Mini Sushirrito

Bigger than sushi, smaller than a sushirrito.... it's awesome!


I am a huge fan of seaweed. I could eat it everyday. I LOVE it. So, when I saw the new 'sushirrito' restaurants and recipes floating around, I had to try it.

Mine doesn't qualify for the enormity of a sushirrito -- but it was WAY too big to be called sushi, either. What was it? Filling. Tasty. Yummy.

Brown rice, cooked and cooled
Apple cider vinegar
Veggies: celery, carrots, avocado
Meats: cooked tofu, veggie burger, anything really!

I used some stuff I had around the house for this recipe and it was amazing. So, you could probably change the ingredients completely and still come up with a great meal. NOTE: One Mini Susshrito is almost enough for two people!.. especially if you're having edamame or anything else with it. Trust me. Filling.

Cook your brown rice. You want it moist and semi-soft. Now, let it cool until warm. Sprinkle with ACV and mix around. Put in the fridge. You want it cold. The ACV should make it more sticky, like sushi rice. NOTE: You must use short grain, not long grain.


Lay out your nori on your sushi roller. Use a LOT of brown rice. This is your meal... so pile it on! Next, I layered the broken veggie burger all the way across. Now, add your sliced carrots, celery (yum!) and avocado if you have it. This is one large sushi.. so you must have a roller! (Stop by any local Asian market .. they're about a buck. No, srsly.)

Use a VERY sharp, wet knife to slice your sushi. Or, if you've made it big like a sushiritto, you can wrap it in wax paper or a cloth napkin and enjoy like a burrito! (See.. sushirrito.)

Dip in some soy sauce + hot sauce + mustard sauce. Enjoy!


  1. Looks AMAZING!!!! I am going to have to try this very very soon!! Thank you so much for the recipe!

  2. You can use any veggies you have! Asparagus, bell peppers, mushrooms - raw or grilled veggies... whatever. The possibilities really are endless.

    I dipped these in a little soy sauce + hot chilis + mustard powder, but depending on what ingredients you use, you can try dipping it in another sauce. Or even pour a little into the sushirrito instead.
