- 1 medium-sized cauliflower head, riced (about 4 cups) (907 g)
- 4 nori seaweed sheets
- 1 ripe mango, thinly sliced
- 1 ripe avocado, thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar (15 ml)
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce (15 ml)
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil (5 ml)
- Optional toppings: sesame seeds, sliced green onions
- Start by preparing the cauliflower rice. Cut the cauliflower into florets and pulse them in a food processor until they resemble rice grains.
- Transfer the cauliflower rice to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes, or until the cauliflower is tender. Let it cool for a few minutes.
- In a small bowl, mix together the rice vinegar, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Pour this mixture over the cauliflower rice and stir until well combined.
- Lay a nori sheet on a bamboo sushi mat or a clean kitchen towel. Spread about 1 cup of cauliflower rice evenly over the nori, leaving a small border at the top.
- Arrange a few slices of mango and avocado in a line across the center of the cauliflower rice.
- Using the sushi mat or towel, tightly roll the nori sheet into a sushi roll. Wet the top border with a bit of water to seal the roll.
- Repeat the process with the remaining nori sheets and fillings.
- Once all the rolls are assembled, use a sharp knife to slice each roll into bite-sized pieces.
- Serve the cauliflower rice sushi rolls with soy sauce for dipping and sprinkle with optional toppings like sesame seeds and sliced green onions.
These cauliflower rice sushi rolls are perfect for a light lunch, snack, or even as a party appetizer. Serve them with pickled ginger, wasabi, and soy sauce on the side for an authentic sushi experience. They are also a great addition to a gluten-free meal plan or for those looking to incorporate more vegetables into their diet. Enjoy them on a warm summer day or bring them to a potluck or picnic for a refreshing and healthy option.
