Black Rice Sushi

4.30 from 4 votes

Black Rice Sushi is a very healthy and vegan version of the Japanese delicacy. Made with a filling of tofu, avocado, carrot and cucumber, it is low on calories as well as quite filling due to the black rice. This is one recipe that can easily be made a part of one's lunchbox. I am skipping the Nori sheets as I want to keep it completely vegan.
