Vegetable Quinoa Temaki Sushi

Vegetable Quinoa Temaki Sushi step-by-step recipe |
"Temaki sushi or hand roll is easy-to-make traditional Japanese dish. You don't need a bamboo mat to prepare temaki sushi. Don't make temaki in advance as nori absorb moisture from the filling and become soggy."

Ingredients Serves 6

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 6 nori sheets (seaweed)
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 bunch arugula
  • 2.5 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds


  1. Cut nori sheets into half, rinse the vegetables and arugula, cut the cucumbers and bell pepper into long sticks.

  2. Cook quinoa: bring 2 cups of water to boiling, add quinoa, cover and simmer 15-18 minutes over low heat. Turn off the heat and let it stand with the lid for 5 minutes. Remove the lid, fluff. Cool quinoa, add soy sauce and mix thoroughly.

  3. Before you start, make sure that your hands are dry so the nory won't get soggy. Place nori sheet shiny side down and put a layer of quinoa on the left side of nori leaving the corners free.
