RECIPE: Vegan Chirashizushi (Rice Bowl)

Chirashizushi, or chirashi sushi, translates to “scattered sushi” and is often served on special occasions in Japan including New Year’s Day. It’s typically made with a bowl of sushi rice topped with sashimi but variations include different types of proteins such as tofu and any combination of fresh seasonal vegetables. 

Servings: 2


Ingredients

  • 230g cooked rice
  • 10g (⅓ package) Vegan Sushi Mix
  • 50ml water
  • ½ tbsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp soy sauce*

Vinegar for sushi rice

  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt 

Optional additional toppings

  • Shredded nori (seaweed), thinly sliced red peppers, snap peas, etc.

Instructions 

  1. Soak the contents of Vegan Sushi Mix in a pot of 150-200ml water for about 5 mins. Remove from the water and squeeze to remove any excess water. Be sure to save 50ml of the water. 
  2. Combine the 50ml of water from step 1 and the squeezed vegan sushi mix with the sugar, salt and soy sauce. Simmer on low heat until all the liquid has been absorbed.
  3. Separately, combine the vinegar, sugar and salt and mix into the cooked rice. Drain the seasoned Vegan Sushi Mix from step 2 and mix into the rice. 
  4. Split into two rice bowls and top with additional toppings if desired.
