Gluten free vegan sushi roll recipe

April already!  This year is just whizzing by. For those of you that are wondering what the heck is Lazy Susan?  It’s a group of fantastic photographers gone foodie. This month… vegan/vegetarian and since I will be rolling with this theme here on out I have decided to move my Lazy Suzan posts from my a boring photo blog over here to eat-swell. It just makes sense right? After this head on over to Shannon harrison’s blog for her Balsamic Veggie recipe.

Sushi rolls! I posted a photo the other day via instagram and one of my photo clients asked where the recipe came from. My reply was “my head” so I thought it would be a good one to share. Everybody that loves sushi will love doing this in the comfort of their own home. It’s delish and cost effective! I would go broke if I went to a sushi bar every time I had a craving for this. All the Avocado just really hits the spot. Ok, Here we go…


  • short grain brown rice;
  • nori;
  • avocado;
  • cilantro;
  • carrots;
  • cucumber;
  • sprouts;
  • green onion;
  • sesame seed;
  • gluten free tamari;
  • lemon;
  • siracha;
  • wasabi;
  • sesame oil.


  1. Soak your rice over night and it’s 2 cups of water for every one cup of rice and let it simmer for about 50 minutes. I like to cook extra to extend in though out the following days for other recipes.
  2. Take about 3/4 cup of rice and drizzle with sesame oil and about a 1/2 tbsp sesame seeds and mix in.
  3. Gently flatten the rice on one side of your nori paper and carefully flip over
  4. start piling on your favorite ingredients down the middle.
  5. squeeze lemon over all ingredients.
  6. Carefully pull side closested to you over all of the ingredients as tightly as you can. gently pulling toward you (think burrito) this can be tricky but with a little practice you will have it down in no time.
  7. with a serrated or very sharp knife cut in half and then continue toward the outside until you have 8 pieces.  Wipe the knife after every cut and wipe with water if needed.
  8. sprinkle with sesame seeds
  9. add a little dot of siracha if desired

For the dipping sauce:

  • 1/4 tsp powdered wasabi;
  • 1 Tbsp Tamari to taste;
  • drizzle of sesame oil;
  • squeeze of lemon.
