I have to admit that by the time I tried sushi for the first time, I was a vegetarian. So while I’ve never had “real” sushi, I’ve tried my fair share of vegetarian sushi. From cucumber rolls to avocado rolls, I’ve been surprised at how many tasty vegan options are there are in the world of sushi!

I thought it would be fun to combine all of those tasty flavors into one recipe. Since I wanted to keep this one as simple as possible, we’re piling everything into a bowl instead of spending any time rolling sushi. (Alex and I did make “real” sushi for a date night, and it was so fun but definitely time-consuming!) So, if you want an easy meal that has all the best sushi flavors without any of the hassle, try these vegetarian sushi bowls! If you enjoy this recipe, be sure to try my vegan poke bowls, too!

Ingredients & Subsittutions

I’ll admit that the ingredients list for this recipe is a bit longer than my typical recipes, but this recipe is essentially made of three parts: rice, tofu, and toppings. You can mix and match a lot of these ingredients. The sushi rice comes together quickly, especially if you have a rice cooker. The tofu is also simple to make but if you don’t want to make tofu, you can swap it out for cooked edamame.

As for the toppings, I went with a combination of carrots, cucumber, and avocado. The veggies add a nice color and crunch, while the avocado adds a rich and creamy texture.

To top everything off, I made a simple sauce made with mayonnaise and sriracha. You can skip this if that’s not your thing, but I thought it was a fun addition. You can use vegan mayo if you prefer to keep this recipe plant-based.
