Quinoa Sushi


There are many reasons why sushi and summer just go together, not the least of which is that no oven is involved, you can prep it relatively quickly, and all the veggies available mean almost limitless options for filling. Inspired by Turntable Kitchen‘s Quinoa Sushi, I rolled up some combos reminiscent of summer nights in Santa Cruz singing Karaoke, sipping sake and scarfing sushi at Mobo or I Love Sushi.

  1. Cucumber, carrot & radish
  2. Avocado & cucumber
  3. Avocado, goat cheese, spicy cashews
  4. Fried sweet potato & chili mayo
  5. Roasted beet & sesame tofu
  6. Fried Egg
  7. Pickled ginger, mango & pineapple
