    grumblebee's Note:

    Have all the taste and texture of traditional maki sushi rolls but with way fewer carbs and no rice! This recipe utilizes vegetables in an interesting way in place of the sushi rice. I came up with this recipe as I love sushi but am cutting back on my carbohydrate intake. Sashimi was always an option, but sometimes you want more than just plain fish! Feel free to experiment with different fillings and combinations. The recipe below will provide 2 of each of the three versions of riceless sushi. However, the zucchini can be mixed with the carrots for a combo. The pureed cauliflower versions can also be kicked up with a hit of wasabi pureed in the mix. Have fun with this!

    Serves: 6


    sushi r ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Grate the carrots and zucchini but keep them separated. Mix the sesame oil, mirin and sesame seeds and drizzle 1/2 over the zucchini and 1/2 over the carrots. Toss until the veggies are coated. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Boil the cauliflower until very, very tender. Drain. Puree. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Place a sheet of nori on bamboo sushi roller mat or piece of plastic wrap. Place the grated carrot, zucchini, OR pureed cauliflower on about 1/2 of the nori sheet. Then lay out fillings of choice on top of the vegetables. Once filled, roll into a tube, seal edges with a bit of water and then slice each roll into 6 slices.
    4. 4
      Suggestions for combinations: Grated carrot w/ marinated shiitaki mushrooms, Grated zucchini and carrot w/ crab and avocado, Pureed cauliflower w/ salmon (I mix wasabi in with the cauliflower puree for extra flavour), Grated carrot w/ shrimps, zucchini, avocado and crab, Cauliflower puree w/ shiitaki mushroom and grated carrot, zucchini w/ smoked salmon and green onion.

      These came out quite good, although I think next time I won't cook the cauliflower quite as much so it's a bit firmer. I used avocado, kampyo, cucumber and carrot for the filling.
