Raw diet Sushi recipe
In an effort to get my whole family healthy, my husband and I have been experimenting with a RAW foods diet and doing a cleanse. We both are HUGE sushi fans and used to get it quite often; so this was be one of the things we missed while doing the cleanse. I created this recipe to satisfy the sushi urge while staying true to the diet. I used the left over carrot stuffing to stuff a hallowed vine-ripe tomato and drizzled it with Pompeian Grapeseed Oil. Normally, I would have infused a vegetable oil with garlic and other spices over a few days, but this time I tried the Grapeseed oil. I was very pleased with the results and even happier to find that Grapeseed oil is one of the few oils that has an alkaline effect to the body, like olive oil, once it has been consumed.

Traditional sushi contains rice and fish. Neither are on my RAW foods diet, so I adapted (as usual) and made sushi we could all eat!

    I think the spicy orange avocado sauce would give it a nice kick! I’m not a big sushi person, but I know plenty of people who are.

    I have a cousin who is obsessed with sushi. I confess that I’ve never been brave enough to try it, but I’d like to some day.
