Mock Crab and Vegetable Nori Recipe
Posted on 3rd of May, 2010 by Lévana
There are times we just can’t make sushi rolls with rice (for instance on shabbos, or anytime when they need to be made in advance). Rice-based sushi is never quite as good after it is refrigerated: The rice tends to harden and get an objectionable tough texture. This is why I love to make rice-less sushi rolls anytime. I have simplified the process by mixing all the filling ingredients, as opposed to layering them one by one. It will look homemade, and will be every bit as delicious! Of course you might want to make your filling our of any interesting vegetables, even without fish: Asparagus, cucumber, sliced nappa, anything you like!
1 pound mock crab, thinly flaked
1 large carrot, grated
1 4 inch piece daikon, grated
2 cups shitaki caps, chopped
1 avocado, sliced thin
6 scallions, sliced thin
6-8 nori sheets
1 bamboo mat
Mix the first set of ingredients in a bowl.
Place a nori sheet on the mat, spread some of the mixture (eyeball it: you should have enough for all the nori) ov3r the sheet, leaving an inch border at the top. With the help of the mat, roll the sheet tightly all the way up. Repeat with the remaining sheets and filling. Sliced each roll in 6 pieces, arrange on a platter, and serve with soy sauce, pickled ginger and wasabi powder mixed with a little water
