We served with a stir-fry and blood-oranges. I sauteed onion, garlic and carrots in a little canola oil. Then added some chopped baby bok-choy and steamed edamame. Added some sauteed cubed baked teriyaki tofu. Drizzled some sesame oil over the top and added a stir-fry sauce made of soy sauce, brown sugar, mirin (japanese rice wine) and fresh grated ginger. Then topped with black sesame seeds.

For dinner I made 6 rolls of veggie sushi. I used a sticky green jasmine rice that is infused with bamboo that I got from the local co-op. Makes really good sushi. For the filling I used green onion, avocado, cucumber and baked sesame-honey tofu. You can vary the ingredients-some other ideas are enoki or portobella mushrooms, sprouts, roasted peppers, whatever. I am thinking that cream cheese and jalepenos sound kinda good, too. Before I tried to make sushi for the first time (this was only my second time) I watched a video about making vegan sushi from the Post Punk Kitchen. There are also numerous videos about sushi making on YouTube. Makes it a lot easier.
