Sushi Burger (Vegan + Gluten-Free)



  • 1 cup  sushi rice, cooked
  • 1/4 cup  rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp.  sugar
  • 1 tsp.  salt
  • 1 Tbsp.  coconut oil
  • 1 clove  garlic, crushed
  • 1/3 cup  tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp.  mirin
  • 1 Tbsp.  brown sugar
  • 1 cup  shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2  avocado
  • 1 tsp.  wasabi or wasabi powder
  • 1 tsp.  vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp.  Sriracha
  • Pickled ginger, to taste
  • Shredded red cabbage, to taste
  • Black sesame seeds, for garnish


  • In a bowl, mix together the rice, vinegar, sugar, and salt, then refrigerate.
  • Combine the coconut oil, garlic, tamari, mirin, and brown sugar in a small pot or skillet. Add the mushrooms and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes over low heat.
  • Mash the avocado and wasabi together in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Mix together the vegan mayo and Sriracha. Set aside.
  • Wet your hands and the inside of a small bowl with some water. Pack 1/2 cup rice into the bottom of the bowl as tightly as possible. Flip over and gently tap the bottom until the rice “bun” pops out. Repeat with the remaining rice.
  • Spread the wasabi-avocado mixture on one of the “buns.” Then top with the mushrooms, Sriracha-mayo mixture, ginger, and shredded cabbage.
  • Place the other “bun” on top and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
  • Enjoy with chopsticks. This one’s messy!

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
