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.



Marinate the mushrooms


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

    this looks very delicious. i was also sad when i had to give up sushi as a vegan. so this recipe is just a salvation for me. but i have a problem here: i live in Russia, and not all the ingredients described in the recipe can be found. so i guess i’ll have to use champignons instead of portabello mushrooms and regular wheat sprouts instead of kamut.
    other than that thank you for this amazing site!

    oh my gosh, I was looking at this recipe yesterday and thought it looked so delicious I’ll just have to try it, and then it even appeared in my dream last night…it makes my mouth water just looking/reading about it!
    Thank you so much for posting this!

    Thanks for the great idea. These look very good. I still love raw fish and that fits too.

    finding your blog with the sushi raw twist was truly great timing. First of all I’m mostly raw and 80-10-10 EXCEPT for sushi! That’s right, I only recently learned to order “hold the rice”.

    I will have to try your recipe or some variation! Found you through Twitter, so thanks so much! 🙂
