Sushi salad recipe

Friday July 12, 2019 - by

No time or too lazy to make sushi rolls, but still want the taste of sushi? No worry, this sushi salad recipe is a delicious outcome. Sushi always was our favorite meal. Since we only eat plant-based now, this salad is without fish. It really doesn’t matter, because you still can achieve the flavors of sushi.

This vegetarian sushi salad contains brown rice, lots of veggies, nori and a wasabi sauce. We always pack our recipes full with vegetables. For this salad I use cabbage, carrot, cucumber, avocado and bell pepper. All super healthy ingredients. Prepare the wasabi sauce and mix with the rice. Add the veggies and finish with avocado, sesame seeds and nori. Enjoy your vegetarian sushi bowl. No fish needed, I guarantee you.
