Whatever the reason for needing meat-free meals, these vegan sushi recipes are all incredible.

From simple veggies to sushi dupes, this list has it all. And they’re fantastic for lunch or dinner, and they’re also great for parties.

Seriously, everyone will rave about these vegan sushi recipes. 

1. Vegan Tomato “Tuna” Sashimi Bowl 

I love the idea of this sushi rice bowl. Rice bowls are always perfect for hot summer weather. 

Roma tomatoes are marinated in a mixture of flavorful ingredients.

You also add kombu dashi granules, which is an umami seasoning that will give the tomatoes a seafood-esque flavor. 

Then, the tomatoes are peeled and sliced. They sit on top of a bed or rice covered in nori seaweed. 

2. Veggie Salmon Sushi Roll 

If you want vegan sushi that looks like the real deal, check this out!

It uses vegan smoked salmon, and it looks incredible.

It’s basically cooked carrot slices marinated in a blend of yuminess. It’s not as soft as salmon, but it’s a fun alternative.

3. Sushi Bowls with Vegan Smoked “Salmon” 

Sushi bowls are a fantastic way to enjoy homemade sushi without all the assembling and rolling. Just throw everything in a bowl and enjoy!

This “salmon” is made from bell peppers and has a lovely smoked salmon flavor.

Transforming the bell peppers is easy but not quick. Do this part in advance for easy meal time preparation. 

4. Easy Avocado and Mango Sushi Roll 

Avocado and mango sushi rolls are not only vegan, but they’re low-carb, too!

These are made with cauliflower rice and don’t require any cooking. 

The creamy avocado and fruity mango complement each other so nicely.

Plus, the carrots, cabbage, and cucumbers add a wonderful crunch. 

Sushi rolls are perfect for a picnic lunch or easy dinner. 

5. Sesame Shiitake Sushi 

Shiitake mushrooms are fantastic because they soak up so much flavor.

These are sautéed in garlic and sesame. 

You won’t need anything else for this recipe other than rice and seaweed. The mushrooms hold their own and taste incredible!

6. King Oyster Mushroom “Fish” Nigiri Sushi 

King oyster mushrooms make an impressive fish substitute. You won’t even be able to tell they’re mushrooms at a glance. 

They’re cooked perfectly and the texture and flavor is amazing.

Although they don’t taste or smell like fish, this mushroom nigiri will satisfy that sushi craving. 

The Hawaiian salt, wasabi, scallions, and lime complete this nigiri with perfect flavors. 

7. Super Natural Vegan Sushi 

This is a vegan sushi recipe that is filled with flavorful and filling ingredients. 

It’s made with seasoned tofu, sweet potato fries, kale chips, avocado, and a delicious rice blend. It all comes together so nicely. 

Make some wasabi soy sauce to go along with this vegan sushi for the ideal sushi experience. 

8. Cleansing Sushi Roll with Spicy Kale and Green Veggies 

Cleansing sushi rolls are filled with spicy kale and green veggies.

This recipe doesn’t require any rice either, so it’s a great low-carb choice. 

This nutritious roll is full of kale dressed in spicy and creamy sriracha mayo.

Crunchy cucumber and delectable avocado are a perfect addition to this green sushi. 

9. Veggie Quinoa Sushi 

Quinoa sushi has a boost of protein that will keep you full and satisfied. 

Since quinoa isn’t very sticky, add miso paste to give it flavor and make it easier to roll.

The filling is a mixture of veggies: avocado, daikon radish, beets, and carrots. 

Sushi tip: use tamari for dipping if you need a gluten-free option. 

10. Avocado Sushi Rolls 

Avocado sushi rolls are simple yet delicious.

They’re loved by everybody since the ingredients are so straightforward. Even kids will adore these rolls. 

All you need is avocado, rice, and nori along with a few other pantry staples. These are delicious and crowd-pleasing. 

I love these as a side dish to a Japanese-style meal or even a quick lunch. 

11. Sweet Potato Sushi Roll 

Roasted sweet potatoes make a yummy sushi roll filling. 

Sushi rice and nori surround delicious sweet potatoes and make a great vegan roll.

Top it off with a drizzle of sriracha mayo for a creamy and spicy twist. 

The balance of sweet and spicy is terrific and these rolls will quickly become a favorite. 

12. Spicy Jackfruit Sushi 

Jackfruit is a unique fruit that has a meaty texture and a savory flavor. It’s often used to make vegan pulled pork. 

For this sushi, you’ll make a spicy filling for the rolls. Along with the jackfruit, add avocado, and vegan rice crispies. 

