Meatless Monday: PB&J Sushi

On my Pinterest I have a board that is called "need to try". That is where I found today's Meatless Monday recipe. It's super easy and super cute. Mine may not have come out as cute as they did in the original picture I saw that caught my eye, but they were fun to make and tasty! Your kids will love these...

PB&J Sushi

You will need:

Peanut butter
Jelly flavor of your choice
1-2 slices of bread
Rolling pin

Carefully slice crusts off bread. Flatten bread with a rolling pin. Cut the flattened slice down the middle so it's in 2 halves. Spread peanut butter and jelly onto slice(s) of bread. Gently roll up pb&j bread strips into a tight roll so that it resembles a sushi bite. Serve with chopsticks!

Flattened bread, before being cut into halves
Super easy, right? And totally cute and fun. Older kids can even help make this. This is one way that they will not turn down sushi!

I used Sabra Roasted Red Pepper hummus

I also made some with hummus and romaine. Follow the same steps, only spread hummus onto the bread, then lay a strip on lettuce leaf of top of that, followed by a little more hummus to keep it altogether. Stick a strip of romaine lettuce into top for a little flair.

Lily wasn't sure what to make of these little nibbles when she first set eyes on them, but she managed to gobble them up anyway. When she's older she'll appreciate my efforts at being creative, I'm sure...

You can probably come up with some different "sushi"-fillings for this recipe. What do you think would work well?

Now it's your turn to share your Meatless Monday dish below! No rules, other than please only link-up meat-free recipes. No other un-related links or I will remove them. Sorry to sound so harsh, but let's keep it true to what it is, ok? Link up as much as you want, and feel free to spread the word with the button below. Thanks, and have a great week and a happy Labor Day holiday!



  1. What fun sushi! Hope you and your family are having a great long weekend! Thanks for hosting!

  2. Thank you for hosting. My boys would love that kind of sushi :)

  3. The sushi is so cute! I make them pbj roll-ups with tortillas instead of rolling bread, then slice like sushi. I also sprinkle hemp seeds or chia seeds in there too for extra essential fatty acids, and a bit of crunch! Thanks for hosting another Meatless Mondays. I am sharing my Spinach, Rice and Cashew salad; great for appetizer or main dish.

    1. I love the idea of using hemp or chia seeds! I will do that next time I make these since I have those in my pantry too. That's funny- while I was rolling the bread flat, I was thinking, "I could've just used a tortilla for this!" lol. Thanks so much for linking up :)

  4. Great idea! Loving all of the meatless recipes! Thanks so much.
