So my first reaction when I saw Avocado + Peanut Sushi on the menu at a local Japanese restaurant was… hmmm, that sounds interesting… and obviously I ordered it. And obviously, I liked it.

This sushi is simple, which makes it a breeze to make at home, but sure doesn’t lack any flavor which makes this your new favorite sushi recipe wink.

If making sushi at home intimidates you (like it once did for me) don’t let it. The key is to spread the rice thin, don’t overstuff your rolls, and just keep practicing! The more you make, the easier it is. And this batch I didn’t even use any rolling mats or fancy sushi gear. This video will help you learn how to roll your sushi if you’re a visual learner like me 🙂

Avocado + Peanut Sushi with Peanut Maple Dipping Sauce

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Japanese
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 15 min
Total time: 30 min

Ingredients

  • 1 package nori sheets
  • 6 servings calrose rice (see your rice package to make enough for 6 servings)
  • peanuts
  • 2-3 avocados
  • peanut maple dipping sauce (see below)
  • sesame seeds (optional)

Peanut Maple Dipping Sauce

  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp liquid aminos/tamari sauce
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup water

Instructions

  1. Make the rice according to package directions. I make 6 servings worth of rice

    ** NOTE: I have found warm, sticky rice works the best for rolling. Place the rice in the freezer to cool down if it is still too hot to touch. I also have a bowl of water to keep my fingers wet while rolling to make it easier (since the rice is so sticky)

  2. Make the peanut maple dipping sauce by combining all the sauce ingredients together in your food processor/blender

  3. Slice your avocado into thin strips

  4. Once the rice is cool enough, spread a thin layer of rice over your nori sheet

  5. Place 2-3 strips of avocado on top of the rice, then add a line of peanuts (again not too many or it will be hard to roll)

  6. Roll your rolls and place in the fridge for about 10-15 minutes (makes it easier to cut

  7. Slice into 1-inch pieces, making sure you use a sharp knife

  8. Serve with peanut maple dipping sauce and garnish with sesame seeds if desired
