Quinoa sushi with an austrian twist


Since sushi is one of my all-time favorite foods and I could literallly eat several servings every single day, I figured out a healthy recipe that makes it possible for me to do exactly that 😉 

Here is what you need

  • 3-4 Sheets of nori ( I particularly like the sushi-nori by Ruschin Makrobiotik)
  • 1 1/2 Cups of cooked quinoa ( find the instructions on how to cook quinoa here)
  • Chilli powder 
  • 1 Pepper/ Cucumber/ Avocado – whatever floats your boat
  • Himalayan sea salt 
  • Pumpkin seed oil ( optional)  
  • Balsamic vinegar 


# Season cooked quinoa with salt and chilli and then spread the quinoa thinly over the nori sheet but leave about an inch clear at the bottom.

# Make sure you don’t use too much quinoa and leave room for it to expand when rolled.

Lay out your chosen filling in a thin line across the sheet and start rolling from the top. 

# When it is rolled use a bit of water to make the nori sheet stick.

# Take a sharp knife and slice 1 inch rounds.

# For the austrian twist drizzle a bit of pumpkin seed oil and balsamic vinegar on it. Done!
