The book has recipes for making some store bought ingredients, how to pickle vegetables, substitutes, etc..It has sushi using spinach, lettuce, etc as a wrapper. A good vegetable department in a grocery store is fine. There are recipes using somen noodles, brown rice, and rice noodles instead of sushi rice. Instructions on how to use tofu skins...boy so many things. It also has soups and bowl sushi instructions.
I love sushi too and it has been really hard to give it up completely since I became vegan, but a restaurant near my house has really good vege tempura rolls instead of shrimp. I think I'm going to look for the reciepe book.
I love sushi! We are lucky enough to have a good Japanese restaurant near us. I order their veggie sushi & they make one with shiitake mushrooms, & their futomaki. Order a side of edamame or seaweed salad & I'm in heaven! This post is making me hungry!!

Usually I only make the "inside out" sushi, rice on the outside with sesame seeds on the rice and the nori on the inside with the veggies. Now I need to buy some molds and make some of the other types they show. One had a group of tear drop shapes, nori on the outside, forming a vine of leaves as the presentation. Gotta love it!

i have never had sushi. i think it is beautiful though (for food, lol). i am surprised to find that some can be vegetarian, i had always thought it was various forms of fish.. thanks for the heads up and hope you enjoy your new book.
have a peaceful day, zen

"Vegetarian Sushi" Brigid Treloar arrived today. Just glancing through it was a treat. So many ideas that hadn't occured to me. Each photo is prettier than the last. I love veggie sushi so this is going to be a beloved book in my collection. I got it used at Amazon, perfect condition so even better.
