  • 1 sheet kombu
  • 1 tbsp gluten-free soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 dried shiitake mushrooms
  • 2 liters water

Vegan ginger and lime aioli ingredients:


  • ¼ cup Elan Organic Raw Cashews
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp fine Mediterranean sea salt
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 3 tbsp, rapeseed oil




  1. In a food processor, blend all ingredients together.


Additional ingredients:


  • ½ courgette, diced in small cubes
  • 1 avocado, diced in small cubes
  • 1 bunch mint, picked
  • 1 container pea shoots
  • 1 lime, quarters
  • 8 nori sheets


Method for rolling:


  1. Prepare a rolling mat by laying it flat on a chopping board and placing a piece of cling film on top. Put a nori sheet in the center of the mat.
  2. Spoon two tablespoons of rice horizontally across the closest edge of the nori sheet. Top rice with sweet potato, courgette, avocado and picked mint.
  3. Firmly grasp the cling film and rolling mat, gently rolling towards self, keeping the roll tight and ensuring to unstick the cling film in the process. When one inch of nori remains untucked, brush with water and squeeze to seal.
  4. Place the finished roll on a chopping board and repeat steps 1 to 3 until 8 rolls are completed. With a sharp knife, slice each roll into 6 pieces and lay on a serving plate.
  5. Garnish with pea shoots and drizzle generously with ginger and lime aioli. Place lime segments on the side.
