You will need:

For the pickled cucumbers:
  • 2 baby cucumbers, sliced lengthways
  • 50ml cider vinegar
  • 20g brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chilli flakes
  • Pinch of salt
For the rice:
  • ½ cup white sushi rice
  • ½ cup coconut yoghurt
  • Salt
  • 2 tablespoons kimchi
  • ½ avocado, sliced thinly
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 teaspoon toasted white sesame seeds


  • 1Slice up the cucumbers and place them in a bowl. Then place the rest of the pickling ingredients in a small pan, bring to a boil, and once the sugar has dissolved, pour the liquid over the sliced cucumbers. Let sit to cool and pickle!
  • 2Wash the rice until the water runs clear, then cook it (should use 1 cup of water) until the rice is soft and fluffy. Stir the coconut yoghurt through it while it's still warm.
  • 3Place the rice in a bowl and top with the pickled cucumbers, kimchi, sliced avocado, shaved carrot, and a sprinkle of toasted white sesame seeds.
