Primal Sushi?

20120415-165702.jpg

I love Japanese food and completely adore sushi, but following a grain free diet means I’ve had to improvise massively in order to get my fix. Guess you could say this is the closest I’ll get to eating sushi now. This is a very yummy alternative to the white rice variety I have to say, and of course you can use any fillings you want… the possibilities are endless…

Ingredients for 12 pieces of mock-maki:

50g broccoli florets
50g cauliflower florets
Tbsp mayonnaise
2 pieces of seaweed nori – I like this
4 long strips of cucumber
Half a ripe avocado
Lashings of smoked salmon
Tamari, wasabi & freshly grated ginger to serve

Method:

– steam the broccoli and cauliflower for 8-10 mins until they are fork mashable

– once they have cooled down mash them up with the mayonnaise and avocado, and combine well

– take your sushi mat and put a sheet of nori on top, dip your fingers into a bowl of water and moisten the nori

– spread half the mixture over the nori, leaving a centimetre gap around the edges

– put an inch of smoked salmon to the left side of the nori all the way down, and top with cucumber

– roll up the nori very tightly from left to right

– cut into six with a very sharp knife and repeat

– serve with tamari, wasabi and freshly grated ginger
