  • 1 small Japanese sweet potato (white flesh), peeled
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • ¼ avocado, sliced thinly

  • Coconut aminos for serving
  • Roughly chop sweet potato. Place in blender or food processor and pulse until diced into rice-sized pieces.
  • Heat coconut oil over medium heat in a large pan. Add sweet potato rice, stir to coat in oil, then cover and let steam for 2-3 minutes until just cooked through. Spread on a plte, and let sit in fridge for 15 minutes to cool down enough to handle.
  • Place nori sheet on a flat surface. Spread sweet potato rice to cover nori. Leave a ½ inch space on the side closest to you, to make rolling easier. Press down with the back of a spoon.
  • Layer avocado slices and carrot horizontally across the sweet potato rice, no more than 1-inch thick. Sprinkle with sea salt or dulse.
  • Roll the sushi starting with the side closest to you until the seam side faces down. Slice with a sharp, serrated knife. Serve with coconut aminos for dipping.
