Sweet Potato Tempura Roll

Cooking Time - 30


  • 1/2 cup black jasmine rice

  • 1/2 cup sushi rice

  • 1 1/2 cup water

  • 4 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup

  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and sliced

  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs

  • 1/4 cup flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • pinch of salt

  • 1/3 cup almond milk

  • 1 avocado (1/2 for filling - 1/2 for coating)

  • 1 small cucumber, julienned

  • 1 small carrot, julienned


  1. Cook your sushi rice according to instructions on the package and let cool down.

  2. Slice the sweet potato into strips. Preheat your oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In one bowl, combine breadcrumbs, flour, spices and salt and whisk together. In another bowl, place the milk. Dip each strip into the milk, then breadcrumb mixture, then milk and again breadcrumb mixture and then transfer onto the baking sheet. Place in the oven bake at 350°F for 30 minutes until crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

  3. Prepare the veggies for the filling. Slice the avocado thinly and cut the carrot and cucumber in slices.

  4. Take half a nori sheet and place it on a bamboo mat. Place ½ cup of the sushi rice on top and gently press down (wet your hands for easier handling). Carefully turn the nori sheet around so the empty side looks up. Add the filling ingredients (carrot, cucumber, sweet potato, cream cheese) and use the bamboo mat to roll up the sushi roll.

  5. Take the avocado slices and spread it on top of the sushi roll. Use a piece of plastic film to cover the roll. Use the bamboo mat to gently press the avocado in shape, then remove plastic foil and cut into slices.

Caramel Popsicle

Serves - 4 Ingredients For the Caramel sauce:

  • 8.8 ounces granulated sugar

  • 2.82 ounces rice milk

  • 1.4 ounces margarine/vegetable fat of your choice

  • pinch of salt

For the Popsicle:

  • 1.75 ounces rice milk

  • 3.5 ounces water

  • 2.82 ounces caramel sauce


  1. Caramelize the sugar in a tall saucepan. In the meantime, swirl the pot slightly, but do not stir, otherwise the sugar will start to clump. Once the sugar has melted and turned into a liquid, golden-brown caramel, remove it from the heat.

  2. Boil 2.82 ounces of rice milk with vegetable fat. As soon as the fat has completely melted, stir into the hot caramel in portions. Be careful, the mass is very hot and bubbles during this process!

  3. Salt the resulting caramel sauce a little. Pour into a bowl and let cool completely for a few hours.

  4. Mix the popsicle mixture. Stir in 2.82 ounces of the cooled caramel sauce. If the caramel does not dissolve, heat the mixture and stir.

  5. Pour Ice base in four Ice molds (also called Popsicle molds) and freeze overnight.

  6. Cover and let the rest of the caramel sauce stand at room temperature.

  7. Carefully remove the ice cream from the molds and drizzle with the remaining caramel sauce.
