For Earth Day: Recycle Roasted Vegetables into…Sushi!

In honor of Earth Day, I thought I’d share one of my favorite ways to “recycle.” It’s by using leftover ingredients to make a new meal. The key to never wasting leftovers is to use them up quickly instead of letting them languish in the fridge. Many times, whatever you have on hand might inspire you to make something even better than it was originally. Take the sushi pictured above. I made it using leftover roasted asparagus and carrots as the filling. I never would have thought of using roasted vegetables as sushi fillings had I not had them on hand. I love the extra flavor the roasted veggies brought to the sushi rolls. It made a great lunch and there were no leftovers!

Speaking of Earth Day, the food section in my local newspaper ran an article today that, to me, epitomizes what’s wrong with the “green movement.” The “green” tip was to pound meat thin to reduce the cooking time! What part of “animal agriculture is destroying the environment” do these people not understand? Veganism is the ultimate way to go green – we vegans put our environmentalism where our mouths are!
