Olives for Dinner — Shiitake Nigiri

Olives for Dinner was created by a lifelong vegan at heart, who took some time to figure out her calling. She created this blog in January of 2011, with an approach centered on "the strategic selection and application of spices, herbs, and oils with other complimentary [sic] textures and flavors." A few things to remember about her recipes are that most of them are not low-fat; she uses hot sauces liberally and frequently; she uses, creates, and loves mock meats and cheeses; and she believes that presentation is as important as taste. Here, rice and shiitake mushrooms are wrapped between a toasted nori strip and sprinkled with sesame seeds.
