Instead of Sushi Burgers, Make Sushi Sliders!

April 29, 2016 | By | Comments (4)

We did it. We fully admit it. We went there: the Sushi Burger. In this case, we’ve got Sushi Sliders. Brown rice “buns,” marinated tofu, and gochujang mayo make these little sushi sliders the cutest thing brown rice has ever made. Try your favorite marinade on the tofu, or opt for simple soy sauce!


Brown Rice Sushi Slider with Teriyaki Tofu

4 ounces extra-firm tofu, with water pressed out
1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon teriyaki marinade
1/4 cup matchstick carrots
1/4 cup peeled, diced cucumber
2 teaspoons unseasoned rice vinegar, divided
1/2 teaspoon furikake (Japanese rice seasoning blend)
1/2 cup brown sushi rice
1 teaspoon canola mayo
1 teaspoon gochujang, or other preferred Asian hot sauce

1. Cut tofu into 8 (eight) 1/2-inch slices. Heat sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat and sear tofu, brushing with teriyaki while cooking. Cook sushi rice to package directions.

2. While the tofu cooks: In a small bowl, marinate carrots and cucumber in rice vinegar and furikake. Let sit for 10 minutes and reserve 1 teaspoon rice vinegar mixture, discarding remaining.

3. Toss sushi rice with 1 teaspoon rice vinegar mixture. Form sushi rice into 8 flattened circles. 

4. Mix together mayo and gochujang. Spread one side of rice “bun” with 1/2 teaspoon mayo mixture, 2 tofu slices, and marinated vegetables. Top with remaining bun half. Repeat with remaining ingredients to create 4 sliders.
