Vegan Sushi

By now autumn’s colours have changed the views of our cities. Why not enjoy a little piece of summer still, and what better time than during an aperitivo? And how about an elegant, delicious finger food that features Asian flavours? The word “sushi” means “sour” and refers to the different preparations of rice with either nori seaweed rolled outside (futomaki), or rolls with the nori seaweed inside (uramaki) and many others, filled with either vegetables, fish, or sauces. While raw fish is the most common filling, the rolls can be filled with a wide variety of ingredients. Today we propose a light and vegan version. The steps are the same of traditional sushi, the only change is the ingredients. We are sure you will find this recipe to be delicious and easy to make.


  • 2 sheets nori seaweed
  • 400 grams basmati or brown rice, boiled
