Vegan Sushi

I am in love with vegan sushi. I’ll go to Wegmans multiple times a week and drop about $6 each time on a lovely avocado roll. It really hurts the small budget I have for food made outside of the home. Ultimately, to keep up with my healthy sushi habit, we decided to make our own to save money and to play around with the ingredients. We chose to incorporate avocado, mushrooms, cucumber, and carrot. In the end, we made 11 rolls. For the ingredients that we used, we spent $6.50 for 11 rolls. It is simply baffling to be able to make more than 10 times the sushi for the same price as one Wegmans roll.
