Easy Vegan Sushi Burrito

Easy Vegan Sushi Burrito

Sushi is one of my favorite foods and this version is the perfect lunch for work or uni. It fits perfectly in a lunch box, it doesn’t fall apart, its really filling and most importantly it tastes delicious. In this recipe, I use marinated tofu, avocado, cucumber and carrot just to keep it simple but you could really use whatever you want. I may post some variations in the future using teriyaki, salmon, quinoa and lots of other delicious veggies to give you even more lunch ideas.

I am going to try and feature more lunch and on-the-go recipes on my blog because at Uni my schedule is very unpredictable and when I’m out from 8 am until 7 pm I like to make you I bring lots of food to try and get me through the day so I stick to eating lots of healthy nourishing food and don’t spend too much money on campus!

Easy Vegan Sushi Burrito
Prep time
Total time
Healthy, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free
Serves: 1-2 people
  • 2 nori sheets
  • 200g (about ½ cup) cooked sushi rice, cooled to room temperature
  • 1 splash rice vinegar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ¼ avocado
  • ¼ cup cucumber
  • 1 small carrot
  • 2 slices of cooked marinated tofu
  • black sesame seeds
  • tamari
  • 1 small bowl warm water
  1. Firstly prepare the rice by mixing the cooked sushi rice with the rice vinegar and salt. Some recipes use sugar but I decided to leave it out because I don't think the rice needs it.
  2. Next thinly slice the avocado, cucumber, and carrots.
  3. Then take one nori sheet and place it on a sushi mat and then wet one edge with the water and stick the other nori sheet to it to create a giant and much longer nori sheet.
  4. Spread the rice evenly across the nori sheet leaving a 1-2 inch gap at the end.
  5. Then place the avocado, carrots, cucumber and tofu slices in the middle of the sheet.
  6. Use the mat to carefully roll up the sushi burrito and seal the edge with water.
  7. Slice off the ends to make it look neater, top with the sesame seeds and then its ready to eat or pack in your lunch box I also like to serve it with tamari. For lunch boxes, I like to wrap the sushi in parchment paper.
This recipe requires you to cook the tofu and rice in advance. To do this all I did was follow the directions on the package and for the tofu, I like to press it myself and marinate in a bit of tamari before baking but you could prepare it however you like.
