Raw… rice-less sushi!

Wow… I just tested out an AMAZING recipe – inspired by this fabulous post.. 
PS if you don’t already read this blog, it’s fantastic, I highly recommend it!!

Introducing RAW… rice-less sushi!
First off I soaked a bunch of sesame seeds for about 3 hours.
Then blended them together with some soya sauce and lemon juice. Until a rice consistency.

Chopped up my veggies
Award for ugliest veggies in blog land!!

Spread out sesame seed mixture on Nori
Layer with above veggies!

My sushi is NEVER complete without some spicy mayo!
Not raw, but whatever!! :)   Mix these two together!

Cut up and serve!
I didn’t end up taking great pictures, because I just wanted to eat it soooooo bad!! :)

Let me know if you try this (I highly recommend you do)

Dave and I are heading off to a Wilco concert, so you won’t be hearing from me for a few days!

Don’t forget about the GIVEAWAY – I will be drawing it when I get home!! 
There are also some amazing responses, so if you need inspiration please check it out!

  1. Yum! Look great! I'm writing what the last person commented... weird! haha! Great minds think alike... or your pictures of the raw sushi just have that effect on people!

  2. Cool recipe - I have never had sushi without rice before! Looks good!

  3. What an interesting sushi method! Looks delish!

  4. I have tried making sushi a few times and while it always tastes good it NEVER looks as pretty as yours does!

  5. Jess you did an awesome job on this one!!!!!
    I have never tried my hand at sushi, the only rawish foodie who hasnt I surmise and you inspire me to try it b/c honestly, you made it look so easy and good! Love the spicy dipping sauce. I just posted a link for my peanut sauce today which is super easy and good too w/ this type of food.

    I have also seen people do cauliflower minced in the food proc for sushi rice too.

    Great work girl!!!!

  6. That sushi looks mighty yummy Jessica!!

    How go the wedding plans? :o)

  7. Wow, I have been wanting to make sushi for SO long and this looks amazing!

  8. Looks SO yummy! I have not had sushi in months, because basically I can't right now unless they are california rolls and I have never tried my hand at making it either! Maybe I will have to get a little more daring!

  9. wow nice work! I've been wanting to make my own sushi and this seems like a great way to start!

  10. i'm not really a mayo person but for some reason i do like it on sushi! go figure.

  13. That sushi looks awesome! I just had some tonight and I'm still craving it. One day I would like to attempt sushi again but my rolls always seem to be a fail. Maybe I'll try tomorrow..

  14. Darling YOU WON! OMGoodness, so exciting. Can you email me your address so I can forward it onto Kate from Living Raw Australia Magazine. I am so happy for you. Also need your address for the other thing too. Oh and I am almost done with your video :) Also that SUSHI looks amazing, and that blog you have sent us too. Thanks for the suggestion :)

  15. So totally not the ugliest veggies in blogland. More like adorably ugly, like a pug or a sharpei.

    As you know, these rolls inspired me!
