Tofu & veggie sushi burritos! A fun take on the classic sushi roll made with a plant-based twist. This recipe was made in partnership with the USA Rice Federation, but all opinions are my own.
Veggie Sushi Burritos
These veggie filled sushi burritos are truly such a fun meal to make. They’re essentially an extra-large sushi roll, but easier to make and roll if you’re making them at home.
I filled them with U.S.-grown sushi rice, baked tofu, a rainbow of vegetables and a homemade spicy mayo sauce. The flavors are so delicious, and a great way to pack in plant-based protein.
National Rice Month
Rice is such a huge staple in more than half of the world’s diets, and can be prepared in endless amounts of ways. I made this recipe in partnership with the USA Rice Federation for National Rice Month, which is a celebration of the U.S. rice industry, including its farmers, producers and manufacturers through the month of September.
Purchasing rice grown in the U.S not only helps support local growers, but also helps reduce your food miles.
This recipe is one of my favorites yet, combining some of my go-to flavors.
Rice has always been a pantry staple in our household growing up. Mostly all our meals were catered around it since it can be used in so many different ways.
Rice packs in more than 15 essential vitamins and minerals, including potassium, magnesium, folic acid and B vitamins. It’s also naturally free of sodium, cholesterol and gluten.
It’s affordable, shelf-stable, and a great boost of energy and whole-grains.
