Seafood-Free Sushi Recipes
Raw Fusion Sushi Bowl
You see, sushi doesn’t have to be all about trying to make perfect rolls of rice. Sometimes you can just gather the ingredients and eat them!
If you’re looking to eat more raw and are a little tired with regular salads, this is a fantastic alternative. I encourage you to go to the trouble of chopping and slicing to the best of your ability!
Presentation is so important, even if it’s just for yourself. Either follow the recipe or add your own raw veggies. The sauce will be the perfect dip or dressing, it’s simply delicious!
Brown Rice Veggie Roll
If you’re going to seriously get into this way of eating, I wholeheartedly recommend buying a sushi mat. They’re usually made of bamboo and are very inexpensive.
I love ingredients in this; wholesome, fresh and incredibly healthy.
If this is your first time using a mat and rolling everything, this would be a good place to start as the recipe page has a great link in the first line of the instructions following the ingredients on how to roll sushi.
Veggie Lunchbox Sushi
This is a California style recipe easily made at home with your favorite ingredients.
If you’re looking for a recipe that’s kid-friendly, this would be it. The ingredients couldn’t be simpler, and I love how the author, Nicole, says you can use quinoa instead of rice if you prefer.
The amounts listed in the ingredients make for about 24 items so adjust as necessary.
Cleansing Sushi Roll with Spicy Kale and Green Veggies
If you’re on some kind of detox or cleanse program, don’t think sushi is off the menu!
No rice goes anywhere near this recipe! This is all about kale and just a couple of other ingredients, all packed in nori sheets. Add some hot sauce for that extra kick!
Crunchy Air Fryer Sushi Roll
This sushi recipe is a little different as it uses an air fryer. If you don’t have one, you could get creative and perhaps adapt this recipe a little to achieve similar results although it’s specifically designed for this kitchen tool.
The ingredients are all about garlic, ginger and there’s lots of kale as well!
The recipe also includes a quick sriracha mayo dip as well!
I must admit the title of this recipe is what first attracted me. It’s a really fantastic idea!
If rolling sushi makes you nervous, fear not, just change the shape!
This recipe uses all your favorite fresh ingredients and you just wrap them up in a nori roll and you’re good to go!
Easy Vegan Sushi with Tomato Spicy Tuna
Don’t worry, the ‘tuna’ literally is tomato so it’s 100% plant-based!
This is a unique recipe with great ingredients. You still have that Asian feel with ingredients such as ginger, soy sauce and more.
I love how the rice is made, it’s not what you expect but just has a couple of extra ingredients to simply make it better!
Easy Sushi Rolls: Seaweed Snack Roll Ups
Get your nori sheets ready and prepared to make yourself a healthy and super easy lunch!
Nothing but the freshest ingredients such as celery, cucumber, lettuce and more! Do note the ingredients contain a brand-named seaweed chips and snacks.
If you are unable to source this, you could easily substitute with regular crunchy seaweed or even cut up some nori sheets.
Deconstructed Sushi Salad Bowl with Sesame Ginger Miso Dressing
I love the title of this! The reality is, obviously, you don’t make the sushi rolls and then take them apart again!
This recipe is essentially a salad that has a sushi theme. All your favorite ingredients such as rice, avocado, carrots and more.
Serve the ingredients in a bowl individually for that great effect and simply enjoy!
Sushi Roll in a Bowl
When is a sushi not a sushi? That is the question!
Nothing but delicious ingredients in this. However, don’t be mistaken as this is so much more than just a salad.
With ingredients such as tempeh, shiitake mushrooms and a little wasabi powder, this is incredibly satisfying without making you feel lethargic afterwards.
Whether it’s for lunch or dinner, this is a hit!
Do you have favorite sushi ingredients? I bet they’re all listed here with a couple of fantastic extras!
The first item on the list of ingredients is Wasabi Tofu, click or tap it as this is a link to a separate recipe which is nothing short of remarkable.
I think it’s the centrepiece of this bowl and is so delicious you’ll be making it with other dishes too. The rest of ingredients are fresh veggies and, of course, a little rice!
