Sushi is one of the world's most famous dishes of Japanese cuisine and the favorite food of many people. There are many varieties of sushi, but they generally consist of rolled snacks made from rice, seaweed, fish and vegetables. The sushi filling can be very varied and these makis and uramakis that I have prepared are filled with fruit and vegetables. The process of cooking and preparing rice for sushi is an art, therefore, it is very laborious, so I bring you a recipe for homemade vegan sushi a RecipesFree a little more simplified so that everyone can prepare it.

- 5 sheets of nori seaweed
- 1 cup of sushi rice
- 25 milliliters of rice vinegar
- 10 grams of sugar

- 2 pineapple slices
- 1 avocado
- 1 carrot
- 1 cup of water (240 milliliters)
- 15 grams of salt
- ½ green pepper
Steps to follow to make this recipe: 1
Wash the sushi rice in water by rubbing it with your hands in a strainer until the starch is removed. Changing the water several times until it runs clear or do it directly under the water tap. Then, put the rice in a saucepan and cover it with water (the same amount of water as rice).
Cook the rice with the lid on medium heat for 2 minutes, lower the heat and boil for another 12 minutes over low heat. We turn off the stove and let the rice rest with the lid on for another 15 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.
Make the "sushi-zu" or the rice dressing heating the rice vinegar a little and dissolving in it the sugar and salt. Let it cool and mix with the cooked rice.
Prepare the vegetables and fruit of the homemade vegan sushi by cutting it into julienne strips or long slices.
Place the bamboo mat on a flat surface and on top a piece of transparent film (for ease). Above place a sheet of nori seaweed, cover it with a layer of rice approximately half a centimeter thick, leaving the upper end free.
Place the sheets or sticks of fruit and vegetables along the bottom end of the seaweed. Choose the vegetarian sushi combinations that you like the most, these are the ones I have made: banana and pineapple maki; banana, pineapple and avocado maki and carrot, avocado and green pepper uramaki.
Roll it up carefully the sheet of the nori seaweed with the help of the mat, squeezing a little to make a compact roll and it does not fall apart. Brush with the top end with water and squeeze the roll so that the seaweed sticks.
To make the uramaki just change the order of the layers: first place the rice on the mat, on top the seaweed and the filling along the lower end.
Serve the homemade vegan sushis with soy sauce, a pinch of wasabi or marinated ginger.
