Veggie Sushi is a quick and easy snack or meal. Of course it's only quick and easy when you buy it. I've attempted to make it at home a few times with some success but it usually ends up falling apart. So, why go through the trouble when you can just put all the ingredients in a bowl right from the start. This is a great dish to make when you have leftover rice and veggies in the fridge. Rice vinegar, wasabi, and Tamari bring all the ingredients together for that delicious Sushi taste.
*1 cup cooked brown rice
*1 cup purple cabbage, thinly sliced
*1 small carrot, shredded
*1/2 cucumber, cut into matchsticks
*1 small zucchini, cut into matchsticks
*6 grape tomatoes, sliced
*2 green onions, sliced
*1 cup steamed green beans or snap peas, cooled
*1/2 avocado, sliced
*4-6 fresh basil leaves, chopped
*1/2 sheet of Nori, torn into bite size pieces
*2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
*Wasabi paste, to taste
Mix rice vinegar and wasabi together and stir into rice. Start with a small amount of wasabi at first and taste. You can always add more.
Place rice and remaining ingredients in bowl and drizzle with Tamari.
Make extra and take for lunch the next day.