Teriyaki Tofu Sushi Burrito
This is a burrito with a difference!
The perfect combination of two classic dishes. It’s like regular sushi but rather than chop it into bite -sized pieces, you simply eat it as a burrito.
Stuffed with an array of rainbow vegetables and last, but certainly not least, crispy fried teriyaki tofu!
Sushi Bowls with Miso-Roasted Asparagus and Pickled Carrot
The only word I can think of that sums up this recipe is, wow!
I recommend you bookmark this dish. It has a lot of components to it but don’t let that put you off. If you and your friends love sushi, you probably make very similar dishes.
This is not one of them so when you want to raise the bar and do a little showing off, check this one out! You get to make pickled carrot for a start!
Then we have beautifully prepared asparagus, rice and more! For that special occasion.
Sweet Potato and Avocado Sushi Rolls
I had never heard of sweet potato in sushi before, so this was just fantastic to see.
This recipe is unique but certainly has a familiarity about it. The feeling is all about carrot, zucchini and more.
You can use toasted or plain nori sheets, I recommend the former. Put everything together and eat!
Sushi Donuts with Avocado and Mango
Sushi donuts, what? Trust me, you’re going to want to make this!
Check out the photo and tell me it’s not awesome! When it’s time to impress someone who thinks they’re coming around the sushi, you’re not lying, they are having sushi!
Hannah has thought outside of the box for this one and I love it. Why not?
Baked Tofu Temaki Sushi with Cauliflower Rice
I don’t know how many people have never had tofu or sushi, if you’re one of them, you just have to try this.
I know a few people that really didn’t like tofu when they first tried it, I was one of them!
The secret really is in its preparation and this recipe creates perfect tofu. Wrap them up in nori sheets with your favorite ingredients and you have a hearty meal!
Satay Soba Sushi
Sushi made with noodles, really? Absolutely!
Prepare your soba noodles beforehand and toss in an incredible sauce containing ginger, garlic and more.
Allow to cool, cut them up and use instead of rice. A fantastic idea to have sushi with a twist!
Raw Banana Hemp Seed Sushi Slices
Now, I’m really not so sure if we can go as far as to call this sushi, however, I will tell you that you need to make it and it’s stunningly delicious!
Bananas are one of my favorite foods so anything that involves this lovely fruit and I’m in. I’ve never seen anything like this before and put simply, I love it.
If you want to surprise your guests this would be it. I actually think they would make a great dessert after having more regular plant-based sushi.
Crispy Tofu Sushi Burrito
If you’re a tofu fan like I am, this is an absolute must!
Whoever thought Mexican and Japanese cuisine could merge together so beautifully?
Ingredients such as the kimchi, chipotle mayonnaise, pickled ginger and everything else make this nothing short of amazing.
Yummy Tempeh Sushi
Certainly, one of the most flavorsome sushi recipes I’ve ever had.
If you love intense flavors, this will be perfect. Along with the other ingredients which perfectly balances out the powerful tempeh and together they work beautifully.
You have to make this and try it, truly the only way to do this recipe justice.
Easy Sushi Bowl
Katie, the author of this recipe, describes this dish as, ‘a lazy person’s dinner’. I’m in!
The most challenging thing involved in creating this dish is cooking the rice. If you have a rice cooker, you’re already a step ahead.
There are just a small number of veggies (you can use any leftovers you have) and really, you’re pretty much done. Check it out, your love its simplicity.
Vegetable Sushi Avocado Toast
We’ve all heard of avocado toast before, if you love it and you love sushi, this is the recipe for you.
Avocado toast with your favorite sushi ingredients thrown on top. No rice was harmed in creating this recipe!
This is all about your favorite shredded veggies, sesame seeds and more. Comes together in no time and makes for the perfect quick lunch.
Nori Sushi Rolls with Tofu
I think I’d describe this as a classic plant-based sushi recipe.
You simply can’t go wrong with this. Make sure you get firm tofu and the freshest ingredients you can find, it will make all the difference.
If you want that sushi fix, make this your first stop every time.
