It so happened that this rainbow sushi recipe is very popular among sushi lovers that make their own rolls
Often these recipes involve all natural coloring
For example, the Instagram user Letscook Vegan likes to use beet powder for those red food coloring
Beet powder and turmeric is used to achieve these red and orange colors
Turmeric is also used to get that strong yellow color
For green, use a touch of spirulina and a pinch of turmeric
For blue and purple it gets tricky, so here are his own words:
” “boil 1/4 piece of chopped cabbage in about 3 cups of water for about 30 minutes or until you’re left with about 1 cup of water. Use this water to cook 1/2 cup of sushi rice and save about 3 tbsp of the purple water to make the blue food colouring. Now you’ve got your purple rice use some of the remaining white rice you made to make blue. Add about 1 tsp of baking soda to the purple water and it will turn blue, now add this to the sushi rice and mix it well.”
This trend became so popular that people started naming their new rainbow sushi rolls with appropriate names like: Mermaid sushi or Rainbow Unicorn sushi – what ever works for you man, these just look tasty
