Sushi is the absolute best.
Perfect for lunch, a snack, or dinner. In fact I even sometimes have sushi for a late breakfast.
I hadn't realised how quick and easy (and cheap) it was to make at home too!
In this recipe, I've just selected tuna avocado and cucumber filling, but there's plenty of other options
Some great anti-inflammatory ingredients also include:
- Salmon (smoked, raw, cooked)
- Tuna (raw, cooked)
- Lettuce and other leafy greens
- Spring Onion
Now that I'm a self-deemed pro at making sushi, I look forward to experimenting with some other ideas such as sardines, corn, eggplant, maybe chicken with pineapple might make a good combo!
But for today, we're just gonna stick with one of the more standard recipes.
I've included some links to videos to help with the rolling process in the recipe below, but here's an idea of what it should look like before wrapping. You can spread the rice thinner if you wish to have more fillings and less carbs.
I have started experimenting to perfect brown rice sushi. My first attempt turned out okay! The rice just doesn't stick together as well as sushi rice. My next attempt I will try a different type of brown rice and maybe a little bit more sugar. But it does work by following the same instructions as sushi rice.
This sushi can be tailored to Low FODMAP simply by omitting the avocado
It is suitable for those with a lactose intolerance, and who are gluten free.
And by simply not including the sriracha, it is nightshade free (however it won't be spicy...)
It is of course a great snack or meal for pescatarians too!
