Rainbow unicorn sushi 🌈🍙❤️ by @theindigokitchen Ingredients: 2 cups uncooked sushi rice 1/4 cup rice vinegar 2 tbsp vegan sugar 1 avocado Bell pepper 1 Cucumber 1 sweet potato 1/4 piece purple cabbage 1/2 tsp baking soda Turmeric Beet powder Spirulina 1 tsp gochujang 5 sheets nori Colouring the rice Cook the sushi rice and place it in a bowl to cool and add the rice vinegar and sugar to your own taste. Mix it in using a wooden spoon (this will help prevent the rice to break) To make each colour you take a shallow bowl and put about half a cup of rice and mix in the food colouring. *keep in mind that you just want to colour the rice so don't add to much of each food colouring so you don't alter the taste to much. For red use a bit of beet powder For orange use a mixture of turmeric and beet powder or a small amount of gochujang (for this batch I used gochujang) For yellow add a little bit of turmeric For green use a little bit of spirulina and a pinch of turmeric For blue and purple 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. Assembling the sushi Chop your sweet potato in stripes and roast these in a preheated oven on 450 Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes. Now chop the remaining ingredients into strips. Now get a bamboo roller and cover it with some plastic wrap to keep it clean. Add a sheet of nori and place strips of rice until you've got all the colours and top this with the filling. Now roll the suhsi and wet the end with a bit of water to make it sticky and place it on a platter or chopping board. Once you've rolled all your rolls, wet a sharp knife and slice your rolls to reveal a beautiful rainbow sushi! Enjoy! #letscookvegan

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

  

I’ve seen lots of rainbow food on the Internet, but I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve seen a rainbow grilled cheese sandwich! A great attempt but I like to see more colors in my rainbows. Looks like they have a pinky-red, blue, green, and maybe some yellow.

Rainbow Steam Cake

This rainbow cake uses a different technique than most rainbow cakes. Instead of baking all the layers separately, then stacking them at the end, you bake a layer, pour the next layer on top, bake both of those, etc, all the way to the top layer. The “steam” in the name comes from a pan of water you sit on the bottom rack of the oven to keep the cake moist.

Kawaii Monster Cafe

Sharla in Japan went to visit the Kawaii Monster cafe in Harajuku. The colors are amazing! I think my favorite food item is the “colorful poison” parfait which Sharla said was a bit much for 5 people! And the bouncy ball sink in the bathroom looks so cool! I hope when I make it to Japan the cafe is still there!

Rainbow Bagels

These rainbow bagels are beautiful! Scott Rosillo, the “world’s premier bagel artist,” makes them at The Bagel Store in Brooklyn. Some of them have a funfetti-style cream cheese filling too! The best part is they’re available to be shipped nationwide (without the cream cheese), but they’re so popular that there’s currently a wait! They’re egg and dairy free.

$3.95 at The Bagel Store
