Cauliflower Rice Sushi


Cauliflower is taking over the world. Don’t you think? Cauliflower pizzas, cauliflower ‘potato’ mash, cauliflower fried rice. Considering it’s so versatile I think the old cauliflower pretty underrated! Just to make you love it’s versatility even more, I present: cauliflower rice sushi.

I’ve been loving this light sushi option lately. As much as I love quinoa sushi, this cauliflower rice hits the spot in the hot Aussie summer heat.

If you’re not a cauliflower lover not to worry! It doesn’t really have a strong taste, it just provides a great texture. And as always you can get as creative as you like with your fillings. The cauli rice will take you approximately 4 minutes to make! Too easy.

Cauliflower Rice Sushi

grain-free, gluten-free

Makes one roll.


  • 1/2 head cauliflower
  • 1 sheet nori
  • fillings of your choice! For example: avocado, capsicum, carrot, cucumber, smoked salmon, tuna, chicken etc.


  • Blend raw cauliflower in a food processor until it is chopped into rice size pieces. You can leave the cauliflower raw or lightly cook it in coconut oil in a fry pan (as I did). Add a pinch of sea salt if cooking too. It should make about two cups of cauliflower rice.
  • Lay your nori sheet shiny side down on a bamboo mat
  • With a spoon spread the cauliflower onto the nori sheet, gently squishing it down. Spread all the way to the sides leaving a 1 cm gap from the bottom and 2 cm gap from the top.
  • Lay your fillings horizontally on top of the cauli rice about 1 cm from the bottom of it.
  • Carefully begin rolling the sushi. Picking up the mat from the edge nearest to you by placing your thumbs under it and your fingers on the filling. Press down a little as you roll, but not so tightly that everything comes out the sides.
  • You don’t want to roll the mat up with the sushi – you are basically rolling the mat so it folds in half while the sushi rolls up in between.
  • Once rolled, gently squeeze the sushi to round it and make sure everything is packed in tightly.
  • Cut the sushi either in half or into small pieces.
  • Enjoy!


Now over to you. What’s your favourite sushi filling?
