Vegan Sweet Sushi

Normally, you know us for vegan comfy food: Langos, cheese spaetzle or gnocchi are just a few examples. Today we show you not a classic recipe, you already know but a recipe that turns a savory dish into a sweet one.

We first time got in touch with sweet sushi by searching for a dessert, not so many people already know. We instantly liked the idea of interpreting a savory dish entirely new! So we made salmon and tuna out of strawberries and kiwi, soy sauce of melted chocolate, ginger of cooked pears and wasabi of matcha and cream cheese. That's a bit absurd, but it tastes so good.
