Enjoy vegan sushi at home with this easy, flavorful Sweet Potato Roll Sushi recipe! Crispy, baked sweet potato strips, avocado and sushi rice are wrapped up and served with sesame seeds and soy sauce for a unique, delicious vegetarian roll. Serve this for lunch, dinner or as an appetizer!


  • 1 medium sweet potato, cut into 2-ish inch strips
  • 2/3 cups of plant-based milk
  • 2 tablespoons of flaxseed meal
  • 1/3 cup of cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 avocado, cut into strips
  • 4 nori sheets
  • 2 cups of cooked sushi rice*
  • Sesame seeds and soy sauce for servings


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  2. In a shallow bowl, mix together the plant milk and flaxseed meal. Set aside for 5 minutes to thicken.
  3. In a separate shallow bowl, mix together the cornstarch, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt.
  4. Dip each sweet potato strip into the milk mixture and then lightly toss it in the cornstarch mixture. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat until all of the potato is on the baking sheet. 
  5. Spray the top of the sweet potato strips with cooking spray and bake for 10 minutes. Flip, spray again, and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  6. Assemble the sushi by spreading ½ cup of the cooked sushi rice on your nori sheet, leaving about half an inch clear at the top. Top with 4 strips of the sweet potato (or more depending on how thinly you sliced them) and some of the avocado. You want to divide the sweet potato and avocado evenly between 4 rolls so keep that in mind. Roll it up tightly, adding a little bit of water to the edge as needed to seal the nori.
  7. Slice and ENJOY with sesame seeds, soy sauce, and your other favorite sushi toppings!


*I love using THIS recipe for my sushi rice. It makes about twice as much as you need for this recipe, so you could cut it in half, but I always love having the leftover rice.
