Fillings for the Cucumber Sushi Rolls

Here I have used a typical canned tuna recipe that is spicy, creamy and high protein! But honestly, you could use any filling of choice! Some of my favourites are smoked salmon, sushi grade salmon, tofu, tempeh and so much more! Avocado also adds a delicious creaminess, and these rolls are so easy you could even make a variety of flavours and enjoy!

Volume Eating Sushi

What is your favourite sushi order? Min is usually sashimi, edamame, miso soup and then a few pieces of actual sushi! I find this not only helps give me volume, but is equally as delicious without leaving me nauseas and over bloated. 

When i discovered this low carb cucumber sushi, I now order two plates of it in addition to my usual order! Honestly, it tastes SO delicious, you wont even miss the rice

How to make the Cucumber Sushi Rolls:

Step 2: Add your Fillings and Roll Up

On the edge of one of your ribbons, place about a teaspoon of your filling. Roll it up forming a delicious cucumber roll. You may want to stick a toothpick through it to help it hold! I didn’t need to, but some people find it struggles to hold. There you have it, your cucumber sushi rolls!
