9 Vegan Sushi Recipes So Good You Can Finally Give Up Seafood
One of my favorite things about vegan sushi is that it offers delicious proof that sushi does not mean just raw fish.

If you are lucky enough to have access to them where you live, they are almost always super cheap too. The 7-ounce bundles I buy are typically about 50 cents!
