This is the part where I would usually give you the okay to "indulge", but I can't with this recipe! Other than the sodium content that comes with soy sauce... this recipe is super healthy and high in protein! So please, simply enjoy (and watch your sodium intake).

Black + Soybean and Veggie Sushi
Bean Spread (You will have about 25% leftover, so you may choose to halve the recipe)
1 15oz can black beans + 1 15oz can of soy beans, drained and rinsed
2 15oz cans black soybeans, drained and rinsed (which I cannot find anywhere)
2 tbs toasted sesame oil
2 tbs shoyu or tamari soy sauce
4 tbs crushed ginger
4 sheets of sushi nori (comes in larger sheets than regular nori)
4 tortillas, 8-9in in diameter (I used 10in rye tortillas)
1 cup finely shredded red cabbage
8 1/4in-wide strips of red bell pepper
2 carrots, cut into 16 5in by 1/8in strips
1 pickling (Kirby) cucumber, seeded and cut into 8 equal strips
1. Combine all Bean Spread ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Add a little bit water if necessary to make it spreadable. The mixture should remain thick. Add more ginger and/or soy sauce if desired.
Makes 32 pieces of sushi for 4-6 servings.
