Sushi is a food that has been widely consumed by the public because of its distinctive taste and presentation process that is commensurate with its quality. However, can you eat sushi as a vegan?
There are plenty of vegan sushi options for people who prefer not to eat animal products.
Once you start combining ingredients, it’s easy to make delicious sushi rolls that are sure to please! Here are some ideas for filling sushi rolls:
1. Pickled Cucumber: When coupled with other pickled vegetables, pickled cucumber can be used to create pickled rolls that are a full-fledged vegetable sushi roll.
2. Daikon or radish: Carrots, avocado, and radish or daikon are used to make vegetable daikon buns.
3. Fried tofu: For a flavorful combination, add spicy Japanese mayonnaise or sriracha sauce to fried tofu.
4. Baked eggplant: The brown rice, onion, and ginger should all be served together (I have this whole article on Japanese eggplant if you want to learn more).
5. Fried or scrambled eggs: Tamago eggs are scrambled eggs wrapped in rice and seaweed to resemble sushi.
Try these dishes if you’re seeking for fresh ideas for filling your rolls:
- The bell pepper (roasted or fresh)
- Oregano Caramelized
- Arugula and lettuce
- Yam and sweet potato (“satsumaimo“)
- Cabbage (or kimchi)
- Cooked mushroom in a wok
The pistachio chocolate banana sushi is the strangest sushi, although it is more of a dessert than a main entrée
Consider substituting other items at a sushi restaurant, such as veggies for the shrimp tempura.
Although there are some less popular sushi choices that contain beef, pork, or chicken, the majority of fish-free sushi is vegan. Additionally, a lot of Western sushi utilizes mayo or cream cheese, both of which come from animals. Avocado, cucumber slices, or carrot sticks without sauce are suitable vegan options.
