Grain free sushi

Since making this sushi and taking it to work for lunch I’ve had a quite a few requests to share the recipe so here goes, a perfect healthy summer lunch.



500g raw cauliflower florets

.5 – 1 tablespoon coconut oil

Sea salt

1 tablespoon tahini (this helps the rice to stick together)

2 tablespoons mayonnaise (to make your own click here)

3 nori sheets

Your choice of fillings, for example

120 – 150g cooked shredded chicken, tinned tuna or smoked salmon (or omit for a vegan option)

1 carrot or cucumber

half an  avocado

60g raw rocket (or baby spinach for a milder flavor)

Tamari and chilli sauce (to serve)



Heat a fry pan over medium high heat and add coconut oil

Meanwhile to make your rice put the cauliflower florets in the thermomix mixing bowl and chop 10 sec / reverse / speed 4

(if not using a thermomix you can chop the cauliflower using a food processor or box grater)

Tip the cauliflower rice into the fry pan and lightly fry for 4 to 5 minutes

Remove from heat and stir through tahini and a pinch of salt

Let that cool while you prepare your remaining ingredients

  • Combine the chicken (or tuna, or salmon) with the mayonnaise
  • Chop the carrot in thermomix 3 seconds / speed 5
  • De seed, peel and slice the avocado
  • Roughly chop the rocket or baby spinach

Put a nori sheet on the bench and top with a third of the cauliflower rice, spreading it on the half closest to you and out to the sides. Layer a third of the filling ingredients across the middle of the rice and starting with the edge closest to you, tightly wrap the roll to the end. Repeat with the remaining 2 nori sheets and filling. Cut the rolls into round pieces ready to serve with tamari or chilli sauce.
