This recipe is influenced by one of my favorite dishes, sushi. It has many of the signature components of sushi but requires less artistry to make, especially when you can cook all the components at once in the Ninja Speedi.

Tip: Don’t have quick-cooking brown rice? Substitute with quinoa! If gluten-free, use gluten-free soy sauce/tamari.
