What is better than regular sushi? Exactly colourful raw vegan sushi! Lately I have been looking back at some pictures from last years summer, which wasn’t a very good idea. I just couldn’t look at myself standing in a beautiful dress with the sun shining on my face. I could just feel the heat and wished that it was summer again. It is only getting colder here in the Netherlands and the only thing I wish for now is going outside in nature in my dress. However, there is nothing I can do to change the weather, but I can give myself a summer feeling by making some summer food! So I made colourful raw vegan sushi. What I love about these little sushi bites, is that they are very refreshing and light. I especially like having these in summer, as a side meal for a garden-party. So I made myself some of these sushi bites, put on my fleece jacket to get warm and pretended that I was sitting in the sun!
It is testweek, which means a lot of studying, but also very short days at school. What I love about that is that I can eat at home every day and get to come up with some delicious recipes! Today I made these delicous raw vegan grated carrot sushi and I had it with some sweet potato. It is great to have as a side meal or as a refreshing snack.
- 2 medium carrots
- 1 red cabbage leaf
- 1/2 red bell pepper
- 1/5 cucumber
- 1 nori sheet
Start by grating your carrots in a foodprocessor or with a cheese grater. Spread the grated carrots on the nori sheet. Now cut up your vegetables (red cabbage, red bell pepper and cucumber) and lay them a little from the middle of the nori sheet. Now roll the nori sheet and keep it in place with some water.
Take a very sharp knife and cut the sushi in pieces. Serve on a nice plate, take your chopsticks and enjoy!
I can not believe that this testweek is one of the last testweeks before my exams! Time is going fast, but I am so excited to start a new journey.
