Quinoa Sushi Roll

An easy and delicious alternative to your typical sushi roll!

Serves: 2 - Preparation time: 30 minutes


1 cup dry quinoa

2 cups water or veggie broth

1 tablespoon Soy Garden spread (or other vegan buttery spread)

4 sheets nori

1 avocado

toasted sesame seeds or Gomasio (sesame salt)

1 teaspoon salt 


Start by toasting the quinoa in a dry pan until it achieves a light golden color.  Then rinse the quinoa in a strainer until the water runs clear.  Cook the quinoa in 2 cups or water (or veggie broth for additional flavor.) 

While the quinoa is cooking, slice up the avocado into strips.  After the quinoa is done (approximately 15 minutes total cook time) stir in the Soy Garden spread and salt.  Let cool to room temperature.  It helps to transfer the quinoa to a large bowl to speed the cooling time. 

If you have a bamboo sushi mat this will come in handy but is not totally necessary.  Lay a sheet of nori on the mat if you have one (if not just lay it flat on the counter) and place 1/4 of the quinoa along the edge or the nori closest to you.  Lay the avocado next to the quinoa and sprinkle with sesame seeds or gomasio.  Start rolling up the nori at the edge closest to you, and roll tightly!  Just before you finish rolling dampen the edge with water to seal the roll.  Slice with a serrated knife and enjoy! 

Note:  You can add any other veggie fillings to this roll that you desire.  The main idea is to use the quinoa in place of the rice, and avocado is essential to amazing sushi!
