Vegetarian Sushi in a Bowl

A couple of weeks ago I made these vegetarian Sushi Bowls for dinner one night and they were delicious! It was a pretty easy dinner, tasty and very filling and surely handles a sushi craving at home for the most part.


I did find this on the Happy Herbivore's website. I love this blog, it has some great unique and easy vegetarian recipes to enjoy. Since I try and give us one veg recipe a week, it's a nice resource for me.




Sushi Rice Bowl - Serves 2


2 cups cooked brown rice or shredded parsnips (raw option) (we used rice)


1/4 cup brown rice vinegar


2 tsp raw agave


hot sauce as desired



For the following, slice thinly, cube or chop into julienne strips:

1 large carrot

1 cucumber or zucchini

1 red bell pepper, seeded (omitted)

1 cup shiitake mushrooms

2 green onions

1 sheet of toasted or raw nori (shredded)

1/4 cup shredded daikon or radishes

1/4 cup sprouts (omitted)

freshly grated ginger or pickled ginger

4 oz lite extra firm tofu (drained and diced small)

1 avocado

1 tbsp sesame seeds - garnish (forgot!)

Directions:

1. chill servings bowls (place in fridge)

2. mix cooked rice with vinegar, agave and optional hot sauce in a bowl

3. if using parsnips, vinegar, sugar and hot sauce is optional

4. place covered, cooked rice or parsnips in the fridge to chill

5. prepare all ingredients, slicing the avocado last so it doesn’t brown before serving

6. toss rice or parsnips with other ingredients

7. garnish with sesame seeds

8. serve with miso dressing if desired (did not use dressing, just soy sauce was fine)

Great post and it looks good! We sometimes have this when we're too lazy to make maki or nigiri. Sometimes its called Chirashi-sushi :)
