Monday 14th August - From Spade to Plate, Vegetarian Sushi

Having some lovely Japanese and Korean friends, I decided to make some sushi with a difference. The vegetarian version, especially as there will be a few ingredients on my allotment that we can use to make an authentic Japanese/Dutch vegetarian sushi!

We  went to the allotment and picked: tomatoes, cucumbers, the first carrot of the season and a few bunches of lavender.

We spend a lovely morning making the sushi and lavender bags.

In addition we used

Smoked Courgettes (rather than smoked salmon)
Pickled cucumber
cream cheese
sesame seeds

June Picking lavender

Sarolta and Camila making lavender bags

June and Yuji harvested the lettuces from the back garden which we used to make a salad using the left over ingredients from the sushi making.
The sauce was oil, balsamic vinegar, whole grain mustard and a little sugar.
In addition to the vegetables,  I added walnuts and Gorgonsola dolce.
