Get into keto sushi? Get ready!!! Keto sushi is actually tasty and is low carb and ketogenic. The best part is that it is easy to cook yourself. It is an exciting new way to obtain a healthy fat filled diet that is low in sugar and carbohydrates, and high in protein.
One of my favorite Keto-friendly foods is sushi. I love being able to eat sushi in a delicious way without worrying about the carbs or calories for that matter. For my Keto sushi recipes, I use avocado, cream cheese, and cucumber. How can you go wrong with this simple combination?
I’m a big fan of avocados and cream cheese, since they provide me with the fats I need for Keto sushi. My cucumber recipe uses a sugar substitute, which gives me the same benefits as eating fruit, but without most of the carbs. I’m not sure I’ve ever eaten sushi without cucumbers, but I’ve never tried it with avocado. Try it and see what you think!

Sushi has to be one of the top five things I’ve missed most since becoming keto. I’ve always wanted to try cooking keto sushi, but I assumed it would be difficult to recreate the traditional sushi taste without using rice. That was a huge mistake on my part! My only regret is that I didn’t make Sushi for Keto Diet during my first week on keto…and every week after that! This dish is quick and simple, and it works well as a substitute for conventional sushi if you’re a sushi fan. Give it a go.
Sushi Rolls on a Ketogenic Diet!
Check out the first dish from my weekend of Asian meals if you like Asian food as much as I do. I recreated Matt’s and my favorite meal from San Francisco to make this wonderful Cashew Chicken. I like learning about new cuisines.
I’ve discovered that if I devote a few weeks or months to one kind of cuisine, I can get a lot greater knowledge of how all the tastes interact and produce a few really outstanding meals. However, this keto sushi was born out of need. When you have a sushi hunger, there is nothing that can satisfy you.
How to Become a Sushi for Keto Diet Chef
The beauty of this recipe is you don’t need any! Of course, if you have a sushi mat definitely use that. We don’t have one, so I simply used plastic wrap to form the roll. It works great! Try our other awesome asian inspired keto recipes! One of our most popular is this easy cashew chicken recipe. We also have keto pad thai and for the vegetarians a spicy almond tofu!

- In a medium-high pan, heat the coconut oil and add the cauliflower rice.
- Cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the rice is slightly toasted and done. Put everything in a dish and put it aside.
- Set aside with cauliflower rice and thin pieces of avocado, cream cheese, and cucumber.
- Place a long sheet of plastic wrap on a clean, level surface, then place the nori wrapper on top.
- Spread cauliflower rice in an equal layer over the nori wrapper, as thin or thick as you want. Allow space around the borders.
- Place the avocado on the edge of the rice nearest to you first. Finally, immediately on top of the avocado, put the cream cheese, and then the cucumber.
- Lift the plastic wrap edge closest to you and cover the ingredients with your hands (so they don’t move/fall).
- Roll the avocado, cream cheese, and cucumber in the plastic wrap and nori wrapping until the whole item is wrapped.
- **Be careful not to roll the sushi in the plastic wrap. While rolling, gently peel the wrap away from the nori**.
- Cut the sushi into 8 pieces with a very sharp knife. TIP: Begin in the center to avoid the rice being pushed out by the knife’s pressure.
