The Vegetable Sushi CookbookBook - 2016 | First edition
The Vegetable Sushi Cookbook is the brainchild of Izumi Shoji, a hugely popular blogger in Japan, who shares her expertise in taking a wide variety of vegetables and transforming them into delicious and healthy sushi meals. Each recipe has been chosen for its nutritious ingredients and delightful taste, and is easy to make with basic cooking skills and no special tools. If an ingredient might be difficult to find in some areas, Shoji provides suggestions for alternatives. The author covers the entire range of sushi dishes, from nigiri-zushi (the familiar fish-atop-rice style) to maki-zushi (rolled sushi) and chirashi-zushi (scattered sushi). Readers will also find the oshi-zushi style, a favorite in the Osaka area. In addition, Shoji explains in great detail, and with many photographs, the various methods of preparing vegetables for use in sushi dishes, from grilling and frying to steaming, simmering, and pickling.
