VIDEO: Deconstructed Guac and Sushi!

Posted by


Hands down, the number one barrier to eating more fruits and vegetables I hear from folks is lack of time. So, I’m always trying to come up with time-sensitive ways to incorporate more plant-based foods into our diets. Enter these two deconstructed dishes–“guacamole” and “sushi!” The deconstructed guacamole can be made in about 3 minutes, and if you have rice on hand (which you should, now that you’ve mastered the baked brown rice from our grains video!), you can make the deconstructed sushi in about 2 minutes. These are both super quick to make … and are super flavorful (from the lime in the guac and the wasabi or sesame flavored roasted seaweed in the sushi). Check out this video short on how to make both in less time than it took you to read this post!
