French Vegan Sushi Roll Recipe. We all need a mental break during the day. So I thought it would be nice to show you how the chef from the beautiful La Reserve Hotel in Saint Tropez, France prepares a vegan sushi roll. There’s also a vegan sushi recipe below.
- bamboo rolling mat is needed
- short-grain Japanese rice
- rice vinegar
- nori sheets
- firm tofu
- soy sauce
- sesame seeds
How to prepare:
STEP 1: Rinse the sushi rice in a fine mesh colander under cold water.
STEP 2: Either cook the rice in your Instant Pot or cook it on the stove top. If you are using an Instant Pot use the rice setting (low pressure for 12 minutes). Allow the pressure to release naturally. The rice should be tender and the water should be completely absorbed. If you are cooking it on the stove top, bring the rice with the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook for 20 minutes. I usually prefer to make sushi rice in my Instant Pot.
STEP 3: Combine the rice vinegar, the sugar, and the salt in a small bowl. Add the cooked rice to a large bowl and stir in the vinegar sugar mixture until well combined. Let it cool down. Cover the bowl of rice with a damp napkin or kitchen cloth until it’s ready to use.
STEP 4: In the meanwhile, cut the cucumber, the carrots, the avocado, and the tofu in thin strips. Heat some oil in a flat pan and cook the tofu strips for about 4 minutes on high heat until crispy. Add a tablespoon of soy sauce while cooking.
