Clean Eating’s Veggie and Crab Sushi Cones (Could Be Meatless Monday)

There are many reasons why I’m lucky to have a husband like Nick. One of the qualities I love most about him is that he is willing to try just about anything I make. I love that he’s adventurous when it comes to food. Even if he doesn’t love something I make, he will still eat it and not complain (as long as he’s able to add hot sauce….). There is one thing, however, that he refuses to eat, and that’s sushi (well, he won’t eat salmon either).

Of course, that didn’t stop him from taking me to a sushi restaurant for our three year anniversary…..Veggie and Crab Sushi Cones 1And he also took me to Sushi for my 28th birthday…..Veggie and Crab Sushi Cones 2But when he walked in and saw me attempting to make sushi cones, all he could do was laugh, “Seriously, sushi?! Hahaha, you think I’m going to eat that??”.

No, I never thought he would eat it, which is why I chose to make the simple version of sushi, sushi cones. These babies were so easy, and delicious, I was actually glad I didn’t have to share. So in your face Nick!Veggie and Crab Sushi Cones 3 Crab and Vegetable Sushi Cones
