This past weekend, my parents came to visit. Now my parents both eat and enjoy fish (in fact, it’s the only meat my father WILL eat) but they were both squeamish about trying raw fish so I figured this would be a good weekend to try some vegetarian sushi. I had some fresh vegetables, but no specific recipe, so I thought I’d just roll them up in the sushi rice and nori and see what happened.
Any vegetables you have around that you want to try. I used carrots and cucumbers, along with avocado
Vegetarian sushi can have any variety of ingredients. What you see pictured here is avocado, cucumber and shredded carrot. Preparation was a snap.I shredded the carrots into a small bowl and sliced the avocado into thin strips.
I used baby carrots (prepared, no fuss, and usually fresher and better tasting) and long peeled chunks of cucumber, prepared as usual into 8′ strips of a quarter-inch square. I laid these all neatly lengthwise onto the rice and then rolled it all up.
My parents loved the vegetarian sushi and I have to say, for something with no fish in it, it didn’t taste half bad.
