This Gal Just took Sushi to a Whole New Level with Dragon Fruit! (Vegan Recipe)

Dragon Fruit Sushi by Navitas Naturals  With their dramatic presentation, these sweet and savory sushi rolls showcase well-balanced flavor in an exotic form.

Place the dragonfruit slices in a bowl, and cover with water. Let soak for 10 minutes. Drain the water and set the dragonfruit aside.

Rinse the rice. In a small saucepan, combine the rice with 1½ cups, cover, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to a low, and cook for 25-30 minutes or until water is absorbed and rice is tender. Remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes, then mix in the coconut sugar and vinegar. Refrigerate until rice cool enough to handle.

Use the nori sheets to roll ingredients into cut sushi rolls, using pieces of avocado and dragonfruit as the filling (dragonfruit may be cut in half if desired).
