Vegan Sushi

Vegan Sushi

Japanese finger food, sushi, has made a splash even in Italy, which seems to appreciate Oriental bittersweet taste and flavours.

In a world more and more focused on the psycho-physical wellness and on the need to protect the flora and fauna heritage, the market demand over vegetarian and vegan cuisine is moving at full sail.

Indeed, those who love rice seasoned with the priceless soy sauce and nori seaweed to keep the fragrance of flavours within it, cannot give up to claim a vegan version of their beloved sushi.

Raw Sushi

Sushi recipes that follow the rules of preserving raw materials are very appreciated among the raw food eaters. Hence the low temperature cooking of rice, well mixed with spices, can give life to true masterpiece of raw sushi.

In addition, here it is gunkan of nori seaweed which wrap raw mixed vegetables and vegetable caviar tartar, tasty beetroot salad, broad beans, ginger and buds, then fresh coriander sauce smartly dressed with coriander or soy beans.

Enjoy thin and tasty noodle rice, cooked following the “raw” method, put together with noodles of baby carrots and zucchini with a veil of flowers and a light dressing.

Those are only few of the options of new Raw sushi cuisine.

Tradition and Veganism

For those who choose a vegan classic approach, the view is even wider.

Therefore, the parade of delicious delicacies pleasant to watch at and to delight to the palate is really endless:

Uramaki, the classic roll of cooked and seasoned rice with a thin layer of nori seaweed that decors the interior part, filled with avocado and velvety vegan cheese cream, finally closed and covered with roasted black sesame seeds or vegetable caviar.

Temaki, the classic cone that shows its stuffed content, whose version with thin white beet chips, radish and melon, topped with sweet and sour sauce is simply great.

And what about the delicious vegetables sauté on a frying stone and gently stir with the traditional mushrooms and bamboo flavours, carrots and soybean sprouts?

A veritable explosion of tastes accompanied by a cup of green tea as a backdrop of finally vegan sushi.

London

If you are in London I advise you to go to Itadaki zen, a restaurant located in King’s cross Road, WC1X 9BJ where you can eat 100% vegan sushi (but not only), all strictly made with fresh products such as vegetables, roots and seaweeds.

Muffins with a delightful mango centre | Vegan recipes

Muffins with a delightful mango centre | Vegan recipes

This morning, I woke up with a great desire to change, to discover and to grow. I opened a drawer and old memories just came out. I found some pictures from my trip to the Canaries and this has increased my need to leave everyday routine behind just to venture into the world, feed with news, find new flavours… The smell of the ocean, of tropical fruits and their exotic taste. I want to feel the purity of the souls, which recalls me that of my native South of Italy. The Canaries are land rich in simplicity, humility and sunshine.

I woke up with all this… I was just thinking about the sweetness of mangos from that land, the delicate smell and juicy pulp that melts in your mouth. I love the traditional flavours and the dishes from my childhood, but I also love putting into play my taste buds and my culinary skills. Today, then, I am trying to combine these twos and I am going to bake some muffins with a tropical touch: a delightful mango centre.

I would blend the variety with the taste of this fruits. Let’s bite the pleasure and let’s enjoy the trip through the sense of taste!
