Following a vegan diet doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a delicious sushi roll! Creative TikTok chefs have developed plenty of imaginative and, most importantly, delicious vegan sushi recipes. Whether you’re looking for a roll inspired by classic fish-based sushi or are interested in a truly unique vegan take on the popular Japanese dish, TikTok chefs have got you covered. Here are five delicious vegan sushi rolls from TikTok.
This vegan spicy tuna roll recipe uses boiled tomatoes in place of tuna. To make it, make a 1-inch cut in the skin of two tomatoes and boil them until the skin starts to peel. Then, transfer the tomatoes into a bowl of ice water. Once the tomatoes cool, remove the skin and dice them roughly, discarding the seeds and liquid parts. Place the tomatoes in a bowl, and add sesame oil, vegan mayonnaise, salt, coconut milk and sriracha. Strain out any excess liquid. Then add your spicy “tuna” to a nori sheet with rice and avocado.
If you’re a fan of fried foods, this vegan tempura heart of palm sushi is for you. Start by slicing hearts of palm in half. Then dip them in tempura batter mix, and fry in grape-seed oil. Next, spread rice on a nori sheet and place the fried hearts of palm on top. Top with vegan cream cheese and jalapeños. Then roll up your sushi, slice it, and garnish with vegan cilantro jalapeño mayonnaise and teriyaki sauce.
This vegan sushi roll is packed with delicious fruits and veggies. Start by spreading sushi rice on a sheet of nori. Then top with tofu, thinly sliced cucumbers, carrots, mango, avocado and green onion. Garnish with sesame seeds. Then roll up the sushi, slice it, and top with your favorite vegan mayonnaise.

Then place a banana on one edge of the tortilla, and wrap it up. Slice into pieces. Then dip each slice in melted chocolate, and coat in corn flakes. The finished dessert sushi should be sweet and perfectly crunchy!
