Lots of people think that sushi is all about fish. I wonder sometimes if those people have ever actually been to a sushi restaurant: there’s all kinds of rolls and lots of them are meat-free.

But sushi is really fun to make, too! And thanks again to the magic shape-shifting powers of zucchini, you can make your own tasty yummy sushi rolls with all the stuff you love and none of it that you don’t.

There’s something special about cabbage. It’s just so much better than it seems like it should be. The deep purplish hue of red cabbage makes it great not only for adding a bit of color to your dishes, it also helps you get a well-rounded assortment of nutrients. And they’re just so cute!
No dish better showcases this lovely vegetable than coleslaw, and this Moroccan Mint Red Cabbage Slaw is the envy of all others.

There’s a lot of goodness your body needs, and not much of anything it doesn’t!
The dressing is particularly nice. Cinnamon is an eccentric spice, and pairing it with maple syrup really accentuates the ambiguous character of this somehow sweet and savory bark.