Raw Sushi Wraps with Sunflower Seed Cheese
If you’re looking for raw recipes to increase the amount of raw food in your diet, this one is delicious.
The ingredients are divided into two sections, first you get to learn how to make the sunflower seed cheese, the rest is all about the wraps.
Combine the two and you’re good to go. No rice in this recipe, it’s all raw baby!
Millet Sushi with Roasted Root Vegetables and Broccoli Cream
Want sushi with a difference? Look no further.
Instead of rice, you’re looking at millet. It absolutely works and is delicious.
A lot of thought went into combining the flavors; this is so much more than simply replacing rice with millet.
For me, the real magic is the broccoli cream dressing. It’s in every bite and marries all the flavors together.
Sushi in a Jar
Here is a very special recipe indeed for so many reasons.
Following the ingredients and instructions step-by-step guarantees flawless results. If you don’t think you’re ready to roll sushi, here, you simply don’t have to.
In addition, your preparing a great meal that’s on-the-go by default. Make the night before and you have your perfect work lunch ready to go the next day.
Sushi Burrito Bowls with Avocado, Sweet Potato, Edamame, Carrot and Cucumber
I’ve seen a few sushi bowls in the past, they’ve all been good. This one raises the bar!
Do choose the freshest and best quality ingredients, it makes all the difference.
They say we eat with our eyes so, even if you make this just for yourself, go that extra mile for the presentation. It’s easy and you’ll love it.
To say I was curious about this recipe is an understatement!
The recipe author, Richa, has really thought outside the box on this. All your favorite sushi ingredients simply shaped differently.
Okay, so you’re not going to pick this up like a regular pizza, who cares! I think it’s awesome!
Crispy Spicy Sushi Bowls
I think this has to be saved for when it’s time to impress someone.
Isn’t the presentation simply fantastic? And yet it’s so simple to create.
The small amount of chopping, slicing and creating a few ribbons. This is the definition of beauty in simplicity.
Spicy Watermelon Sushi
Watermelon in sushi? What! You know, I think you ought to give this a try.
If you want to impress your friends with something completely different, this is the recipe to go for.
The crazy thing is, it works far better than you expect. The freshness and hydration from the watermelon leaves you wanting more and more!
Braised Fennel Sushi
Have you ever had fennel before? I have it occasionally as the main components of the salad.
Buy, wash and just chop up. Add a little olive oil, apple cider vinegar and you’re good to go.
Here the fennel is braised to perfection. It already has a bold flavor and this method of preparation enhances it even further.
Add the carrots, rice and the sriracha cashew sauce and you have a mighty fine meal right here!
Green Quinoa Sushi Rolls
If you’re avoiding rice at the moment but have that sushi craving, this will fix everything!
Perfectly prepared quinoa is the ideal substitute in this wonderful recipe. Simple ingredients such as cucumber, spinach and just a couple of other things.
Very inexpensive and easy to make. Best of all, it’s satisfying and incredibly tasty.
This recipe is an absolute classic. The rice is the centrepiece and then you have beautiful and creamy avocado over the top.
Simple and effective, this would make a great addition to sushi night. The best part for me is the home-made pickled ginger.
Incredibly easy and something you’ll be making again and again. Two recipes in one!
Raw Vegan Sushi
When you’re into raw food and you want to take it up a level, this does just that.
Sprouted kamut takes the place of rice in this fantastic raw vegan sushi.
Add portobello mushroom, avocado and just a couple of other things and you simply won’t believe this is raw. Your body will thank you too!
Spring Sushi Bowl
Oh my goodness, this is a very special dish indeed.
There are so many parts to this recipe. The rice is just one of the members on stage! The rest of the band are all equal in this performance.
Ginger, tomato, radish, red cabbage and so much more. Of course, you can swap out any of these veggies for anything you prefer or leftovers you have.
The simple addition of beet powder makes all the difference!
You won’t believe how few ingredients there are in this dish.
Grab some pickled ginger, soy sauce and of course, wasabi and have your own take-out at a fraction of the cost!
Silky Bell Pepper Sushi
When you want to go a little more authentic, go simple.
