Hello my boyfriend and I are going to (try to) make vegan sushi tomorrow and I was wondering if you had any ideas to put in there except advocado and cucumber. I've tried googling some ideas but most of them are advocado, cucumber and paprika(which I am allergic to) Thanks already. :)

I get firm tofu, marinade it in whatever you like really, i do different styles and either grill, fry or bake it in thin strips that can fit inside the rolls. Spicy peanut, soy ginger, hoisin garlic, etcetc. Pickled cucumber, carrot, green onion, and red pepper (sugar or agave, rice vinegar, rice seasoning). Sauces like japanese bbq sauce, peanut sauce, spicy mayo (veganaise, sriracha and onion powder mixed) or whatever, toasted sesame seeds, avocado, green onions raw not pickled, peanut butter, fried boca chicken patties cut into strips, pickled ginger, grilled or sauteed shitake mushrooms, tempeh or seitan marinated and fried in strips, the possibilities are endless with sushi.

Experiment, mix and match, invent, NOTHING is off limits.

I’ve seen vegan PIZZA sushi with mozzarella, basil and tomato sauce (ew, but you get the idea)

Making sushi is fun, sometimes messy, always rewarding and a perfect chance to be a mad scientist and try all sorts of crazy combos, put all your ingredients in front of you and create all sorts of interesting combinations.

Super simple vegan (& also gluten-free) cheese sauce!
I’ve had a lot of inquiries about my mac & cheese recipe lately, so I figured I’d share it with all of you. This cheese sauce is excellent for nachos, seitan cheesesteaks, mac & cheese, and is an awesome base for queso dip (just add a jar of salsa!). 
1 cup vegan sour cream (I like Vegan Gourmet brand)
1 cup vegetable broth
1 (2-cup) bag of Daiya cheddar style shreds
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
fresh parsley, chopped (to taste)
In a saucepan, whisk all ingredients together and bring to a boil. Lower heat to a simmer and continue to whisk until the cheese shreds are as melted as they can get. 
When using this sauce for mac & cheese, it will appear to smooth out and look less lumpy once it is incorporated in with the pasta.
