Southwestern Sushi


Sushi Rolls

3 raw vegan nori sheets

1/4 cup nutritional yeast
2 cups raw cauliflower
1 cup spinach
1/2 cup celery cut into matchstick size slices
1 avocado
1/2 cup shredded carrot
1 cup diced button or crimini mushrooms
1/2 cup sprouted raw sunflower seeds
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp chipotle chili powder

Dipping Sauce

1 cup of avocado
2 Tbsp lime juice
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp pink salt
1/8 tsp chipotle chili powder
2 Tbsp water


In a food processor fitted with "S" blade, pulse cauliflower, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, chipotle chili powder, and sunflower seeds until a pate consistency is achieved. On each nori sheet, spread some of the cauliflower pate and then add celery sticks, shredded carrot, avocado slices, and mushrooms, then roll up each nori sheet into a long tub. You can seal the tube by adding a little lemon juice to the edge of the nori sheet and then folding it over; it will stick to itself that way. Repeat with each nori sheet. Then cut up each sushi roll into five pieces.

In a bowl, use a fork to mash up dipping sauce ingredients until a sauce is created, as pictured.
