AVOCADO ZUCCHINI SUSHI with BROWN RICE


So technically this isn't sushi, it's maki. But shh. 



I could eat this all day long, and sometimes I do. Avocado is one of my true loves (alongside Jack, Dante, my record player, papayas and raw chocolate) and with good reason - it's creamy, rich, and super good your body and mind. It goes really well with zucchini because they're kind of opposites, when you disregard their shared colour. Zucchini is light, fresh and juicy so the avo balances it out. Wrap it all up in seaweed and brown rice and you have made one happy girl outta me. Or I guess I did that myself... because no one ever cooks for me. Sad face. I am kind of joking but also semi-serious. Someone make me dinner, please. 

I don't have too much to say today because A) I woke up at 7 am this morning to do a radio interview about my new cookbook and that was really early for me, B) I am itching to go for a bike ride while the sun shine lasts and before I fall back to sleep, and C) I am craving a smoothie. 

Eat as much of this as you care for, really. It's all good. And change it up as much as you want! Try quinoa instead of rice, add some carrots or bell peppers, and make different dipping sauces! Spicy chili peanut sauce + pseudo-sushi!? YES, PLEASE. By the way, that is the second time I have said please in this post. I am feeling polite. The ingredient list and instructions for this recipe are so simple it's almost unbelievable, but that is what happens when you can appreciate whole foods. You don't have to do much to them! Okay we can ALL tell the quality of my writing has quickly gone from a C+ to a D in the last three very short paragraphs so I am going to say adieu until next time, my lovelies. Enjoy the sushi maki.



AVOCADO ZUCCHINI SUSHI with BROWN RICE

2 cups brown rice or other grain, cooked according to instructions on package
1 avocado, sliced
1 zucchini, cut into thin strips with a mandolin or spiralizer 
3-5 nori seaweed sheets

Sauce ideas: 

Set out all the ingredients and get going! Use these instructions to roll it all up because they are more useful than anything I could type. But P.S. why does the video has so many dislikes!? Did I miss something obviously wrong? She's just making sushi! Anyways. Enjoy. I love to serve mine with coconut aminos or peanut sauce.
