Recipe Directions

To make the rice, first process the cashews into a powdery consistency, then add the other ingredients except sesame seeds and pulse to combine. You should have a thick, sticky consistency. If you prefer a lower fat version, you may also add zucchini or cauliflower to the rice, but i prefer it without. Hand mix in sesame seeds. You are now ready to roll sushi. My fillings are just suggestions, feel free to fill your sushi with whatever suits you. Place a nori on a bamboo sushi roller. (It is possible to roll sushi without one of these, but they come out ugly, and the things only cost $2 anyway.) Spread your filling as thin as you can on the bottom half of the nori. Line your fillings in the center. Then roll the nori over the fillings, tucking the edge under carefully, and roll the mat around your roll. Moisten the edge with a bit of water to seal, and let it sit in your sushi roller for a moment to set.

To roll inside out sushi, wrap your bamboo roller in plastic wrap.Cover the top two thirds of your nori in your “rice,” and set the rice side down on the mat. place your fillings on the plain nori and roll up, using the mat. You may want to roll the whole thing in more sesame seeds, to keep it from being to sticky to pick up.

I like to arrange my fillings so a bit sticks out of the ends, and the make the first cut horizontal, the next diagonal, then horizontal, then diagonal, so the rolls are either at an angle or have fillings sticking out, for dramatic presentation.

Enjoy it!

The rice comes out so satisfying and starch like. This really works for me if I’m craving sushi stuff! Obviously, if there’s an ingredient here you don’t like, subsitute it or leave it out.

Wow these things truly rock!! One of my first raw recipes and what i love the most is that its so much easier and faster to make than fiddling about with sushi rice!

I added cauliflower avocado, wasabi paste (is this raw? I'm new..), ginger and pumpkin seeds to the rice mixture. Delish!

Thank you so much, I miss sushi terribly and have had no luck making it raw. I'll give it a try! The photo is beautiful, you've definitely got the technique down.
