Cauliflower Sushi

Alternative title for this may be: “Sushi for the talentless” – I am really not skilled with the nori sheets. But we all know it is the inside that counts, right? In this case, the inside is different sorts of gooey mash – cauliflower “rice”, sweet potato and avocado! It sure makes it easier to roll without having to consider the carrot- and cucumber sticks et cetera.
This recipe should make circa 3 rolls, but as it turns out my dear partner apparently snacks on nori sheets occasionally, there were only two left in the pantry… IMG_1903
For the cauliflower rice you will need:

  • ½ a cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • ½ tsp liquid sweetener (such as agave syrup)
  • a pinch of salt

Along with fillings of choice, I am using sweet potato and avocado, but one can of course use any ordinary (or unordinary)sushi fillings.
Steam the cauliflower for circa 6 minutes before placing it in the blender. Mix until it has reached a rice like consistency, then add the liquids to the rice. Let cool for at least 15-20 minutes, but best be it for a few hours.

For the sweet potato, I just boiled it and mashed it in the blender. The avocado is mixed with chili and lemon juice. As this is Sushi for the Talentless (or rather, by the talentless) I will not give you any advice on how to roll properly, I am fairly clueless myself. I would say, follow the instructions on the nori package of how to fold, or use something such as this guide.
