Vegetarian Sushi is not just about good food, but also fun time together with group activities; Make Sushi with family, kids and friends at home or parties. Share the fun and joy of giving and promotes both physical and mental well being…
So let’s get started!
There are at least 3 types of Sushi Shapes. Let’s do the Oval and Round ones. California Rolled is easy too, just a matter of experimentation.
- Cute little Oval Shaped
- Elongated and cut up into Round and Short Shaped. (Sushi Bamboo Mat required)
- California Roll or Cone Shaped
- Fresh Carrots, Cucumber, Shitake, and/or Grey Oyster Mushroom, Colored Capsicum/pepper, Potatoes, and any other suitable vegetables.
- Water, Salt, Sugar and/or sesame oil.
- Vegetarian processed food such as vegetarian steak or burger, hard tofu or vegetarian mayonnaise if available. (Optional)
- Natural Traditional Soya Sauce
- Sushi Seaweed
- Japanese Rice
- Diced carrots, cucumber, Shitake and/or Grey Oyster Mushroom, colored capsicum/pepper
- Sliced cucumber
- Shred potatoes and mix with a quarter of a cup of water. A little salt/sugar and/or sesame oil are allowed as appropriate.
- Cut other vegetarian processed food such as vegetarian steak or burger and tofu into finger size. Those who are really health conscious may skip these.
- Cut up some Sushi Seaweed along the lines, or in strips about the width of half and quarters of a finger length
- Start cooking the rice in a rice cooker or immerse the rice with appropriate water amount in glassware for steaming till cooked for approximately 20 min.
- Add Vegetarian Oil into heated wok.. Start frying all ingredients (except sliced cucumber) for just a couple of minutes. Add the potatoes with water and start mixing to get a rich vegetable thick mixture.
- Stir or Deep Fry vegetarian processed food separately
Have Fun Making Sushi
- Soak the hands wet and grab a handful of rice (caution hot, so wait to cool first), make a fist and squeeze the rice a little to take the shape.
- Starts rolling a piece of the seaweed round the rice mound, with a little gap above so you can stuff the prepared ingredients on top. Just a dip of water to stitch up the seaweed.
- Or place a piece of vegetarian processed food on top and start tying across to attach it the rice mound like you would with a string. Spread a little mayonnaise to your liking.
- Place Whole Seaweed on Bamboo Mat, and place a balanced layer of rice across.
- Start putting ingredients, including cucumber, between the edges ( but not too close) before rolling up and squeeze a little to firm up.
- Start cutting with a wet, sharp knife into small pieces.
Dip in Soya Sauce, Enjoy Sushi and Yummy!
If you like to keep it really simple, just cook away mushroomsTruffle-Eating-Gu, mix it with vegetarian mayonnaise or marmite and make the sushi with hands - Simple and Tasty!!
I usually don’t take onions, garlic or wasabi. So my favorite dip is just the traditional natural Soya sauce. Do cook at least a cup of rice for each person; don’t spoil the fun with insufficient rice. Sushi uses more rice than ingredients, which can often end up much more than rice. These make tasty gifts for friends and parties, and spice up the social interaction fun -
Turn on the soft music & let’s make Sushi Together!
