Sushi made with succulent, fresh vegetables or tofu is one of the healthiest foods you can eat - it is both low in fat and rich in essential minerals and vitamins. Now, with Vegetarian Sushi you can learn how to prepare these simple, mouthwatering sushi at home for a meal that is healthy and delicious.

Sushi and sashimi is hugely popular in the West, with most grocery stores having packaged meals available in the deli sections. For those not interested in eating sashimi, raw fish, or those who are vegetarian, sushi is still a flavorful option. This vegetarian cookbook teaches you everything you need to know to make these delicious Japanese dishes in your own kitchen. This sushi book covers a wide variety of sushi—sushi rolls, or maki, molded sushi, noodle sushi, omlette sushi, sushi in a bowl—as well as soups, sauces, and pickles to accompany the sushi.

Sushi made with vegetables can be both a feast for the eyes and a treat for the palate. Author Brigid Treloar's step-by-step instructions, using only the freshest ingredients and subtle seasonings, make creating dishes such as cucumber and sesame rolls, grilled shiitake sushi, asparagus and sweet red pepper sushi rolls, or soba noodle sushi a breeze. You'll even find recipes for sushi made with brown rice and there are many other recipes for delicious vegetarian food.

Whether you experiment with nigiri-zushi topped with vegetables or an omelette, prepare large or small sushi rolls, or try sushi in a bowl, once you make a few of these recipes you may never go out for sushi again.

Inside this vegetarian cooking book, you'll find information on equipment and ingredients, tips on how to prepare the rice, and, of course, plenty of delicious recipes, including:
  • Cucumber and Sesame Sushi Rolls
  • Seasoned Tofu Rolls
  • Grilled Shiitake Sushi