You’ll crave this spicy, creamy, and crunchy roll every week!

13. Vegan Sushi: Sriracha Coconut Sweet Potato and Quinoa 

Sriracha coconut sweet potato is good enough on its own. Add it to a vegan sushi roll for a special dinner that everyone will love.

Along with avocado, the coconut sweet potato fries make a flavorful sushi roll.

Using quinoa instead of rice makes this Japanese-inspired meal low in carbs with a boost of protein. 

14. Cauliflower Rice Sushi Rolls

I love this healthy version of sushi. These rolls are all veggies, which makes for a great vegan meal or snack.

Not only are these super healthy and packed with nutrients, but they taste great! The peanut butter sauce adds a flavor that is superb. 

All of the veggies can be customized. Use what you have and what you enjoy most! 

15. Bell Pepper “Akamai” Nigiri 

Sometimes, I find it so impressive that we can make dishes like this. Bell pepper becomes “tuna” in this recipe for Akamai nigiri. 

The roasted, sliced, and marinated bell pepper is a spectacular alternative to fish.

Wasabi gives the nigiri the perfect spice and contrast to the flavors of the pepper. 

16. Vegan Zucchini Quinoa Sushi Rolls 

Zucchini is a fabulous alternative to seaweed. It keeps the whole roll together and adds a nice crunch. 

The inside of this roll is filled with protein-packed quinoa, carrots, and avocado. It’s a crunchy, creamy, and truly unique roll. 

I guarantee this recipe will catch the attention of everyone around.

17. Rainbow Cucumber Sushi 

Cucumber sushi rolls are unbelievably quick and easy, and incredibly tasty. 

Instead of the traditional rice and seaweed roll, these are made with hollowed-out cucumbers. Inside, you’ll find a rainbow of colorful veggies. 

Plus, the avocado dip is the perfect way to add even more flavor to these low-carb, crunchy snacks.  

18. Spicy Carrot Lox and Avocado Sushi 

Carrot lox is salty and smoky, just like smoked salmon. But there’s no fishy flavor here, only yummy veggies. 

Together with a little spicy sriracha, the lox and avocado make a wonderful sushi roll.

The carrot lox is full of flavor and has great texture, while the avocado is creamy and delicious. 

19.  Spicy Vegan Scallop Roll 

Vegan scallops might not seem possible, but I assure you, they are!

These scallops are made with king oyster mushrooms. They have a fantastic texture and taste wonderful. 

With just the right amount of spice, these rolls make a perfect appetizer or meal. They’ll have you swimming with glee. 

20. Grilled Mushroom Vegan Sushi 

Grilled mushroom sushi has tons of flavor and it’s an affordable and delicious seafood swap. 

King trumpet mushrooms are meaty and the texture is divine.

With coconut aminos, ginger, and garlic, this “sushi” has that wonderful umami flavor that you crave. 

These would be perfect for any special occasion meal or dinner party.

21. Eggplant “Eel” Unagi 

Eggplant unagi is the perfect dish to make any time the sushi craving strikes. 

The texture of eggplant is ideal for recreating the meaty eel. The unagi sauce is integral to this recipe.

Unagi sauce and tender eggplant are a delicious duo. Try this recipe over rice, as nigiri, or in a rice bowl. 

22. Vegan Makizushi-Style Sushi 

The versatility of vegetables never ceases to amaze me.

The same veggies can be used in so many different dishes and taste completely different every time. 

Who would’ve thought that you can turn everyday veggies like cucumber, carrot, and celery into sushi?

These sushi rolls are classically delicious with a great crunch factor. 

23. Easy Vegan Sushi 

Easy vegan sushi rolls are full of protein and flavor. You won’t feel like you’re missing out when you’re enjoying this lovely meal. 

The tofu is firm and crispy on the outside while the avocado is creamy. Plus, cucumbers and carrots give the roll a nice crunch. 

24. Peanut Tofu Sushi 

Peanut tofu sushi is one of my favorite vegan sushi recipes. 

The tofu really soaks up a ton of the peanut sauce flavor. Pickled radishes give it a tangy crunch with a hint of spice. 

If you like Thai peanut sauce, you’ll love this sushi recipe. 

25. Vegan Sushi Rolls with Crispy Tofu 

Crispy tofu is incredible whether you’re vegan or not. You don’t even have to like tofu to enjoy it when it’s fried. 

These vegan sushi rolls are so easy to make. They’re vegan but have lots of protein thanks to the tofu. 

Don’t forget the spicy sriracha mayo for dipping!
