Our first date as a couple was to a great little sushi place in Pittsburgh. We’ll always have fond memories of that date, though when we want to revisit the flavors we make this great rice-free version instead.

      What a clever recipe! I made this with a few variations (made it more Korean style sushi) and it turned out great. Though it’s hard to beat rice, the cauliflower substitute worked very well.

      I made this the other day, however the nori did not work well for me and I ended up calling it deconstructed sushi. Overall delicious though, and for the first time the cauliflower tasted really good.
