Fit Food – Vegan Quinoa Sushi Recipe

This recipe was created by Jan Cron for our Fit Food Japanese flavours class, it’s packed full of rainbow superfoods and makes a great snack or light meal.

Ingredients – serves 5

5x nori wraps

2 cups of quinoa

1 avocado

1 rainbow beetroot

100g cream cheese

2x lime


  1. 1. Cook the quinoa as usual with addition of 1 extra cup of water: rinse first, cook for 15 minutes with the lid on. Don’t peak, leave it alone, then, let it stand for 10 minutes. Make sure it’s cool completely before making sushi.

  2. 2. Meanwhile, cut the beetroot into very thin sticks, smash avocado and mix with lime in a bowl.

  3. 3. Prepare sushi mats by wrapping in cling film.

  4. 4. Layer quinoa evenly on the whole of the nori, leaving 1 inch on the top empty. Place beetroot, avocado and cream cheese in a line 5 inches from the bottom.

  5. 5. Roll your sushi and seal using cold water.

  6. 6. Carefully slice and serve with soy sauce, wasabi and ginger.
