  • Hanging out with this crazy (handsome) man!
Oh man.. this guy! I love him!

Oh man.. this guy!

  • Enjoying seaweed brown rice cakes with homemade seitan and avocado!
Rice cakes can get a bad rap sometimes but I enjoy the brown rice cakes especially because they don't bother my stomach like some carbs tend to do!!

Here’s the recipe:

Vegan Sushi Salad with a Tangy Tahini Dressing

Serves 1

For the salad:

  • 1 carrot or 6 baby carrots, grated
  • 1/2 zuchinni, julienned
  • 1 serving of tempeh, grated
  • ~2 TB of brown rice
  • 1/2 sheet or nori, torn into little pieces

For the dressing:

  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1.5 to 2 tsp of tahini
  • 2 tsp nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp miso

Toppings (optional but oh so tasty!)

  • scoop of sauerkraut
  • 1/4 avocado, cubed
  • more tahini

1.  Combine all the ingredients for dressing in a small bowl.

2.  Combine all ingredients for the salad.  Add the dressing.  Add the toppings if using!

Note:  I like this salad cold (so yummy in this summer heat!) including the tempeh and rice, but you can serve it warm if you prefer!

All mixed up!

All mixed up!
