Vegan Sushi Bowl with Adzuki Beans

Adzuki beans don’t getthe love they deserve. In this vegan sushi bowl recipe, they bring the protein to the table.

Sushi bowls are a great alternative to more labor-intensive sushi rolls. I highly recommend this sushi bowl for your next weeknight sushi craving. The adzuki beansbring a lovely texture and a protein punch to this dish.

The recipe below calls for “seaweed snacks.” Parents of young children are probably familiar with these crunchy, roasted seaweed treats. They’re just roasted seaweed seasoned with sea salt and sometimes other flavors, like wasabi or teriyaki sauce.

I like to use seaweed snacks in my sushi bowls, because you can buy a smaller package, which is exactly the amount you need to three to four sushi bowls. A two serving package of seaweed snackscosts about $1-$150, versus a standard package of 10 nori sheetsthat goes for around $7. If you can’t find seaweed snacks, you can use a sheetof sushi nori. Just slice one sheet into small strips.

Adzuki beans don't get the love they deserve. In this vegan sushi bowl recipe, they bring the protein to the table.

This vegan sushi bowl recipe starts with a mix of brown susni rice and adzuki beans, then pileson a mix of raw and cooked ingredients for a beautiful, satisfying bowl of goodness.
