Vegan Sushi Recipe From Acqualina

Yields 4 servings

  • 1 zucchini squash
  • 1 asparagus
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 tsp. beetroot hummus
  • 1 tsp. sesame seeds (black and white)
  • Micro sisho (for garnish)

Cut the zucchini lengthwise (thin slice) and julienne all the veggies into 1-inch sticks. Next, spread the beetroot hummus on the zucchini slice and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Place your favorite vegetable stick on top of the zucchini and make a roll, very gently cross the roll with a toothpick to hold the roll together.

Tasting Notes:

Crafted in a rich, yet balanced style, this wine displays a panoply of vibrant red fruit, but is bone-dry and refreshing to pair with a wide variety of menus including grilled salmon, lamb or even spicy Mexican cuisine all summer long.
