Pete Evans shares a deliciously healthy way to make sushi

Tuna_Tahini_Sushi

I love the creativity that comes with cooking. This is a simple but exciting dish that I created as an alternative to using sushi rice. I took some leftover cauliflower rice, added nut butter for creaminess and tahini to give some extra stickiness. Have a play around with different fillings and dipping sauces. There are no rules to eating this way.

Ingredients

Nothing beats using your own fresh produce or materials around the house.

  • Cauliflower rice
  • What to do

  • 1. To make the cauliflower rice, place the cauliflower in a food processor and pulse into tiny, fine pieces that look like rice. Place the coconut oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the cauliflower and lightly cook for 4-6 minutes, or until softened.

  • 2. Combine the cauliflower rice, tahini and cashew or macadamia nut butter in a bowl, season with salt and mix well.

  • 3. In another bowl, mix the tuna, mayonnaise and chilli (if using).

  • 4. Place a nori sheet on a bench (or a bamboo sushi mat, if using). Spread one-quarter of the cauliflower rice mix on half of the nori sheet, working from the edge closest to you and spreading it right to the sides. Layer the tuna, rocket, cucumber, carrot and avocado across the middle of the cauliflower rice and, starting with the edge closest to you, begin to tightly wrap the roll all the way to the end. Trim the ends with a sharp knife, then cut into 2 cm round pieces. Repeat with the remaining nori, cauliflower rice and fillings.

  • 5. Place the sushi pieces on a platter and sprinkle over some sesame seeds.

  • 6. Serve with mayonnaise, tamari and wasabi.
