When you knock out rice from your diet, it can feel like you’ve actually built a roadblock. After all, how will you ever eat sushi on a grain-free diet?

With this easy-to-follow recipe, you’ll please – and surprise – dinner guests. Plus, you’ll be able to keep your eating habits headed in the right direction.

6 Riceless Sushi Rolls on Plate with Bowl of Coconut Aminos & Chopsticks |


1 small head organic cauliflower
1 large, ripe avocado
1 small lemon, juiced
4 sheets Nori
1 lb. wild sashimi-grade ahi or salmon, sliced

1 Tbsp. sesame seeds
1 tsp. fresh ginger, grated



  1. Using a food processor or food mill, grate cauliflower.
  2. In a large, flat dish, mash cauliflower with avocado.
  3. Add lemon juice and mix until well combined. (This will help delay browning of the avocado.)
  4. Lay Nori sheets flat on a baking sheet.
  5. Divide cauliflower-avocado mixture into four sections. Scoop mixture onto one side of each Nori sheet, leaving a small border.
  6. Lay raw fish on top of cauliflower-avocado spread, sprinkle with sesame seeds and top with grated ginger.
  7. Using a sushi mat lined with plastic wrap, tightly roll up Nori sheets.
  8. Cut into sushi rolls and serve immediately.
  9. Serve with liquid coconut aminos in place of soy sauce.
