I suppose vegan sushi is an oxymoron, kinda like when I spread humus and salsa between two tortillas, toast it on the skillet, and call it a quesadilla. "It's called queso," my husband informs me. "Meaning CHEESE!" Fine, but beanodilla just doesn't have the same ring.

Personally, I prefer the term "vegan sushi" to "rolls" because the latter always conjures up images of doughy balls of dinner bread, not raw slices of cucumber and avocado rolled up in seaweed and rice with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and nearly translucent slivers of ginger.

  • Jackalope Grill's Women Tasting Wine is Awesome this Month

    Sometimes Bend is flush with dining events, making me wish I had buckets of cash to blow on food and wine. Actually, I pretty much always wish I had buckets of cash, but sometimes the desire is especially great.
