Vegan Halloween Sushi (An Adorable Halloween Treat! 🎃👻)

Getting into the spirit of Halloween, I have made some savory treats inspired by temari sushi. The vivid colors in this sushi come from the pumpkin, cucumber, and carrots. The rice and pumpkin are a comforting combination, and the vegetables keep it wholesome and light. These cute sushi balls are easy to make, chill, and serve for Halloween. Bone appetit! 💀

Directions

1. Rinse the rice until no starch appears. Fill up the rice cooker and set to steam for the next 20-30 minutes.
2. Cut the pumpkin into chunks. Peel.
3. Place the pumpkin on baking paper and bake for 20 minutes.
4. While the pumpkin is baking, peel long, thin strips of the cucumber and carrot.
5. Mash the pumpkin finely using a fork/potato masher. When the rice is done, gradually add the salt, sugar, and rice vinegar. Then gradually mix rice into the pumpkin.
6. Form the sushi balls! Let your creativity shine 🙂 This is what I did for the themed sushi pieces:
Pumpkin (bird’s eye view): I arranged cucumber strips on a pumpkin and made leaf cut-outs from cucumber. You can place the pumpkin on cucumber strips to create a pumpkin patch 🙂
Halloween Ghost: I wrapped the pumpkin in cucumber, then added a spooky smile which I cut out from a carrot piece.
Pumpkin: Create a pumpkin patch using strips of cucumber. Add a ball of pumpkin rice. Arrange three strips of carrot on top, along with cucumber leaf slices.
Pumpkin patch: Create a rectangular shape from pumpkin rice. Weave the cucumber and carrot strips together and wrap around the rice. Add cucumber leaves to show little growing pumpkins.
Coffin: I shaped the rice into a coffin, wrapped the bottom in cucumber and added a carrot gravestone.
