International Sushi Day 🍣

International Sushi Day is upon us and if you don't fancy going out for a meal, why not have a go at making this Japanese dish yourself at home?

Sushi is an incredibly versatile food, the base is vinegared rice and nori seaweed but what you decide to fill your sushi rolls with is completely up to you! Sushi is often served with pickled ginger, wasabi, and soy sauce.

First introduced to Japan thousands of years ago, sushi is now one of Japan’s most famous food exports and served all over the world. We've put together a list of some must-have, vegan-friendly sushi ingredients that you may already have at home!

Key Sushi Ingredients:
  • Sushi Rice
  • Nori Seaweed

If you're vegan and wondering what you could use as a meat / fish replacement, then we've got you covered. Check out our list of vegan protein alternatives below!

Sushi is so much simpler to make than it looks and is also a great way to get your children involved in the kitchen. Check out our other blog post here where you can find the ultimate sushi platter recipe.
