Homemade Vegan Sushi
Sriracha Baked Tofu:
1 block of extra firm organic tofu
2 tbsp Sriracha
Sushi Rice:
2 cups sushi rice
3 tbsp white rice vinegar
3 tbsp agave
3/4 tsp kosher salt
1 Avocado, 2 mini cucumbers, 1 cup red cabbage, 2 carrots, and whatever other kinds of veggies you like, cut into thin strips
Nori sheets for rolling
Soy sauce for dipping

Step One: Make the Sushi Rice
Cook the sushi rice according to package directions. Once cooked, add the vinegar, agave, and salt and let it cool.

Step Two: Make the Sriracha Tofu
Press the execs water of the tofu. Pat very dry and cut into strips. Coast generously with 2 tbsp of Sriracha, save the last tbsp for later.

Bake on a lined baking sheet at 400 degrees for 15 minutes until firmer and the edges are slightly caramelized.

At the last minute of cooking, add the remaining 1 tbsp of Sriracha and pop in the oven for 1-2 minutes. Let cool completely before rolling into sushi.

Step 3: Cut the veggies and avocado

Step Four: Assemble the Sushi

To assemble, place nori shiny side down. Add a thin layer of cooled rice and press + spread it out using wet hands to prevent sticking.

Then line up desired veggies and tofu on the top third of the sheet. Tip: sometimes I drizzle with sesame oil and/or a squeeze of lemon juice here for extra flavor! Then roll tightly, pressing down evenly as you roll.

Slice with a serrated knife, serve with soy sauce, and enjoy!

Tip: Meal prep this 2-3 days in advance for easy lunches or a nice snack to come home to after a long day!
