These low carb sushi rolls taste similarly on par with the genuine article! This simple low carb cauliflower sushi recipe gives you every one of the flavors you love about this Japanese treat, just without all the carbs.
At the point when you go to a Japanese café, there are simply not much of decisions since I’ve gone on a low carb diet. Virtually all dishes contain either masses of rice or accompanied sauces that are high in sugar.
I will more often than not adhere to miso soup, edamame beans, and sashimi. Notwithstanding, this is never a genuinely fulfilling dinner. As the majority of you will be aware, is a piece of crude fish. It’s tasty, however not something you’ll need to fill your stomach with. Besides, it was truly costly.
Goodness, how have I been having sushi desires? The issue with standard sushi rolls is – you got it – the rice.
Could You at Any Point Eat Sushi on Keto Low Carb Diet?
The base fixing in ordinary sushi is vinegar-seasoned tacky rice. Rice is without gluten, yet it is dull and it will influence your glucose levels. 100 grams of cooked sushi rice contains 28.7 grams of carbs. Hence, it isn’t appropriate for the keto diet.
The time had come to make low carb sushi rolls without rice!
Presently, obviously, it would be feasible to make no rice sushi – that is, to just leave out the rice through and through and simply fill the nori sheets with fish and vegetables.
Be that as it may, I honestly love cauliflower rice. Also, I think the cauliflower rice blend I’m utilizing mirrors the surface of sushi rice all around well.
The ‘rice’ is delicately sautéed to still somewhat firm. This removes the marginally impactful cauliflower flavor you get with eating it crudely.
It is then blended in with mayo or cream cheddar to furnish the tenacity you get with typical sushi.
In conclusion, I’ve added apple juice vinegar rather than mirin and broiled sesame seeds for sushi validity and a touch of goodness.

Here are the fixings we’re utilizing:

Cauliflower, oil and vinegar, cream cheddar, and white sesame seeds

Salted ginger, coconut aminos or soy sauce, wasabi, or a fiery mayo, for example, sriracha mayonnaise.
Low Carb Sushi Rolls Guidelines
- Place the cauliflower florets in a food processor and heartbeat utilizing the S edge until they look like rice.
- You might have to do this in a few clusters to get great consistency.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a nonstick griddle or cast iron skillet. Broil the cauliflower on low/medium intensity for 5 – 6 minutes until still somewhat firm. Eliminate the dish and permit it to cool completely.
- Dry fry the sesame seeds in a nonstick prospect – 5 minutes on low – medium intensity until brilliant. Permit cooling.
- When the rice has completely cooled, place it in a bowl and blend in with the cream cheddar or mayonnaise, vinegar, and sesame seeds.
- In the meantime, set up the veggies. Cut the cucumber and pepper into flimsy strips, disposing of the seeds. Cut the avocado.
- Put the nori on a bamboo sushi mat or clingfilm. Add the rice, leaving around 1 cm at the two restricting seal edges. Layer the cucumber, pepper, avocado, and smoked salmon, and when edge and firmly roll utilizing the mat.

Low Carb Sushi Rolls Filling Varieties
As usual, there are loads of choices relying upon your own inclination.
I was involved in smoked salmon for accommodation. Be that as it may, you can obviously utilize crude sushi-grade salmon or fish assuming that you like. It’s vital to utilize sushi-grade fish and NOT crude wild salmon. Sushi grade (for example cultivated) is expected for well-being. This makes me wonder – have you attempted my Eminent Salmon Ceviche?
Other fish and fish fillings we have attempted are cooked smoked mackerel, cooked prawn, and crab.
Try not to purchase impersonation crab meat as it might contain added sugars or starches.
There’s no added salt in this keto sushi recipe as a result of the salt in the smoked salmon. However, in the event that you are utilizing crude salmon, you can add a spot of salt to the cauliflower rice.
I picked the Japanese sushi staples avocado and cucumber in addition to peppers since I needed a pop of variety. Other conceivable vegetable fillings for cauliflower sushi would be cabbage, bean sprouts, courgettes, a little carrot, kale, spinach, watercress, rocket, or even simmered low carb veggies – all finely cut.
Guarantee the cauliflower rice is completely cooled prior to blending in with the cream cheddar or mayonnaise blend to forestall the nori sheets from wilting up.
In a perfect world, utilize a bamboo mat to roll. In the event that you don’t have a bamboo roller, use grip film. It will assist you with making a decent perfect and tight keto sushi roll.
Utilize an extremely sharp blade to cut and clean your blade between cuts.
For green sushi why not take a stab at supplanting the cauliflower with broccoli rice? Simply follow a similar technique yet use broccoli florets rather than cauliflower.
I have not yet had a go at making keto California rolls. California roll is a “back to front” sushi, and that implies the rice is outwardly and the filling, for example, avocado, crab, cucumber, and zesty mayo is within. My inclination is that cauliflower rice simply will not have a similar staying power as it’s deficient with regard to the starch in the rice.
This recipe is best appreciated new. I don’t suggest putting away keto sushi for longer than a day in the ice chest. The cauliflower will begin to deliver fluid after that and the sushi will become saturated.
To save time on the day, consider setting up the cauliflower rice a day ahead. Store it in the ice chest in an impenetrable holder. Along these lines, you don’t need to hang tight for it to chill off and you can gather everything in one go.
