This was my first foray into vegan Sushi and well if i’m not kicking myself for not having tried sooner! Simple, quick and fresh- how good sushi should be. Although i would recommend investing in a Bamboo rolling mat and sharpening your finest knife. Only half of my rolls were presentable enough to photograph, the other half mushed onto the plate, i gladly took one for the team here! I went with two fillings: the first- cucumber, mint, ginger and spring onion, the second- horseradish, avocado, radish and wild garlic. I served our sushi with a sesame dipping sauce and a simple side of Soba noodles and Crispy “Seaweed” (roasted Kale).
