Zucchini Sushi Is The Healthy Refresh You Need

These little bites are reminiscent of a spicy California roll, but without the rice. They’re fresher, easier to make, and actually good for you. Win, win, win. 

Miss the rice? Make a sushi bowl instead!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp. sriracha
  • 1 tsp. lime juice
  • 1 c. lump crab meat
  • 1/2 carrot, cut into thin matchsticks

Zucchini Sushi

DIRECTIONS

  1. Using a vegetable peeler, slice each zucchini into thin flat strips. Place zucchini on paper towel-lined plate to sit while you prep the rest of your ingredients.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, Sriracha, and lime juice.
  3. On a cutting board, lay zucchini slices down horizontally (so that the long side is facing you). Spread a thin layer of cream cheese on top, then top the left side with a pinch each of crab, carrots, avocado, and cucumbers.
  4. Starting from the left side, tightly roll each zucchini slice. Sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving.
