  • 2 tsp (10 mL) maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) vegan mayo
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) hot sauce
  • 6 sheets nori
  • 2 cups (500 mL) baby spinach
  • 1 cup (250 mL) julienned English cucumber
  • 1 cup (250 mL) julienned carrot
  • 1 cup (250 mL) julienned red cabbage
  • 1 cup (250 mL) julienned apple
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • ½ cup (125 mL) store bought fried onions

Directions
  1. In a medium bowl, stir together hot rice, vinegar, mirin, and salt.
  2. In a non-stick skillet, sauté tofu with oil, soy and maple over medium heat for 4-5 minutes until dried and firm. Let cool; combine in a bowl with mayo and hot sauce.
  3. Lay 1 sheet nori rough side facing up, break another sheet into quarters; wet middle edges of left and right side of nori and overlap with 1 quarter piece on each side. This will help seal the ends of the burrito. With wet fingers, spread 1 cup rice evenly over nori sheet leaving the top and bottom ½” inch as well as the 2 extra side pieces clean. Arrange ½ cup spinach leaves in centre; top with ¼ cup each cucumber, carrot, cabbage, apple, ¼ tofu, ¼ avocado, 2 tbsp fried onions, 1 tbsp pickled ginger, 1 tbsp green onion, 1 tsp tahini and 1 tsp teriyaki sauce. Roll from bottom up tucking inside pieces halfway into roll. Burrito should sit seam side down. Slice burrito in half with a wet knife. Repeat steps to make 4 burritos.
