Paleo Sushi

I’m currently in the middle of 21 Day Fix Extreme and am loving the program so far but was craving a sushi night out.  So the solve?  A sushi night in!  I swapped the rice for cauliflower and picked up some sushi grade tuna at Whole Foods and it was YUMMY! This is great for a date night at home or with friends, because everyone can build their own rolls and have fun in the process. The recipe is Paleo, Whole 30, and 21 Day Fix approved!

Pro tip: pick up a sushi roller to make sure that everything is nice and tight if are worried about presentation.

Serves 2 (Makes 4 rolls)20150503-171054-61854767.jpg

  • 21 Day Fix Containers (per serving): 2 Green, 1 Red, 1 Orange, 1 Blue

Cauliflower Rice:

  • 1/2 Head of cauliflower
  • 1 T Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1 T Sesame Oil

“Rice” the cauliflower by chopping the head and placing it in a food processor & pulse or grate into a bowl. Heat sesame oil on high in a large frying pan, once hot add cauliflower and spread across the pan.  Pour rice wine vinegar on top and stir.  Cook rice for 3-5 minutes, set aside.20150503-171055-61855840.jpg


  • 4 Nori Sheets
  • 1/2 LB Raw Sushi Grade Ahi Tuna (or comparable sushi filling)
  • Other items for sushi (I use the below)
    • Avocado
    • Alfalfa Sprouts
    • Spinach Leaves
    • 1/2 Cucumber, sliced
  • Toppings (optional)
    • Sriracha Mayo20150503-171055-61855418.jpg
    • Liquid Aminos (Soy Sauce Substitute)
    • Sesame Seeds

Slice and cube the tuna and set aside.

Lay the Nori on a sushi roller or cutting board and spread a thin layer of the rice across 2/3 of the nori sheet.  Begin to layer the tuna, avocado, alfalfa, cucumber and spinach in a pile on the end with the rice.  Slowly and tightly roll the sushi, with the rice still warm it 20150503-171054-61854973.jpgshould stick, if not add water to the end of the roll to seal it. Repeat for the remaining 3 rolls.  With a very sharp knife, slice the sushi (6-8 pieces per roll).  Display on a plate, add toppings, and serve!
