Recipe Directions

Peel the ginger and cut it into very thin pieces. Marinate in one part agave and one part vinegar for no less than 3 hours (the longer, the better.)
Mix 1/2 cup agave with 3 cups hemp seeds until distributed evenly throughout. This will be your "sticky rice." Add more agave if necessary.
Lay out a nori sheet shiny side down and spread about 1/4 of the hemp "rice" you've made evenly across the sheet. Leave about 2 centimeters uncovered at the bottom edge.
Cut half an avocado into long pieces and lay them out horizontally across the middle. Add strips of any other fillings you want. Be creative!
If you do not have a sushi mat (I don't), start from the top and carefully roll the nori tightly with your hands. Wet your fingers and apply a small amount water to the edge you left blank. This will allow you to seal your roll. Repeat this process until you have 4 rolls made. Then cut them up into 6 pieces each, and serve with wasabi/horseradish, ginger, and nama shoyu. : )

Alexa.'s Thoughts

Sushi has always been my favorite food pre-raw. Especially avocado sushi! So i was determined to recreate it in a familiar way. I have never seen hemp used in a raw vegan recipe as an alternative to rice (perhaps because it's quite expensive) but the taste and the appearance are wonderfully similar, and it's great for you! These could not have been more successful at satisfying my craving.

I would try a mix of apple cidar vinegar, miso and agave, put in food processor along with hemp seed... Or maybe just mix together until smooth, then put over the hemps seeds...

Hemp Seed Avocado Sushi

Great idea, with the agave it was way too sweet for me. I will try to figure out what to use instead to make the hemp seeds stick together. They are a great rice alternative!

I'm sorry you were disappointed with it. What exactly didn't you like about the taste combination? I think hemp seeds have a pretty neutral taste and make a much better rice substitute than other commonly used foods (cauliflower, jicama, parsnip, etc.)
As for being messy, I think this depends on how well you roll it. It shouldn't be any messier than sushi you would find anywhere else, as the concept is the same.

I was really excited to try this recipe, but was disappointed with the result.
Didn't like the taste of the hemp seeds with nori and very messy to eat.

Hi, do you have to soak the hemp seeds?
