Temperatures are getting warmers, so our bodies will naturally gravitate towards hydrating foods. Here is my Japanese Sushi Handroll recipes with a Carrot Sesame Ginger Sauce! 


  • 1 cup (180g) cauliflower sushi rice
  • 3 TBS sushi seasoning
  • 10 sheets toasted sushi nori (seaweed)
  • 1/2 choice of mushrooms
  • 1 medium red bell pepper
  • 6 oz (170g) preserved daikon
  • 2 medium cucumber sliced
  • 2 small avocados, pitted and sliced
  • furikake for topping (optional)


  1. Prep cauliflower rice or use quinoa or brown rice.
  2. Cut the nori sheets in half. Place one half of the nori sheet on a board, shiny side down. Spoon some rice onto the nori (about 2 to 3 tablespoons). Spread the rice so that you fill one half of the nori. Top the nori with a few slices of cucumber, red pepper, daikon, and veggies. 
  3. Starting with the lower right-hand corner, roll the nori towards the left, until you reach the end. Seal the hand roll with a few grains of rice. Repeat with all the other nori sheets.
