Unicorn rainbow sushi: Vegan MoFo
The Indigo Kitchen's recipe because it used all natural food colours. The most fun was cooking the purple cabbage to make a purple liquid. Part of this was mixed with bicarb and it was amazing to see it turn blue. Unfortunately the vinegar in the sushi seasoning also reacted with the blue and made it a bit less blue. I was also disappointed with my green colour compared to all the rest.

How I made unicorn rainbow sushi
(as inspired by The Indigo Kitchen - I highly recommend checking out this post)
Cook sushi rice. I usually do 1 cup sushi rice in 1 1/2 cups water, cover, bring to the boil in a small saucepan and then turn heat to lowest possible and simmer 15 minutes and leave another 5 minutes. I got overambitious and made 3 cups of sushi rice which was a ridiculously large amount and we didn't need that much.
I had 6 bowls into which I put 1 cup each of hot cooked sushi rice.
Into each bowl I put in 2 tbsp sushi seasoning and the following colours
Purple - I boiled about 1-2 cups of chopped cabbage for 10 min in about 1 cup water and used about 1-2 tbsp of the water.
Blue - I mixed 1 tbsp of cabbage water with 1 tsp of bicarbonate of soda
Green - I tried sieving a couple of handfuls of baby spinach after microwaving to wilted but not green enough and then I used 1-2 tsp of kale powder which was too murky. Next time maybe spirulina or other green powders
Yellow - 1/4-1/2 tsp turmeric
Orange - 1/4 tsp turmeric and a smudge of tomato paste (or more tomato paste but go easy on it)
Red - 1/2 tsp beetroot powder and a smudge of tomato paste
Place a sheet of nori on a sushi mat (if you have one) and lay lines of each colour rice along the mat. Roll up and cut into smaller pieces. I used about 4-5 sheets of nori.
