Raw Vegan Sushi

I love sushi. The first time I ate it I was so surprised by the explosion of flavor that hit my tongue. It was so different from anything that I had ever eaten with it’s refreshing and interesting combination of flavors. Even though sushi is thought of to be raw because of the raw fish, it contains cooked rice. Plus, most raw recipes are also vegan so, eating fish, even if it is raw, is not in the cards.

 

The challenge was to create a raw food recipe  that would replace the rice but still have a texture that was close to what people are used to. I ended up sprouting Kamut, a wonderful grain that is full of protein and goodness. Processing it in the food processor gave it the texture that it needed to hold together. A sushi mat is needed to make this, but quite easy to use.

Using the mat, carefully and tightly, roll the seaweed into a sushi roll. Cut with a serrated knife.

    I really enjoyed these. Very close to regular sushi! At some point my sushi mat “disappeared” so I made a sushi salad with the ingredients and cut the nori into small ribbons to top. Thanks for the great recipe!

    Looks delicious! But I’d use bell pepper instead of the carrots, cause I’m not a big fan of them.
    I’ve never heard of Kamut. Where do you get it? In a health food store?
    Avocado and Portobello mushrooms seems like an interesting combo. Can’t wait to try this!

    Looks like a good recipe. One question… is toasted sesame oil raw?

      No toasted sesame oil is not raw. But you use such a small amount that it doesn’t compromise the nutritional value of recipe. If you wish to be 100% raw, you can leave that out or use cold pressed sesame oil.

    That looks so good! I want to try going raw vegan for a week or two and show everyone on my blog that they can too. The only thing that could be missing is sushi, but you’ve helped me solve that. 🙂
