As you might have surmised from some previous posts, I’m totally sold on cauliflower rice. Whether you’re doing the low-carb thing, living paleo, avoiding grains for any reason, or just plain packing more vegetables into your diet at every given opportunity, cauliflower rice is a great option that can be used just about anywhere rice can. I realized just the other day, though, that one common rice context place I had never tried using it was in SUSHI – one of my favorite indulgences. Yes, sometimes I can splurge and have the real deal, but it’s also nice to have an alternative that allows you to hit that flavor profile without actually going off-program (whatever program that might be for you).
I was really pleased with how my informal, very basic maki rolls came out! I added a little rice vinegar and honey to be a little closer to the flavor of sushi rice. You can use any filling you like, of course; here I just used a little avocado, carrot and cucumber for a veggie roll, but by all means, add some fresh salmon or ahi if you’ve got it!
