How to make vegan sushi

If you’ve just switched to a vegan diet, it’s perfectly normal to start to miss certain foods that are now out of reach. We’re not talking about cheese here (because our vegan Mac and Cheese recipe more than makes up for that!) no, we’re talking about sushi.

That’s why we’ve come up with our added protein vegan sushi recipe!

With a savoury and a sweet option, they make for a great snack, lunch, dinner or dessert! So, try our versatile vegan sushi and let us know what you think.
