Low Carb Sushi Rolls Recipe


A low carb sushi rolls recipe? How could that be? With the miracle of cauliflower rice, you need not go without good old sushi when you are looking to reduce your overall carbohydrate intake. You can add as much or as little salmon, avocado and more to this recipe and take full advantage of the vitamins that come with them as well. Of course it will taste a little different to the normal sushi, but why not try something new?




Cauliflower rice

  • 650 g cauliflower
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • ¼ tsp salt



  • 4 nori sheets
  • 150g salmon
  • 75g cucumber
  • 1 avocado
  • 30g daikon
  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp (10 g) sesame seeds



  1. Using a grater or food processor, shred the cauliflower into rice-sized pieces. Steam or microwave the cauliflower rice on high for 2-3 minutes. Allow to cool completely.
  2. Add rice vinegar and salt. Squeeze out excess liquid.
  3. Assemble the sushi rolls. Start by placing the rectangular nori sheets with the shiny side down on a bamboo mat (included in most sushi kits).
  4. Spread the cauliflower rice in a ½ inch (1 cm) thick even layer so it covers ¾ of the sheet. Leave some space at the far edge so you can close the roll later.
  5. Add thinly sliced salmon, cucumber, avocado and daikon in the middle. Add some mayonnaise and sesame seeds, if you’re using any.
  6. Start rolling firmly but carefully, and close by brushing water on the rice-free edge.
  7. Lift from the mat and cut with a really sharp damp knife. Serve with ginger, soya and wasabi paste.
