No Cook Friday: Raw Vegan Sushi Rolls

Happy Friday! I hope you had a fantastic week and are looking forward to the weekend :) 

In the spirit of Social Friday and to everyone tired on slaving over  a hot stove to cook some yummy food, I bring you this recipe for Raw vegan sushi rolls. I must confess it is not my own recipe, but I have made it and it is delicious! Additionally, is a bit selfish on my part to favor sushi for today's post since I am currently experiencing a sushi craving, paired with a nice glass of Italian  raspberry soda. 

 Please do not think I am asking you to concoct some sushi with raw fish or anything of the likes, instead I am opting for an energy friendly and time saving recipe.  

Raw Vegan Sushi Rolls (this will make a "pate" textured paste)
  • 2c. Sunflower seeds
  • 1c. Pine nuts
  • 5 stalks of celery
  • 3 Tsp Red Onion
  • 5 Tbl. Lemon juice
  • 2 Tbl. kelp powder
  • 3 green onions sliced thin
  • 2 tsp. Sesame seeds (mixed black and white is nice).
  • 1 sheet nori soaked and chopped
  • 1 1/2 - 2 tsp. Celtic salt

Blend all of the ingredients well in food processor. Stop occasionally and stir, use the pulse setting to be sure you do not over mix. Should be sticky but not oily.

For the sushi

  • 2 peeled and quarter cut cucumbers
  • 1 - 2 peeled and quarter cut avocado
  • 1 carrot cut in matchsticks
  • 5 sheets of nori
  • Sprouts (optional)
  • Nama Shoyu Soy Sauce


  • Sushi matt
  • Blender / food processor
  • Bowls (one for water, one for pate)
  • Chef knife

On a nori sheet spoon 2 tbl. of pate, spread evenly. Place cucumber, avocado, and carrots across the long side of nori sheet. Place sprouts on top. Carefully roll the nori into a tight roll and seal with a bit of water. Cut with a sharp knife on the diagonal and serve with Nama Shoyu Soy Sauce.

Happy Cooking!!!
