Raw Zucchini "Sushi" Rolls

  • ½ cup cashews, soaked overnight in water
  • 1 Tablespoon rice vinegar (optional)
  • 3 – 4 zucchini (each yields 6 – 8 slices)
  • 2 carrots, sliced into matchsticks
  • 1 cucumber, seeds removed and sliced into matchsticks
  • 4 medium radishes, sliced
  • 1 avocado, peeled and sliced
  • 1 small bunch cilantro
  1. Drain cashews and put into food processor with rice vinegar.
  2. Process, scraping sides with spatula if necessary, until cashews are a soft paste but still have some texture. (Depending on how long cashews were soaked you might need to add a tablespoon of water to get the right consistency.)
  3. Chop the ends off of your zucchini and use a vegetable peeler to peel your zucchini into long, thin strips.
  4. Lay zucchini strip flat and add a small spoonful of cashew mixture onto one of the ends of zucchini.
  5. Add a few matchsticks of veggies, avocado, and a couple of pieces of cilantro.
  6. Roll up and enjoy!

  1. They're so pretty! And they sound absolutely delicious, too. Definitely going to try these - thanks for the recipe!

  2. Can you make this with almond feta instead of cashew?

  3. I wanted to make these for a party but needed to make 100. So we prepped the night before and started to assemble the day of. Super labor intensive (probably accumulative 2-3 hours for prep and assembly). About half way through assembly I noticed the zucchini starting to get really wet. I stuck them in the fridge, but they are all just a soggy sad looking crew right now, a couple of hours before my guests will arrive. Not sure why. But off to the store I go for the old veggie tray stand by. Disappointed.

  4. I made these because they looked and sounded great - a nice change from the standard veggie platter. However the zucchini was SO RUNNY AND WET - nothing held together and everything was soggy. Awful and I would high discourage anyone from trying this.
