Vegetable Sushi Variation

If you are up for some twist, then this vegetable sushi variation is right on your alley. I do have to mention that they may differ from your classic sushi. 

Like I have said before, I am not a sushi expert. I just love them so much. 

Burrito Sushi Wrap

If I want bigger sushi and dont want to struggle with wrapping and rolling the nori sheet. I will make a bigger version. 

Burrito Sushi is basically larger sushi with extra filling. You can make batches of burrito, depending on your nori sheet size. 

Tofu Sushi

Are you cutting down rice? Or dont have any rice at all? Substitute rice with tofu. You mush the tofu and add it to the nori. 

I usually add red pepper, carrot and avocado as crunchy texture to balance the soft tofu. 

Sweet Fruity Sushi

A slightly sweet sushi version by adding sweet filling. I dont have a sweet tooth. But this type of sushi makes a great variation. 

Add tomatoes, manggo, avocado and top it off with slices of kiwi to your sushi. You got a nice balance of savoury and sweetness.
