Servings: 3 servings of Keto sushi (5 rolls) 

Ingredients: 

  • 16 oz. Cauliflower
  • 6 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1-2 tbsp. Rice Vinegar (unseasoned)
  • 1 tbsp. Soy Sauce (or coconut aminos)
  • 5 sheets Nori
  • 1 6-inch Cucumber
  • ½ medium avocado
  • 5 oz. smoked salmon (or any seafood) 

Method: 

  1. Using a food processor, rice the cauliflower into rice-sized pieces by pulsing. Do in smaller batches to ensure consistency.
  2. Slice the cucumber on each end, then place the cucumber upright and slice off each side. Get rid of the middle and slice about 2 side pieces into small strips. Set aside in the fridge.
  3. In a very hot pan, add cauliflower rice and cook. Season with soy sauce as the cooking process happens, about 1 tbsp.
  4. Once the cauliflower is finished up and dried out some, add to a bowl with cream cheese and rice vinegar (1-2 tbsp. depending on how seasoned you want it to taste). Mix together well and set in the fridge until cool.
  5. Once the rice mixture is cooled, slice 1/2 an avocado into small strips.
  6. Put a Nori sheet down on a bamboo roller covered with saran wrap (this helps with sticking). Spread some of the cauliflower rice mixture over the Nori sheet, leaving about 3/4 inches of space at the top. Make sure this is quite a thin layer.
  7. Place all of the filling items into the sushi roll, layering whichever flavors you want.
  8. Roll sushi tightly using bamboo.
  9. Serve and enjoy! Feel free to pair with pickled ginger, wasabi, or a healthy spicy mayo!
