DIY Vegan Sushi

Many fish used for food are raised on aquafarms, where they are crammed into tight enclosures with little room to move and kept in filthy conditions. Make the compassionate decision to save a fish’s life, and enjoy faux-fish and veggie sushi rolls!

Most sushi restaurants offer a variety of vegetable rolls, edamame, marinated tofu, miso soup, and salads. (No matter what you order, be sure to ask your server plenty of questions to verify that your selection doesn’t contain any animal-derived ingredients.) Many restaurants are getting more creative with their vegan offerings, substituting seitan and tempeh for seafood.

Step outside your comfort zone and try your hand at rolling your own sushi creations at home with these awesome vegan sushi recipes:
