gluten free vegan sushi roll recipe | lazy susan – april 2012

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
  • 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.
  • Take about 3/4 cup of rice and drizzle with sesame oil and about a 1/2 tbsp sesame seeds and mix in
  • Gently flatten the rice on one side of your nori paper and carefully flip over
  • start piling on your favorite ingredients down the middle.
  • squeeze lemon over all ingredients.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • sprinkle with sesame seeds
  • 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

  • spring asparagus soup. » sunny vegan - April 2, 2012 - 6:33 am

    [...] for the grilled asparagus 3 pounds asparagus ( trimmed and cleaned) 2 tablespoons olive oil salt pepper continued for the soup 2 cups vegetable broth ( low sodium) divided medium yellow onion – diced 2 tablespoons earth balance 2 tablespoons flour 3/4 cup soy milk1 teaspoon salt fresh ground pepper to taste 2 teaspoons lemon juice 2 tablespoons tofutti sour supreme (optional) Method: on a pre-heated grill or grill pan, grill asparagus until tender ( approximately 10-12 minutes) turning spears until all sides are lightly browned. cut asparagus into 2 inch pieces reserving a few tips for garnish. simmer onion in 1 cup broth for 3-4 min, add asparagus and simmer another 4 mintues. puree vegetable in blender or food processor until mostly smooth and set aside. in saucepan, melt earth balance and sprinkle in flour while stirring just until combined. add remaining 1 cup veg broth and then vegetable puree. simmer 5 minutes then whisk in soy milk, sour supreme and lemon juice. garnish with grilled asparagus spears and serve immediately. Tips and tricks ~ snap fresh asparagus spears towards the bottom instead of cutting them, they break at their natural tender spot with a vegetable peeler, peel the bottom 1/2 of the stalks for more even cooking time and tender spears the sour supreme is totally optional, but it gives the soup a lighter and creamier texture when blending or pureeing the onion and asparagus, I prefer mine chunkier and not like baby food ~ be sure to taste and adjust the texture to your preference if you use a low sodium or regular sodium broth, adjust salt accordingly!
