vegetarian sushi for beginners

Presented by Sakana

Vegetarian sushi for beginners is a course for people who do not like fish or are vegetarians.

No, vegetarian sushi is not a hosomaki with cucumber or a nigiri with avocado. Vegetarian Sushi is so much more and has so many flavors to offer.

Vegetables have a completely different texture they can add quite different aromas and flavors to sushi. It takes longer to make vegetarian sushi because you must use different cooking techniques to prepare the vegetables. In return you get some experience with new flavors.

The Japanese omelet Tamago is velvety and spongy when it is made to perfection. It is quite complicated to make but it can be explained in a simple way. I will of course show step-by-step how to make it.
