On Friday, I went to a food demonstration that took place at The Hoxton in Shoreditch, and tried my hand at making vegan sushi! The class was delivered by the ladies behind the The Redemption Bar, a health conscious and alcohol free restaurant/ bar..
To make the sushi, we used quinoa as the base, and filled them with mushrooms and vegetables. The quinoa was made beforehand and had a subtle ginger taste. Considering that this was the first time I made sushi, I was really impressed with the results and will definitely be making some at home soon!
I also learnt an interesting fact, but maybe I'm a bit late on this. Carrots were not originally orange; they were a purple colour before the introduction of the orange pigment by the Dutch.
Once we finished making the sushi, there was a mini tasting session, after which I can say that I am going to be even more conscious of what I put into my body. The Redemption Bar ladies whipped up some almond milk served with raw chocolate balls. After tasting the milk, I am considering making my own or buying from an independent brand that sells the real thing. Apart from the fact that the milk is easy to make, it was lighter and tasted really different from the high street brands.
