Every time we go out for sushi, the veggie options are beyond boring. Am I just incredibly unlucky or do you have the same experience? A cucumber sushi roll? For the same price as everything else? Come on people, you can’t be serious. If you too are tired of bland veggie sushi, you’ll love these flavor packed sushi rolls. The smoky and nutty tempeh combined with creamy and rich avocado and crunchy sesame seeds make it one pretty exciting dish.

Veggie Sushi With Smoked Tempeh and Avocado [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan




  • 1 cup uncooked sushi rice
  • 2-3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • optional: 1-2 teaspoons natural sweetener of choice (I omitted but typically some sweetener is added to sushi rice)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or more to taste)
  • 4 nori seaweed sheets (or more, depends on how thick you want the rice layer to be)
  • 6 ounces of smoked tempeh (smoked tofu would work too), cut into small strips
  • ½ avocado, cut into small strips
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds

For serving:

  • Japanese style soy sauce
  • wasabi paste
  • pickled ginger


  1. Rinse and cook the sushi rice according to the package instructions.
  2. Mix in the vinegar, optional sweetener and salt.
  3. Taste and adjust to your liking and let cool to room temperature.
  4. Place a nori sheet on a bamboo sushi mat (you can use plastic foil but it doesn’t work nearly as well) and spread on a thin layer of rice. I like to do this with a spoon I keep dipping in a glass of water to prevent sticking.
  5. Add strips of tempeh and avocado, sprinkle with a bit of sesame seeds and roll it up. (If you’re a beginner sushi roller, you can check out this video for some guidance.)
  6. Slice with a sharp knife and serve with pickled ginger and soy sauce mixed with wasabi.
