This recipe comes together very fast especially if you use ready-made cauliflower rice. However it only takes a couple of minutes to prepare from fresh cauliflower with a food processor. We love the small multifunction stick mixers as they are cheap and take up less room than proper food processors.

The cream cheese is the glue that holds the cauliflower rice together. The smoother and finer the cauliflower is blended the easier it will be to spread and it will hold together better.

You can experiment and add different fish, raw peppers, carrots and other veg into the sushi rolls.
