5 Step Sushi At Home
When I did the keto diet a few years ago, one of the foods I missed the most was sushi. It was truly painful, especially since I was used to eating sushi at least once a week. To me, sushi is the perfect meal. It’s filling yet light, fresh-tasting but still has a depth of flavor, and satiates your carb craving while giving you a healthy dose of protein. Unfortunately back then I didn’t have the creativity to make a keto sushi bowl recipe, but things have changed and I’m here for it!
In this keto rendition of sushi, I use cauliflower to make “rice.” This is super simple and only requires rice wine vinegar and a little bit of monkfruit sweetener. The cauliflower sushi rice is then topped with fatty, sushi-grade salmon that is quickly marinated in coconut aminos and complemented by fresh cucumber and creamy avocado. I topped this all with some sesame seeds and green onions. Nori strips would probably taste great, too! The combination of all of these flavors together is truly delicious!
One of the biggest plus sides of this dish is that it doesn’t require a bamboo roller or any complex actions to recreate. It’s the best of both worlds, really. All of the flavor of sushi but without the work! This simple dish comes together in just 15 minutes and is loaded with 37g of protein and 11g net carbs. This dish is paleo-friendly as well! For all you vegans out there, I think it would taste awesome if you replaced the salmon with tofu!
Feel free to experiment and have fun with your toppings and protein choices here! For example, this dish could easily be served with ahi tuna instead of salmon, or edamame instead of cucumber!
