Ingredients

  • 1 pack sushi-grade rice, sliced thin and cut diagonally
  • 1 package of riced cauliflower
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Scallions, thinly sliced and long
  • Cucumber, thinly sliced and long
  • Avocado, thinly sliced and long
  • Toasted nori sheets

Optional Toppings

  • Pickled ginger
  • Wasabi
  • Tamari or low-sodium soy sauce

Directions

  1. In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat and add the riced cauliflower. Saute for a few minutes until it becomes tender. Add 2–3 tbsp of water if it starts to dry out.
  2. Place the nori sheets on a bamboo mat and spread 3–4 tbsp of cauliflower rice onto the sheet. It should cover most of the sheet, leaving a 1-inch gap at the end furthest away from you.
  3. Layer on the sliced tuna and veggies to the end closest to you. Wet the end without rice with a small amount of water and roll up into a long roll.
  4. Remove from bamboo mat and slice into 6–8 pieces, depending on how thick or thin you want them to be. Top with pickled ginger and dip into wasabi or tamari sauce.
