Raw Zucchini Sushi Rolls - 22.4g Carbs, 7.3g Fiber, 7.3g Sugar



Prep time: 10 min

Total time: 10 min

Author: Sonnet

Recipe type: Entree

Serves: 4


½ cup cashews, soaked overnight in water

1 Tbsp rice vinegar (optional)

3 - 4 zucchini (each yields 6 - 8 slices)

2 carrots, sliced into matchsticks

1 cucumber, seeds removed and sliced into matchsticks

4 medium radishes, sliced

1 avocado, peeled and sliced

1 small bunch cilantro


1.     Drain cashews and put into food processor with rice vinegar..

2.     Process, scraping sides with spatula if necessary, until cashews are a soft paste but still have some texture. (Depending on how long cashews were soaked you might need to add a tablespoon of water to get the right consistency.)

3.     Chop the ends off of your zucchini and use a vegetable peeler to peel your zucchini into long, thin strips.

4.     Lay zucchini strip flat and add a small spoonful of cashew mixture onto one of the ends of zucchini.

5.     Add a few matchsticks of veggies, avocado, and a couple of pieces of cilantro.

6.     Roll up and enjoy!


Notes: Soaking the cashews in water for a few hours or overnight will help to soften them and make it easier to process them. You can also skip this step if you are short on time.
