Meatless Monday

A popular pastime among our friends and family is sushi night. Several of us converge on a house and make an evening of it. As the resident vegan, I am charged with making all the vegetable sushi, and this recipe has become a crowd favorite.



  • 2 to 3 nori seaweed sheets
  • 1 Fuji apple, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium carrot, thinly sliced or shredded
  • Handful of basil leaves (6 to 7 leaves)
  • Raw agave nectar, for drizzling
  • Sea salt, to taste


  • Cut the nori sheets into thirds with kitchen scissors and place on a cutting board with the shiny side down.
  • Distribute apple, avocado, and carrot evenly onto each nori sheet.
  • Add a bit of ripped basil leaf onto each sheet and follow with a drizzle or raw agave nectar.
  • Season with a touch of salt to taste.
  • Wet the edge of one nori sheet and rollĀ  up tightly. Repeat with remaining sheets, and serve.
