After a bit of practice and following the sushi rice packet instructions I have finally been able to roll homemade sushi perfectly! And since we have homemade vegan sushi a lot at home. It is one of Annabelle’s favourite thing ever. We change fillings by using satay tofu or avocado, cucumber, capsicum and lately: teriyaki jackfruit!

Why jackfruit?

Jackfruit is well known for being a great swap in plant-based recipes for chicken so with a bit of Teriyaki sauce it creates a great substitute for Teriyaki chicken sushi and instead you have plant-based/ vegan jackfruit sushi! I bet your family will enjoy these jackfruit sushis too!

A good trick when cooking with canned jackfruit is rinsing it very well as it can be a little sweet and balancing it with a savoury/salty/strong flavour. I find teriyaki marinade like in these vegan jackfruit sushi or Mexican spices work great when cooking with jackfruit.

You can make sushi using brown rice if you prefer. I have not tried yet. And you could replace the jackfruit for tofu and other marinades like satay.
