My sushi consumption lately has been through the roof, and I’m diggin’ it y’all! Contrary to how it looks, sushi is actually a very easy meal to make. My two-and-a-half year old son even loves it (go figure), so that makes it an extra easy dinner decision, at least to satisfy the fleeting toddler’s tastebuds. I find the sushi combinations to be endless- even as you step into vegan sushi.
Since we eat with our eyes first, this Shiitake Kale and Plum Sushi recipe will trick even the rawest sushi lovers with that tuna-looking plum, and once they taste it, they will undeniably fall in love with this plant-based alternative. And if you’re already on team veggie sushi, well this roll will not disappoint!
If you’ve spent some time on my blog, you must have noticed I’m a kale fanatic… kale me crazy but kale is life. So any time I can sneak the God of all greens in a recipe, I do it. In this Shiitake Kale and Plum Sushi recipe I used Nature’s Green’s Organic Tuscan Kale and it was perfect!
Other than the difference in appearance and texture to its curly kale cousin you may be more familiar with, Tuscan kale (also called Lacinato kale, black kale, or dinosaur kale) by no means pales in comparison when it comes to it’s nutritional value. In fact, Tuscan kale contains more beta-carotene, that’s right- and it’s not orange like carrots! Now I’m not knocking curly here, because I love ALL kale, just a fun fact for you if you’re not a huge carrot fan like myself.
I love that Nature’s Greens (WP Rawl) is a family farm that started in 1925 with nine family members still on staff and that they are dedicated to wholesome vegetables! I love supporting small (big!) businesses, especially when they are dedicated to integrity, safety, sustainability, social responsibility, teamwork, partnerships, and innovation.
Just remember, the more you roll, the easier it becomes, so just start doing it! So head on over to NATURE’S GREENS to find in a store near you and get rollin’! As always I love to see your re-creations of my recipes so be sure to tag me on Instagram or Facebook!
