  • Slice the cucumber on each end, then place the cucumber upright and slice off each side. You want to discard the middle and slice about 2 side pieces into small strips. Set aside in the fridge.

  • In a very hot pan, add cauliflower rice and cook. Season with soy sauce as the cooking process happens, about 1 tbsp.
    mixing the rice in a bowl
  • Once the cauliflower is finished up and dried out some, add to a bowl with cream cheese and rice vinegar (1-2 tbsp. depending on how seasoned you want it to taste). Mix together well and set in the fridge until cool.
    Making the rice for sushi
  • Once the rice mixture is cooled, slice 1/2 an avocado into small strips and scoop out of the shell.

  • Put a nori sheet down on a bamboo roller covered with saran wrap (this helps with sticking). Spread some of the cauliflower rice mixture over the nori sheet, leaving about 3/4 inches of space at the top. Make sure this is quite a thin layer.
    Laying out the rice on the seaweed wrapper
  • Place all of the filling items into the sushi roll, layering whichever flavors you want.
