Raw Parsnip Sushi Rolls

I’m turning Japanese 

I think I’m turning Japanese 

I really think so…


Loving sushi and going vegan is a bit of a hard bite to swallow, so after much resistance, I have come up with my raw vegan alternative! Raw Parsnip Sushi!

While I must admit that I have been interested in making my own sushi for awhile, I have always been intimated by the sushi rolling process. There was the special bamboo rolling mat, the “special” sushi cutting knife and then there was the actual process of combining together vegetables and rice into a perfect roll only using seaweed… needless to say I was convinced that you must have some sort of Japanese gene to be able to do this. But after many pep talks and the banality of the same lunch recipes, I got up the guts to do this thing. With no bamboo mat, no special knife and only my two hands, I made raw parsnip sushi successfully! And guess what? It rocked!

So get the courage, get creative, take some chances, have some fun, and create some sushi that EVERYONE at the office is bound to be both impressed and jealous by… even if it doesn’t contain fish.
