Vegan California Roll Ingredients: 1/2 cup short-grain rice 1 Tbsp. rice vinegar 1 can (14-oz. each) hearts of palm, drained 1 Tbsp. vegan mayonnaise 1/2 tsp. low-sodium Old Bay® seasoning 3 1/4 sheets nori 3/4 ripe, Fresh California Avocado, seeded, peeled and sliced 1/2 cucumber, sliced into thin matchsticks 1/2 tsp. water, divided 1/2 cup Avocado Wasabi Sauce (see make-ahead recipe below) Avocado Wasabi Sauce: 1/2 ripe, Fresh California Avocado, seeded and peeled 1/4 cup water, plus more as needed 1/2 tsp. wasabi powder, to taste 1/4 tsp. garlic powder 1/8 tsp. salt, to taste 1/8 tsp. pepper, to taste

Vegan California Roll Instructions:

  1. Cook rice according to package directions. When done, add rice vinegar. Stir and set aside.
  2. To make the “crab” mix, use a knife to slice the hearts of palm into small, thin pieces, similar in texture to lump crab meat, then add to a medium bowl. Stir in mayonnaise and Old Bay seasoning. Crumble ¼ sheet nori into the bowl and stir once more.
  3. Place a sheet of nori onto a sushi mat or parchment paper. Spread out rice into an even layer. In a horizontal line towards one end of the nori sheet, place a few spoonfuls of “crab” mix, sliced cucumbers and sliced avocado.
  4. Roll the sushi tightly, adding a bit of water with your finger at the end to help the nori stick to itself and close the roll. Slice into 8-10 pieces.
  5. Drizzle with avocado wasabi sauce and serve.

Avocado Wasabi Sauce Instructions:

  1. In a blender, add all ingredients and blend.
  2. Add more water as needed to blend to desired consistency.
  3. Set aside.

Serving Suggestion: Serve as-is for a delicious, light meal.

Beverage Pairing: Pair with your favorite crisp, white wine or sake.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
