Pre-paleo we used to eat sushi at least once a week! We absolutely LOVED it. If we ate the real thing today, our tummies would bloat and we’d probably be hungry within 5 minutes of finishing our meal (we know this from experience!). Instead, we’re going to show you how to make paleo sushi with cauli-rice! Yay! This recipe is from our very first eBook Let’s Eat Paleo which has over 50 recipes that are quick, easy and delish to get you healthy!

Emma + Carla
- 6 nori seaweed sheets
- ½ cauliflower cut into florets, grated
- 1 clove garlic crushed
- 2cm piece fresh ginger finely chopped
- 2 tbs. sesame oil
- 1 tbs. coconut aminos
- 1 tbs. coconut oil
- salt and pepper
- 1 full chicken breast cut in to strips
- 1 can of tuna in springwater (drained)
- 1 tbs. fresh dill finely chopped
- 1 carrot peeled, cut into matchsticks
- 1 cucumber cut into matchsticks
- 1 avocado sliced
- salt and pepper
- Preheat your oven to 180*C (350*F) and line a baking tray with baking paper.
- Place chicken strips onto the tray and season with salt and pepper.
- Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until cooked through, then allow to cool.
- Meanwhile, melt the coconut oil in a fry pan on medium heat. Add the garlic, ginger and cook for 2 minutes.
- Add the grated cauliflower and continue to cook for 10 minutes or until just soft.
- Take the pan off the heat and stir through sesame oil and coconut aminos, leave this to cool.
- In a bowl mix the tuna, dill, salt and pepper.
- Now it’s time to get your production line ready!
- Have all the ingredients out in front of you.
- Using a sushi bamboo rolling mat, place the nori sheet shiny side down.
- Add a cup of cauli-rice to the nori sheet spreading it out evenly. Cover the whole sheet, except for a 2cm gap across the top edge.
- At the bottom of the sheet, add horizontal lines of your desired ingredients. Some of our favourite combos are chicken, avocado and cucumber or tuna, dill, avocado and carrot!
- Now for the tricky part, holding onto the bottom edge of the mat, roll the sushi into a tight roll.
- Seal the roll by rubbing wet hands over the nori sheet.
- We told you this was tricky! Most nori sheets have a diagram to show you how to roll sushi or you can find lots of videos on YouTube!
