Growing up we used to watch a lot of anime, and as an adult I still love to watch these animated Japanese show. In these anime they present the most delicious and cute looking foods, including these rice balls, which are called onigiri, in the most appetising ways, many times scoffing them down like their the most delicious food on earth. Imagine my curiosity, especially as a foodie, I started craving these anime foods, I simple had to try them!…
To be honest i’ve never been a real sushi lover before i turned vegan, the thought of eating raw fish just never appealed to me. That was until about 6 months ago when i decided to give sushi another try (this time completely plant base of course) and i’ve been hooked ever since! The thing i love about sushi is how fun it is to make and eat, plus its simply delicious.
This week i want to share my recipe for delicious rainbow maki, cause we all want to taste the rainbow. Sushi is another one of those dishes that allows you to let your creativity flow and use your imagination. I mean you can basically fill it with whatever your heart desires.
Before i made my first attempt at sushi i felt very intimidated, i was under the impression that it would take a long and difficult process to make. This doesn’t mean its super easy cause sushi making is an art of its own, and although i’m an amateur i can still make a tasty sushi, and so can you!
Like usual this recipe is open to interpretations, so feel free to mix and match with the ingredients. If you don’t like bell pepper just leave it out, or are you feeling bold? why not add some pickles? you can really add whatever ingredient you love. I used different coloured vegetables because i’m a unicorn and wanted to create a “rainbow” sushi.
I also decide to add some deliciously marinaded tofu. I made my marinade from scratch, but feel free to use your favourite store bought marinade. When you are using my marinade you can also tweak the recipe according your own taste. If you don’t like the heat just leave out the sriracha, or maybe you just don’t have black salt, don’t worry, just skip it.
I hope you all will enjoy this recipe as much as i did, now invite some friends and make some sushi.
