Are you seeking a vegetarian alternative to sushi? If so, your prayers have been answered by Beyond Sushi, an innovative 100% vegetarian sushi restaurant.

What makes Beyond Sushi different than any other restaurant, aside from its focus on vegetarian ingredients, is the creativity behind their sushi rolls. The New York eatery traded traditional white sticky rice for black forbidden rice and a 6 grain 'rice' made of rye berries, two types of barley, red, brown and black rice. Each colorful roll is topped with customized sauces like jalapeño-wasabi, mango-chili, carrot-ginger and shiitake-teriyaki.

Beyond Sushi is the creation of chef Guy Vaknin, a finalist in Hell's Kitchen season 10. If you love sushi and can't make it to New York to try Guy's creation, you can try your hand at making your own Thai vegan sushi or Moroccan style sushi rolls.
