  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked for at least 4 hours
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Nori sheets
  • Assorted veggies (carrots, cucumber, avocado, bell pepper, etc.)
  • Wasabi (optional)
  • Soy sauce or tamari, for dipping


  1. Drain the soaked cashews and rinse well. Add them to a food processor along with the rice vinegar, maple syrup, soy sauce or tamari, toasted sesame oil, water, and salt. Process until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides as needed.

  2. Lay a sheet of nori on a clean surface with the shiny side facing down. Use a spoon or spatula to spread a thin layer of the cashew mixture over the nori, leaving a small border at the top.

  3. Add your desired veggies in a line on top of the cashew mixture. If using wasabi, spread a small amount on top of the veggies.

  4. Use your fingers to tightly roll up the sushi, starting from the bottom and rolling towards the top. Wet the top border of the nori with a bit of water to help it stick together.

  5. Repeat with the remaining nori sheets and filling. Use a sharp knife to slice the sushi into rounds.

  6. Serve with soy sauce or tamari for dipping. Enjoy!

Note: You can get creative with the veggies you use - feel free to mix and match to find your perfect combination.
