This vegan sushi recipe will transform how you think about sushi. Instead of fish, it contains veggies wrapped in nori and cauliflower rice.



Sushi Rice:

  • 1 large head of cauliflower (makes about 6 cups cauliflower rice)
  • ¼ cup almonds
  • 1 tablespoon vegan honey
  • A dash of Himalayan salt


  • 8 sheets of nori
  • 1 cucumber, julienned
  • 1 carrot, peeled and washed, julienned
  • 4 shiitake mushrooms, washed and thinly sliced
  • 4 green onions, washed and chopped
  • 1 avocado, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1½ cup alfalfa sprouts


  • Liquid Aminos


  1. Place the cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until rice consistency.
  2. In a large bowl, add cauliflower rice and pat with a paper towel thoroughly to remove moisture. Set aside.
  3. Add almonds to food processor and pulse until finely chopped.
  4. Add almonds to cauliflower rice and add bee-free honey and salt, mixing until well-combined.
  5. Place a sheet of nori on a sushi rolling mat or flat surface, add ½ cup of cauliflower rice leaving about an inch around the edges, add filling ingredients.
  6. Using your hands, fold the nori up and over the filling and roll tightly, wetting the top edge of the nori with a little water to seal it.
  7. Cut the roll into little pieces wiping your knife with a damp towel between cuts so it doesn’t stick to the roll.
  8. Dip in Liquid Aminos.


  • If you aren’t vegan, you can use regular honey in place of the bee-free honey if you choose.
  • In place of nori, other seaweeds also can work, such as kelp, wakame or kombu.
