Vegan Sushi

What you need:

Soft Cream Cheese
Fresh fruits and vegetables

Wash your cucumber then cut it in half. Scoop out or cut out the seeds leaving a hollow cucumber. Slice the hollow cucumber, leaving the slices sushi thick about 1 or 2 inches. Now slice your fruit and vegetables in to thin sticks.
Add a little cream cheese to each cucumber slice on the inside to help hold the first veggie stick to the side. Then add your vegetable and fruit sticks inside the hollow of the cucumber.

For these Vegan Sushi I used apple slices, peppers and mushrooms.
