Sushi is by far the most famous Japanese dish and arguably the most popular with the Japanese people themselves. It was originally prepared from vinegared rice and a combination of raw fish, vegetables or fruit, and typically enjoyed on special occasions and celebrations. These days sushi is widely available in a variety of different presentations, including our mouth-watering, rice-free, vegan version containing organic spirulina powder below.
Spirulina comes in a handy tablet or a highly soluble powder form – both are prepared from the unicellular freshwater algae that has been popular with indigenous tribes for centuries. Indeed, the Aztecs are believed to have given spirulina to their warriors to increase their physical strength and stamina. The organic spirulina powder used in this recipe is absolutely loaded with valuable nutrients, including fibre, protein, vitamins (such as vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, E and K), essential minerals (including iron, calcium and magnesium), trace minerals, beta-carotene, essential fatty acids, nucleic acids (both RNA and DNA), superoxide dismutase (SOD), polysaccharides and antioxidants. In addition to adding organic spirulina powder to your favourite savoury recipes and snacks, it can also be mixed directly into smoothies, shakes and juices for a quick blast of nutrients on the go.
For the sushi:
- 1 avocado
- 1/2 an organic red bell pepper
- 1/4 of an organic carrot
-1/4 of an organic courgette
- 1/2 a cup of alfalfa or bean sprouts
For the sauce:
- 3 tbsp. of nutritional yeast
- 1 tbsp. of organic mustard
- 1 tsp. of organic spirulina powder
- 2 tsp. of coconut aminos
- 1 tbsp. of freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 tbsp. of finely chopped fresh coriander
- A pinch of Himalayan pink salt
First prepare the sushi sauce by placing all of the sauce ingredients into a mixing bowl and mixing thoroughly into a rich paste. Next peel, de-stone and mash the avocado and cut the red pepper, carrot and courgette into thin strips. Now lay the nori sheets on a flat surface and pour the sauce onto the bottom half of each one. Next spread the mashed avocado onto the same area and top with the peppers, carrots, courgette and sprouts. Now carefully roll your nori sheet until you can no longer see the filling and dampen the edge to seal. Next lightly dampen the entire nori sheet before slicing into bite size sushi rolls. Keep back a little of the sushi sauce for dipping if desired. Delicious served with a large salad containing sea vegetables.
