This is a really easy and yummy way I’ve been combining my grain and fat serving lately. I don’t really want to call it sushi, because it’s so easy and sloppy that it feels like an insult to sushi to call it that.
I use just 4 ingredients. Rice, avocado, a nori (seaweed) sheet, and store-bought furikake seasoning. Some furikake seasoning blends have sugar, but the brand shown below (Eden Shake) has none, and it’s totally BLE friendly. I get the seasoning, nori, and sushi rice at my regular big grocery store in the Asian foods section. An Asian market will definitely have them.
I usually complete this meal with a side of beans as my protein (I’ve been loving plain beans cooked from scratch in the Instant Pot with nothing but salt on them) and a big pile of roasted veggies. Boom, dinner’s ready!
