I've been ultra inspired by the whole cauliflower rice craze. Below is one of my new all-time favorite recipes in honor or pride month.

3/4 a head of cauliflower (I used purple here, but any color works!)
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 tsp coconut aminos
4 nori sheets
1 large bell pepper, sliced thin
3 carrots, sliced matchstick
2 avocados
1 cup sprouts

bamboo sushi rolling mat


  1. Cut the cauliflower into small florets, then pulse in a food processor until the pieces are the size of couscous (you should have about 2 cups).
  2. Steam the riced cauliflower over boiling water for 5 minutes and cool.
  3. Transfer cauliflower rice to a bowl, add in rice vinegar, sesame oil, and coconut aminos and mix until well combined.
  4. To make a roll, lay nori sheet on top of rolling mat. Spoon 1/2 cup cauliflower rice on nori and spread evenly into a rectangle, leaving a one-inch  space at one end without cauliflower.
  5. Place 1/4 of the filling in a row on the end of the nori where the cauliflower rice comes to the edge.
  6. Roll the sushi using the bamboo mat as if you’re rolling up a sleeping bag tightly, starting with the side with all the fillings.
  7. When you get to the end, remove the mat, and slice the roll using a sharp knife into bite sized pieces.
  8. Repeat until you finish your filling.
  9. Enjoy!
