Avocado Vegetable Sushi Roll Recipe

Epoch Health | by John Immel | August 28, 2023

Create your own personalized sushi rolls at home! It’s not as difficult as you may think, and this variant adds an exciting flare, as the traditional nori sushi roll is replaced with collard leaves. It gives a fresh, crisp feel to the dish, and the vibrant green brightens up your plate.

Servings: 4
Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 20 min


  1. Prepare collard leaves by cutting and removing stem, washing, and setting aside to dry.
  2. Rinse rice (for best results, use short grain or sushi rice) in a sieve until it runs clear, transfer to pot, and cook with 1 cup of boiling water and heat on low for 20 minutes.
  3. Julienne squash and carrots, shred cabbage, and slice avocado.
  4. Divide ingredients across two collard leaves by layering sushi rice followed by vegetables, sliced avocado, and a squeeze of lime and soy sauce.
  5. Tuck in the top and bottom of the collard greens and roll into a log shape (sushi roll).
  6. Slice into bite-size sushi pieces and enjoy.

Serve this alfresco at your next picnic, or bring some with you to the park for bite-sized savory snacks for you and the kids.
