Raw vegan sushi is way more flavorful and nutritious than cooked! This recipe is rice-free, instead using a raw sundried tomato spread as the binding ingredient. These sushi rolls are packed with fresh veggies and amazing flavor!

Ingredients

* 1 Cucumber

* 3 large Carrots peeled

* 1 large ripe Avocado

* 5-6 Nori Roll Sheets

* Pickled Ginger

* Wasabi or Sriracha (optional, if you like spice)

* Sundried Tomato Spread (recipe on chef's main page)

* Sushi Rolling Mat

Instructions

1) Peel the cucumber and slice in half lengthwise and cut off the ends.

2) Using a large spoon, scoop out the soft seeds from the inside of cucumber.  Cut in half again and thinly slice.
3) Next take the peeled carrots and continue peeling the carrot to achieve long ribbons.
4) Slice the avocado in half and lengthwise into thin strips.

5) Now arrange all the ingredients in front of you to prepare the sushi rolling!
6) Spread the Sundried Tomato Spread on the nori roll and add the carrot ribbons on top.
7) Layer on the cucumber, avocado, pickled ginger and wasabi or Sriracha.
8) Carefully roll the nori roll using a Sushi Rolling Mat.  Tighten the roll with the mat often to keep it in perfect shape.
9) Using a sharp knife cut the sushi roll into sixths.

Guten Tag, I am Carla Aguas, the creator behind the Bee’s Knees Kitchen, the raw food blog aimed at discovering healthy, simple recipes to satisfy your sweet tooth and hungry belly! The Bee’s Knees Kitchen is a blog I started in February 2010 to chronicle my adventure into the raw food world.  My objective was to find healthy meals and desserts that use the same basic ingredients and were easy to prepare. As a Oregonian living in Germany and food addict, I wanted to be able to share my recipes with family back home and it blossomed from there.  I come from a family of foodies and I take my inspiration from foods I recall from my parents and from being raised in such a bountiful place as the Pacific Northwest. My raw food appeals to all of your sense without even realizing that you are being held to “raw” standards.  Fresh produce is continually my main inspiration, and I am persistently searching far and wide for desserts and meals to appease my varied palette.  Please enjoy my blog, create, comment and share a more nutritious way of eating that doesn’t sacrifice the flavor or beauty of what food should always be!
