Mock Sushi


I can’t believe its not tuna! The secret sushi filling is actually walnuts! This is a great healthy lunch option. Makes 8 serves.


  • Raw Nori Sheets
  • Half a head of green cabbage
  • Snow pea sprouts or sprouts of your choice
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 cucumber
  • Handful of coriander
  • 2 tablespoons tamari
  • Wasabi paste
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

 Walnut Tuna Ingredients:

  • 3 cups walnuts (soaked 4 hours then drained)
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons tamari
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cm piece of fresh ginger
  • 3 tablespoons minced parsley
  • Half a chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoon chopped dill
  • 2 tablespoon chopped basil
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds


Place all ingredients except the herbs, onion and sesame seeds into a food processor and process into a paste. You can add water in very small increments if it needs binding. Transfer to a mixing bowl. Stir in herbs, onion and sesame seeds. Mix well. Will keep in the refrigerator for 5 days.

To assemble:

Place a nori sheet siny side down on rolling mat or chopping board. Place a large flat piece of cabbage onto nori sheet so the edge of the cabbage is at the end of the nori sheet closest to you and covers the length of the nori sheet. Spread out walnut tuna mix right to the ends, make approximately 1 inch thick. Then add your sliced cucumber, dash of wasabi, tamari, lemon juice, sliced avocado, sprouts and coriander. Spread out along the length of the sushi roll.

Then carefully start rolling the sushi roll away from you, keeping pressure on so the contents remain tightly enclosed. Once you have completed the roll, leave about an inch of the nori sheet spare at the end and dab with water to moisten. Then roll to seal and slice with a sharp knife into bite sized pieces. Serve.
