You may have to wait a few days for the sushi to arrive at your house.
But that’s ok, because the sushi is vegan.
In a recent episode of the Esquire Magazine, the chef behind the popular Momofuku Majordomo restaurant in Tokyo explains how to make vegan sushi.
“The sushi comes from our chefs’ personal preferences, but I have always made vegan sushi,” says the chef, who goes by Momofu.
“But I think people will be impressed by my simplicity, because it’s a simple recipe.
It doesn’t need much.
It takes just two ingredients and it’s easy to prepare.”
He adds that there are only a few ingredients that he prefers to use in vegan sushi: rice, soy sauce, and fish sauce.
To make a vegan sushi, you simply boil the ingredients for a couple of minutes and then let them cool.
Momofusu then takes them out of the fridge and steams them.
The rice is then cooked in a saucepan to soften it and add some sweetness.
The soy sauce is added later, as a condiment.
“After steaming, it becomes like tofu,” Momofuk says.
He says that the taste is similar to tofu.
“You get a little bit of the tofu, but you also get a lot of the other flavorings.”
Momofufu says that his restaurant’s vegan sushi was a hit with guests, so he’s making it again soon.

If you don’t have a vegan chef, you can use a tofu-based marinade or vegan sauce.
“It’s delicious,” Momo says.
Momo’s vegan marinadise uses tofu instead of soy, and it also uses only rice, fish sauce, vinegar, and salt.
You could also substitute the soy sauce for lemon juice or wine vinegar.
You don’t need to worry about the fish sauce or vinegar getting rancid, since the soy is the main ingredient.
You’ll want to add a little extra oil to get it to melt in your mouth.
Momohuku says that when he makes vegan sushi with his new technique, he makes it in advance to make sure the rice and sauce are done when it arrives.
He uses the recipe for vegan rice on his website, but the rice he uses is a regular rice, so it can be substituted if you prefer.
