You may have seen my raw sushi and vegan hand roll post yesterday on Instagram, which was very tasty by the way. I didn't have quite enough time to take tutorial photos of the sushi rolling process, so unfortunately, I will have to do a post on that another time. But, as I was rushing to pack our lunches this morning I said "Ah ha!" Of course, I will use the left overs from last night to make a sushi rice salad. Perfect. You can do this with the acutal sushi rice as well to make it vegan. Super easy and super yummy! I love these simple Japanese inspired dishes that are healthy and full of flavor.
SUSHI RICE SALAD
To make the jicama rice, take 1 medium size jicama and peel the skin off, cut them into small cubes, and process them in the food processor until you have small rice like pieces. Then put the jicama in a cheese cloth and squeeze all the liquid out of the jicama. Put the jicama in a bowl and season it with 2-3 tablespoons of sushi rice vinegar and set aside.
Julienne cut your favorite vegetatables to top the rice salad and season with a mixture of wasabi and your favorite type of "soy sauce". Finally garnish with cut nori strips and sesame seeds if you have some. Super simple.

I will be working on a post for these soon...
