Hello Gorgeous! This instagram-worthy black rice sushi is easy to make and packs well for a brown bag lunch that may spur office lunch-envy.
Black rice is more nutritious than either white or brown rice. It contains more antioxidants, fiber, and protein per cup. Plus, it’s inky black hue comes from anthocyanins, powerful flavanoids that various studies suggest may offer protection against cardiovascular disease and even cancer.
You can fill the center with what ever veggies your heart desires, but I chose these because the vibrant pop of color makes me happy. The pink is from watermelon radish, orange from carrots, and green from cucumber.
You can make different variations by adding sprouts, jicama, avocado, or bell peppers.
A lunch that looks good, tastes good, and keeps you healthy? Yes please!
