Plant Based Sushi

This detailed step-by-step plant based sushi burger recipe will not only open the doors of a heavenly taste for you, but you will also reveal the hidden chef in you with the recommendations at the end of the article. The kitchen is waiting for you.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


  • Tofu (1 block, Extra firm)
  • Sushi rice (1 cup, uncooked/raw)
  • Nori sheet (1 sheet)
  • Mango (Optional, cut into like apple slices)
  • Avocado (1/2, cut into slices like apple slices)
  • Cornstarch (2 teaspoons)
  • Cucumber (1, small size)
  • Teriyaki sauce (0.2 cup)
  • Sriracha Mayo (Vegan – 1 tsp each burger)
  • Sesame seeds


Step 1.

First of all, start by heating a large, but not too deep pan.
Fry the rice for a short time and then cook them.
Let the cooked rice rest for a while without opening the lid of the pot.

Step 2.

You can prepare the tofu while the rice is cooking and until they have finished their resting period.
Slice the tofu lengthwise into squares.
Each tofu slice for each burger.
Brush with cornstarch.
Fry in the air fryer for 12 minutes.

Heat: 400F

Dip the fried tofu in teriyaki sauce.
Sprinkle sesame seeds on top and keep them aside.

Step 3.

Divide the cooked rice into 4 equal parts and shape it into round patties in your hand.
(See the image below for a better understanding of how to shape them.)

Put the 4 rice buns that you have formed into round shapes into the air fryer.

Heat: 400F

Then spray some oil on them.
Fry until browned.
It will take about 15 minutes for this.

Tip: In this way, we will get 2 big sushi burgers, but if you want, you can get 5-6 small burgers by making smaller shapes from rice.

Step 4.

Peel the cucumber thinly with a peeler as in the image below:

Place the nori on it.
Then arrange the cucumber slices and a few finely chopped mango slices.
Finally, place the thinly sliced ripe avocados and complete the filling with some more Sriracha mayo.
Put the other rice bun on it and your plant based sushi is ready.

You can change the ingredients of your burger as you wish. Feel free to add anything you love.

Add greens and tomatoes as you wish.

Cut out the ones you don’t like from the recipe list.

If you are about to host a guest, cook more rice and create dozens of tiny sushi burgers, everyone will be amazed by them.

If you don’t have one, you don’t have to use an air fryer:

Continue with the same recipe after cooking the rice and shaping them. Sprinkle some black cumin seeds on top and they are ready to serve. 

If you don’t have an air fryer, you can also make crispy rice buns using an oven:

For making this, make sure they are baked carefully and don’t forget to turn the rice buns over while they’re baking.

If you don’t have sushi rice, don’t let that deter you from this recipe. Use any rice you want and enjoy your burger.

If you don’t want to use cornstarch, use xanthan gum instead.

The fact that the avocado is completely ripe will affect the taste of this sushi 100%. So if you have an immature avocado, you may want to consider cutting it off from the recipe list.

Before using as much soy sauce as a dip, make sure they are low in sodium for your health.

Feel free to share it with us in the comments to let us know what changes you’ve made to your sushi burgers.

Bon Appetit!
