Brown rice Sushi salad
Sushi is one of my favorite things to eat and this quick and easy brown rice sushi salad is nothing but superb. A different take on sushi that still healthy and delicious.
I am one of those people that loves sushi and surprisingly enough my two and six year old can’t get enough of it. I tend to make sushi at home but the rolling of the rice and all can get a bit time consuming so today I decided to make a salad version instead!!
This Brown rice Sushi salad is a good alternative to rolling sushi and the result is still very good.
For those people that do not like raw sushi, I actually don’t give the raw part of things to my kids, adding cooked shrimp, cooked chicken or just vegetables it is a great alternative. Any protein of choice will pretty much work here. Next time I make this Brown rice Sushi salad I will try it with fried organic tofu.
This Brown rice Sushi salad is also very versatile as you can add or omit ingredients to your liking. This is a great refreshing salad perfect for the up coming warmer days so I hope you get to try it.

When the rice is cooked through place it in a big bowl. Add all of the remaining ingredients and combine with a spatula. Serve.
Adding organic soy beans and pickled ginger it is also really good on this.
