Friends, I am super excited about this post… a couple of firsts for me happening here: first time rolling sushi inside out and first time coloring my rice with Purple Sweet Potato Supercolor Powder from Suncore Foods! Side note: did y’all know about purple sweet potatoes? Like- I just discovered them last year… and that makes me a little salty because I’m a lover of all things purple, especially foods and I feel like I’ve been missing out!
Admittedly, I like the taste of spicy tuna sushi, but the thought of eating raw tuna, for me, kinda gives me the heebeegeebees. So I wanted to create a plant-based version that has a similar taste to a spicy tuna roll that doesn’t make my brain say “eww”. Now before I lose all you real spicy tuna roll lovers, hear me out.
Roasted sweet potatoes get smashed and combined with vegan mayo and chili sauce for a taste and texture that resembles spicy tuna. Kale gets massaged with sesame oil and liquid aminos (soy sauce) and then rolled in purple sweet potato rice covered nori sheets snuggled with avocado and then garnished with hemp seeds. Now go ahead, tell me your mouth isn’t watering…
Now to the really fun part… the pretty purple sweet potato rice! I am so excited with how this turned out. Yes, nature has given us purple rice, also known as black rice which I love too, but this version of purple rice is so vibrant and also packs in the nutrients of purple sweet potatoes with the addition of Suncore Foods® Organic Purple Sweet Potato Supercolor Powder!
This Organic Purple Sweet Potato Supercolor Powder is not only loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, but purple sweet potatoes can boost immunity, improve digestion, and protect the liver. So when you’re eating this pretty sushi you’re also giving your body some amazing health benefits too!
And if you’ve never rolled sushi, I promise it’s not quite as intimidating as it looks. Try something new and give it a shot! It’ll be a fun culinary adventure 🙂 This video shows you very well how to roll sushi with the rice on the outside. I actually think you could get away with trying it without the sushi rolling mat if you don’t have one either.
So head on over to SUNCORE FOODS to get your Organic Purple Sweet Potato Supercolor Powder and get rolling! As always I love to see your re-creations of my recipes so be sure to tag me on Instagram or Facebook! ROLL out!
