Friends, I am super excited about this post… a couple of firsts for me happening here: first time rolling sushi inside out and first time coloring my rice with Purple Sweet Potato Supercolor Powder from Suncore Foods! Side note: did y’all know about purple sweet potatoes? Like- I just discovered them last year… and that makes me a little salty because I’m a lover of all things purple, especially foods and I feel like I’ve been missing out!
Admittedly, I like the taste of spicy tuna sushi, but the thought of eating raw tuna, for me, kinda gives me the heebeegeebees. So I wanted to create a plant-based version that has a similar taste to a spicy tuna roll that doesn’t make my brain say “eww”. Now before I lose all you real spicy tuna roll lovers, hear me out.
Roasted sweet potatoes get smashed and combined with vegan mayo and chili sauce for a taste and texture that resembles spicy tuna. Kale gets massaged with sesame oil and liquid aminos (soy sauce) and then rolled in purple sweet potato rice covered nori sheets snuggled with avocado and then garnished with hemp seeds. Now go ahead, tell me your mouth isn’t watering…
