Sushi Pizza with Miso Ginger Dressing

It’s probably a bad idea to discuss vomit on a food blog, right? Well sorry in advance, I’ll be brief. Josh was visiting friends in Syracuse, tried a new sushi restaurant called Saki Bomb and puked his brains out his entire drive home to Boston (sushi is Syracuse was never a good idea). Ever since, he hasn’t been able to walk by a sushi place without grimacing. Meanwhile my sushi cravings have worsened.

 

Then I was flipping through a recent issue of Food and Wine when I saw a recipe for “Japanese Pizza.” Sushi disguised as pizza! I set out to trick Josh into loving sushi again with a vegan and gluten-free version of this dish. And it worked.

 

This sushi pizza is super easy, healthy and versatile. Once you have your rice pizza crust, feel free to add any toppings you want. I find the mushrooms give the pizza hearty flavor and nice texture while the avocados add the creaminess that I love about traditional avocado rolls. You can serve this sushi pizza with simply soy sauce and pickled ginger, but I wanted to change it up a bit so I combined these flavors into one dressing. The miso ginger dressing brings some salty heat with a creamy cashew base; it would be perfect for a salad.

Thai Green Curry

One of the challenges of having a full-time job is figuring out what to bring for damn lunch. Lunch! Lunch has always been my least favorite meal. I never know what I want. I’m not much of a sandwich person and I get really sick of salads. Mostly because I tend to be lazy in my dressing choice, which ends up being balsamic vinegar  (too much) and some olive oil. Recently, I’ve been trying to make a big batch of something on Sunday that makes for really good leftovers: a one stop shop for the work week lunch. Last week, this Thai Green Curry was my solution. It’s simple, healthy, satisfying and extremely forgiving. Add any vegetables you have on hand, throw in a protein (chicken, shrimp, tofu, tempeh, etc.), maybe some rice or quinoa and you’re good to go. Lunch for the week: done.
