Vegan Sushi Cones (Temaki)

Vegan Party Popper Emoji Sushi

♫ Listening to: Everybody Wants to Love You by Japanese Breakfast ♫

These vegan sushi cones (aka temaki) are decorated to look like the party popper emoji for any celebratory occasion.

I made these temaki sushi cones once for a potluck hosted by the amazing Rosie after procuring some Soy Wrappers from Vegan Republic (our local vegan store). They were a huge hit at the potluck. While I was brainstorming what to add to my New Year’s Eve menu this year, I immediately thought of the party popper emoji that I use so often that it’s in my favorite emojis menu (along with the sparkly heart and unicorn emojis, of course). If I were to recreate the party popper emoji with food, these temaki sushi cones seemed like the closest thing I could think of (although I also considered a cone-shaped cannoli with rainbow sprinkles and dried fruit pieces). If you like making food to celebrate things, you might like these party popper emoji sushi cones.

This recipe makes 10 party popper emoji sushi cones.
