Sushi Ideas Revisited
I recently used up the rest of my sushi rice with the intention of feasting with friends after frisbee :) Well as it turns out there were lots of other fun things to do that night, a birthday party, a block party, etc etc, so we decided to postpone yet another feast night. Which means of course, that I have to use up the sushi rice and eat all the sushi by myself. How sad (zing!).
Since I'm also in a phase of transition into a vegan diet, I wanted to use up what I had left of the eggs (and I finally did this morning when I made migas, mmmm) and other non-vegan ingredients in my fridge. So I made some combinations of sushi fillings that were both vegan and me-gan. For more detailed instructions on making sushi, check out my original sushi post from my successful first attempt.
egg omelet with cream cheese
carrot and tuna with mayo and wasabi
tofu and shitake mushroom
marinated and pan seared tofu and zucchini
bell peppers and zucchini
I liked the egg omelet and tuna the best (unfortunately they're not vegan), but I realized if I'm going to make vegan sushi, I'm going to have to do more with the marinating, or use some less conventional ingredients.
Ideas I was thinking of include:
What else would you use?
