Indian Cauliflower Rice Raw Foods Sushi

SushiHow healthy does this Indian Cauliflower Rice Raw Foods #Sushi look?

Hands up who would like a piece of this Indian Cauliflower Rice Raw Foods #Sushi right now?

Well, after being energized from attending the Raw Foods Workshop with Tansy and in making my “confession”  Embarassed:

My name is Joanne and I am a meat-eating, “enjoyer” of South Australian red wines and local produce, too!

I decided to see what I could create that would would be simple, tasty, easy to do! With this raw food creation, I was PASSIONATE to do! Very HappyVery Happy

I have to admit when I tried Tansy’s Indian Wild Rice (made with cauliflower), I “immediately” got a craving for sushi (which because of the carbs with rice) is not currently on my food lifestyle.

Let me “clarify” that before I have someone out in “Computerland” ask, “What’s wrong with rice?” (Remember, I can ‘still “hear” you! Laughing)

There is nothing wrong with rice and on “occasion“, I can indulge in basmati rice to name one of three “on my list” It is “simply” a matter of making the best choices for my health with foods that are lowest in carbs; my doctor is “guiding” this ship and I am A LOT happier and healthier for it! Very Happy

RiceThe recipe for Tansy’s Indian Wild Rice can be found on my previous blog post.

Does anyone know the difference between sushi and maki? (is not a trick question, as I too learned something today) Wink

I always think if I have a question, than someone else in Computerland “might” have the same question too!

Nothing is ever too silly or stupid to ask; is my life philosophy too!

For the sake of “simplicity” today maki is a type of sushi, usually rolled up in nori” (seaweed) like I created with this recipe.

Between you and me, I was never SO E-X-C-I-T-E-D about buying a head of cauliflower today, TRUE! Very Happy

HOW easy was this to do? I “hear” you say? Wink

I “introduced” Mr. Carrot to my food processor (it is a food processor from “hell” TRUE, but that story will have to wait for another day!) ShockedShockedShocked

CarrotsAdded Mr. Radish, who thought the “introduction” was GRATE! lol
(Pun intended! Wink)

RadishMr. Alfalfa “sprouted” to the occasion!

I enjoy using ingredients I had on hand today! Very Happy

SproutsWhen I was “little”, Popeye The Sailor Man was my FAVORITE cartoon character and it was only in later years that I wondered “subliminally” did a company hired the character to actually “like” spinach and always reiterate to always “eat your spinach”

Some habits die hard, but I always think my spinach taste better when it is chopped. There is no scientific proof of that, but seeing I was making the “special” dish for myself for lunch….

SpinachMr. Beetroot wanted to add to the colorful occasion.

BeetrootI also enjoy a dipping sauce with my sushi. I looked in my What’s On The List folder and saw I one that “ironically” fell out of the folder and found me! (like the books “literally” flying off the shelf in LU ROU FAN Vendor Bian Dang Wink )

  2. Louise says:

    I would never have thought mixing the world of sushi with India. Thank you for a great idea. Looks absolutely delicious!

  3. Nami | Just One Cookbook says:

    WOW! Really creative rolls! I’m very impressed. I’d love to taste them. You rolled them beautiful too. 🙂

    • Thank you Nami for your lovely and kind words! These really are YUM and I look forward to when next I make too! It was only by “trial and error” that I figured out how to hand roll, how much ingredients and the perfect size for me too!

  4. Aisha says:

    It sounds delicious!!!

  5. That looks awesome! And I wasn’t sure if it would stick together but yours looks like it has perfectly! 😮

    • Thanks Lorraine! I think due to processing the cauliflower and the ingredients finely, then spreading the filling with my hands and “gently” patting down on the surface helped. If you pat it down “less than gentle”, the nori sheet will break! For me, it was “trial and error”
      Hope I can “inspire” you to make too!

  6. Kim says:

    What a pretty presentation and I bet between all the vegetables and spices it was delicious. Fantastic picture as well.

  7. Looks good! It looks like sushi, so that is a good start 🙂
