This vegan sushi recipe is a family favorite. I love how the boys can make it their own, and it’s a super fun family activity to make! You can even eat this as a sushi bowl if you have someone that prefers the throw in a bowl type of dinner.

Ingredients for Making Vegan Sushi

The right ingredients are key to making great sushi that holds together and tastes amazing. Here are the suggested ingredients for this easy vegan sushi recipe:

For the rolls:

  • Sushi rice – First off, you need to use short grain sushi rice. This is sticky so it will help keep your roll together. You could also use a black rice and cook it well, as that tends to be sticky too. It won’t work as well as regular white sushi rice but it’s a good alternative.
    • You can also make a 50/50 blend of sushi rice and cauliflower rice to add in extra vegetables.
  • Nori sheets– To hold the sushi roll together you need to use nori sheets, which are basically sheets of dried edible seaweed that wrap around the rice and fillings ingredients.
  • Filling ingredients – you can use a wide variety of fillings, see below for lots of ideas!

You also need to flavor the rice. The traditional ingredients to flavor sushi rice are:

Tools for Sushi

While many people say you need specific equipment to make your own vegan sushi, I have been successful many times without anything special. So these tools are not needed, but are fun to have if you want!

If you use the right ingredients, like sushi rice instead of regular rice, and you don’t overfill the rolls, you can get a nice tight result just using your hands.

However, if you’re feeling fancy, here is some fancy stuff you can use:

How to Prep Veggies for Sushi

When cutting your veggies for a vegetable sushi roll there are a few things to consider:

  • You want to make sure that you are using a very sharp knife to be able to make accurate cuts with ease.
  • Cut them into long thin strips. You can either cut matchstick like strips or keep them long like asparagus.
  • Leave the skin of veggies like cucumber for added texture and color.
  • Prepare the veggies in advance so they’re ready to go when it’s time to roll!

Dipping Sauce for Vegan Sushi

The other thing I love about making sushi at home is the variety of dips you can make! Anything goes, so get creative! Here are some classics and non traditional favorites:

Tips For Making Sushi With Kids

Making homemade vegan sushi can be a fun family affair, at least until the little one starts throwing the filling ingredients at his brothers. At that point, just drink some sake.

But before that happens, here are some fun ways to involved the kids:

  • Let everyone pick filling ideas they like.
  • Arrange all the filling options in bowls or piles so they are easy to grab.
  • Give each kid a nori sheet and help spread the rice over the top since that can be tough for little ones.
  • Give them each a bowl or basket and let them select the filling ingredients they want.
  • Have them arrange them on one end of the rice covered nori sheet
  • Help them roll it up by covering your hand with theirs to ensure it will be tight.
  • Give them dip choices so that they can enjoy their creations!

Instructions 

Base:

  • Mix vinegar, sugar and salt in a bowl and heat on the stove or the microwave until the sugar is dissolved.

  • Add the mixture to the cooked rice and mix well.

Fillings:

  • Make the marinated sweet potato and mushrooms by pouring the tamari over them and allowing them to marinate a bit while you prep the rest of the roll ingredients.

  • Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes until crisping on edges. You can also saute them in a pan until crisp and cooked through.

Build the sushi:

  • Build by spreading 1 cup of rice onto nori sheet.

  • On one end lay filling ingredients of choice in a thin line. You want between 2-4 pieces of each filling ingredient. Don’t use more than 4 or 5 fillings ingredients or it will get too big to roll.

  • Tightly roll and cut.

  • Serve with dipping sauces like Tamari (soy sauce for non gluten-free)

Notes

  • Sushi rice is what gets it to stick well, you can use black rice as a second alternative too. Brown rice will not stick as well, keep that in mind.
  • You can pick and choose the fillings based on what you want. Don’t use too many per roll or it will be overstuffed and break.
  • I made 4 rolls using the sweet potato, mushrooms, avocado, cucumber, carrot, and green onions. Serving size is 1 roll.
  • Nutrition facts are for sushi rolls only.
