Hello Quinoa Sushi Rolls! – A more protein packed alternative to white rice sushi

Hello Quinoa Sushi Rolls! – A more protein packed alternative to white rice sushi

I adore eating sushi.

I made a homemade healthier version with no white rice in sight.

Quinoa is a protein packed seed which is considered as a superfood.

To make quinoa sushi rolls, you will need:-

  • A packet of square nori seaweed sheets
  • 4 cups of cooked seasoned quinoa
  • Your favourite sushi roll items chopped into long thin strips where possible (I used cooked prawns, grated carrot, asparagus, fresh mint and coriander, low fat creamed cottage cheese)
  • Bamboo rolling mat (I managed to make these without one)
  • Cling wrap


  1. Put a layer of cling wrap on top of bamboo rolling mat and place a sheet of seaweed on top
  2. Spread cooked quinoa in a long thin line at one end of the square sheet
  3. Place a selection of your favourite sushi roll items on top of the cooked quinoa
  4. Roll the bamboo mat so that you make a tube with the seaweed with the quinoa and sushi roll items inside
  5. Dampen the end edge with some water so that the tube will stay in place once rolled
  6. Remove bamboo mat and cling wrap from under your sushi roll and use a sharp knife to slice up your roll
  7. Repeat until you have a pretty plate of quinoa sushi rolls!

Et Voila Quinoa Sushi Rolls without the white rice!

Until next time – stay happy and healthy!

I didn’t have a bamboo rolling mat but still managed to roll them up with cling wrap!


I added freshly squeezed lemon juice and cracked black pepper to the quinoa mixture before adding them to the sushi rolls!


Various ingredients in the fridge were used – just get creative! I experimented by adding to the quinoa:- fresh prawns, grated carrot, celery, asparagus, fresh herbs and creamed cottage cheese.
