber, tofu….and whatever else your heart desires.
  • Roll the tortillas up into a tight wrap.
  • You could wrap each roll in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve (for easy slicing).
  • At serving time, remove the plastic wrap (if necessary).
  • Using a bread knife, trim about ½ inch from each end of the tortilla wraps.
  • Slice the logs into 1-inch thick pieces.
  • Transfer the sushi pieces to a serving platter, spiral side up.
  • Serve.

Bon appétit!
