Sushi

     IMG_0054IMG_0050This is by far the thing I have missed since I’ve been a vegan.  I tried making sushi a couple years ago but I could never get the rice down. If you follow the recipe bellow the rice with come out sticky which is want you need to make awesome sauce sushi.  After you get down making the rice, then making the sushi is the easy part.  Place the veggies you like on the seaweed and enjoy. I used cucumber, vegan shrimp, avocado, and carrots.  You can also use asparagus, mushrooms, radishes, and pretty much any vegetable you like. -Alex

  • Cucumber
  • Vegan Shrimp

Cut up all veggies in ¼” in width and as long as the veggie is long.  Cut vegan shrimp the same way and put on a pan with a little olive oil and sesame seeds. Put on 300 F for about 10mins.

Put rice down on sushi roller and then seaweed. Place veggies and shrimp on the seaweed and role on the bamboo sheet. Cut sushi about 1″ in hight and serve with wasabi, ginger and duck sauce and enjoy.

Fish N’ Chips

     IMG_0032

     For the longest time I was a pescetarian, so when I became a vegan I missed seafood. I had classical british Fish N’ Chips in England and wanted to create it myself .  A couple months ago I made it with tofu, which is good but with eggplant, it tastes really close to fish. Which I miss but not killing my friends, “Fish are friends not food!”-Bruce the Shark. This recipe is the closest to seafood I could ever get.
