In this video, lifestyle guru and motivational speaker Markus Rothkranz gives viewers how to make a raw and vegan version of sushi. It contains no rice or fish but tastes and looks like real sushi! The sushi only contains plants that you could find in your own garden. This video features Markus’ partner Cara Brotman doing the cooking.
First, Cara makes slices the sharp edges off some aloe vera and peels the skin off. Then, she rinses the aloe vera off under cold water to remove the gooey gel and bitter flavor from its surface. Next, she places the aloe vera into some beet juice to give it color and flavor.
The next step is to make “rice.” Cara uses parsnips for this. She cuts it into small pieces, then adds it to a food processor. Then, she adds some cashew butter to the rice to hold it together. Next Cara cuts a strip of toasted seaweed to make a sushi wrapper. After that, she takes a tablespoon of rice, molds it into an oval, and places it toward the bottom of the seaweed strip. She then adds the aloe vera “fish” on top of the parsnip “rice.” Finally, she rolls the sushi up and seals the seaweed strip ends.
The video ends with Cara showing off her final creation. She then tells viewers that this sushi recipe can be found in her and Markus’ “gourmet uncookbook” Love on a Plate on page 180. You can also find the recipe at rawvegansushi.com.
