Surprisingly, you can actually integrate matcha green tea with your sushi, producing a unique combination of Japanese flavors.
So, forget about the chicken pasta or mac ‘n’ cheese for dinner tonight, and try something different! Grab your sushi mat and get ready to roll some fun.
This creative recipe has been put together by Ina Seyer froma @ina_goesfitdiary. Ina is 36 years old and lives in northern Germany.

Ina’s Vegan Avocado Matcha Sushi is super easy to make, but you do need a little patience when rolling the sushi. The Green Tea Sushi Roll combo consists of vegetables and tofu, creating a light dinner or lunch option. But if you would prefer to have your sushi with fish, you can always swap out some tofu for salmon.
