Short description: Cauliflower rice rolls filled with carrot, cauliflower leaf, pickled beetroot, cucumber and spinach.
Eight sushi-style rolls filled with locally sourced fresh produce, packaged in an eco-friendly biodegradable sushi tray. The ideal lunch or snack for a health conscious and time stricken office worker. The filling includes carrot, pickled beetroot, cucumber, spinach and garlic-roasted cauliflower leaves. These are then packed with cauliflower rice, as an alternative to carbohydrates, and then wrapped up in seaweed. The whole cauliflower is used in this product which minimises food waste in the supply chain.The vegetables used are specifically selected for their seasonality, harvest location and ability to grow in varying weather conditions. These factors contribute to reducing food miles, providing a sustainable lunchtime item. It is low calorie, low fat and high in vitamin C, which offers a guilt-free healthy option to workers, commuters and tudents. Yasai cauliflower rice sushi comes accompanied by wasabi, pickled ginger and a bottle of glutenfree soy sauce. This makes it suitable for vegans and consumers who follow a gluten- free diet. Of course, it can still be enjoyed by carnivores! The sushi is packaged in a biodegradable sushi tray. The eco-friendly material means that the tray can be composted and it is also microwavable if the consumer should wish to reuse it. The plastic lid can be recycled too, reducing the products overall environmental impact.