Here the rice is the, ‘body’ of the sushi and then you have beautiful bell pepper laying over the top.
Decorate with sesame seeds and if you want (not mentioned in the recipe), cut strips of nori sheets and use to tie the two together.
Avocado Sushi Tacos
No gimmick, this works and trust me, its beauty is in its simplicity.
This is all about green stuff! I genuinely love this dish. The different textures with the rice and the nori sheets along with all the other ingredients are simply perfect.
If you think you need a little help, the recipe page contains a video that takes you through everything step-by-step.
We don’t often see videos on recipe pages as they can take a lot of work to create; filming, editing, lighting to name just a few of the things needed. Go for it!
Grain Free Tofu Sushi
I know a lot of people that avoid any kind of sushi dish as they are refraining from grains.
Whether you fall into this category or not, this recipe is worth a second look. It’s incredibly easy to make and tastes very fresh.
Ensure you get sprouted super firm tofu as stated, it will make your life a lot easier and it tastes great with all the other ingredients.
Easy Sushi Casserole
When I first saw the title of this recipe, I wondered what it meant. A sushi casserole?
Jasmine and Chris came up with a winner here! All your favorite sushi ingredients without the hassle of making rolls.
I have reviewed hundreds and hundreds of recipes for these roundups and I think this is one of the simplest I have seen.
It’s not just the easiness either, it’s the presentation, the health aspect and of course, the taste. It’s a win!
Deconstructed Sushi Bowl
I’ve seen a few recipes like this where the main ingredients of sushi are simply placed in a bowl to make a great snack. This is one of the easiest versions so let’s take a look.
What I love about this is that Mary Ellen, the recipe author, suggests you make it your own by using any your favorite veggies.
When I see things like this, they get a big thumbs up as the author is thinking of you as well. However you create this, it’s going to be inexpensive, eye-catching and super healthy!
Quinoa Sushi Bowls with Orange Miso Dressing
Rainbow colors is what this dish is all about!
Forget the rice and go with quinoa in this wonderful recipe. I love it when bowls are presented in this way.
If you find it difficult to do, depending on the ingredients, you have to tip the bowl as you add everything one-by-one.
Either follow the recipe precisely or, use up any leftovers. Why not add some tofu as well?
Raw Parsnip Sushi Rice
This is more than just a raw recipe.
We’ve seen quinoa instead of rice, we’ve even seen millet instead of rice. In addition, cauliflower pulsed in the food processor is often used as a rice substitute. Now we have raw parsnip!
A great recipe and the parsnip adds its own subtle flavor which works beautifully with all the other ingredients and textures.
Sushi with Cauliflower Rice
Cauliflower whizzed in the food processor makes for a great rice alternative. This is what Marly, the recipe author, has gone for and we love it.
So easy to make and super healthy, you won’t miss anything about plant-based sushi with this dish. The freshest ingredients that stand on their own and yet also work together as one. Simply delicious!
Rainbow Vegetable Sushi Rolls
A delicious recipe where quinoa is used in addition to rice. Normally we see one or the other, but I love this idea as it lightens everything up.

For the beets, the ingredients call for the canned variety, you could also try raw, why not? Wonderful dish!
Tofu Katsu Sushi Lettuce Wraps
Sushi with a difference!
There are two great things about this dish, okay, more than two. It’s really healthy, easy to make and probably the thing I like best is the presentation.
It takes virtually no effort to make them look like it was made from a MasterChef.
When you want to impress someone but don’t have much time, go for this. They taste great too!
Sushi Burrito with Cauliflower and Sweet Potato
We’ve seen a few sushi burritos and this one is a definite favorite.
Mexico meets Japan in this fantastic combination of the two cuisines. You could easily make this your own by using your favorite ingredients or any leftovers.
It’s like making sushi without chopping it! Great for a work lunch or to take with you on a day out.
Learn how to make this classic sushi in your own home!

Sweet Potato Sushi with Miso Glaze
This is no regular sushi recipe that has been replicated.
Sweet potato and cucumber are the centrepiece wrapped in Thai rice. However, what makes this dish that extra special is the miso glaze.
