In these Rainbow Sushi Rolls by Hannah Sunderani, sushi rice, nori, purple cabbage, carrot, kale, avocado and alfalfa rolled into a tightly packed sushi roll, with a tamari almond butter sauce to dip. Are you drooling yet? Making sushi at home may seem a bit daunting, but it’s actually super easy especially if you follow this recipe! When it comes to making sushi, you want to ensure the veg is well chopped into thin slices. Using a sharp knife, and taking extra care in slicing. It will go a long way to getting you a nice and tightly packed roll. Making rainbow sushi rolls is also a great date night activity, or something fun to do with your kids. Apart from chopping the veg (which honestly, takes some time), the sushi making process is quite straight forward.

These little Tofu Breakfast Bites by Kathy Hester are full of eggy flavor from the kala namak, an Indian salt that has a lot of sulfur, also known as black salt. If you are salt-free I’d recommend using some garam masala to spice them up. This recipe uses an egg bite silicone accessory or you can use small ramekins.

Lydia Filgueras‘ Mushroom & Nut Burgers from Mark Bittman are the best of the bunch…so far, at least! They’re flavorful and moist while maintaining a “meaty” texture that is often missing from patties made from beans and potatoes. This recipe is both vegan and gluten-free friendly as written. The pastiness from the ground nuts helps to hold the burgers together…no need for eggs or flour or bread to act as a binder.
