Vegan Tofu Sushi Recipe - FAQ

Can I use other types of rice?

Sushi is usually made with “sushi rice,” also known as short or medium-grain white rice. You can try other types of rice in your sushi, like brown rice, but its lack of stickiness may make your roll fall apart. For the best results, use sticky white rice. 

Can I use other types of tofu?

Firm or extra firm are the only types of tofu that work here. Since they contain less water than soft and regular tofu, they won’t fall apart in the pan. Firm tofu also stays together in the roll better and won’t leave your sushi soggy. 

Do I need to press the tofu?

Yes, the tofu needs to be pressed before you cook so it can get nice and crispy in the pan. Even firm and extra firm still contains water that needs to be removed. Simply place your tofu block in a tofu press for 15 mins, or wrap it in some paper towel and press between two heavy plates for a few hours. 

Is this recipe vegan?

This recipe is 100% plant-based and contains no animal products. You can use regular mayo instead if you’re making it for vegetarians, though the vegan kind is just as good!

Storage Tips

You can save any leftover vegan tofu sushi rolls in an airtight container in your fridge for 3-4 days, and the pickled onions can stay sealed in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
