Prep Time: 30 mins

Cook Time: 30 mins

Serving: 4


For the Vegan Spam

  • 1 extra firm tofu (pressed)

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (or oyster sauce)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder

  • 2 tablespoons agave syrup

For the Sushi Rice

  • 2 cups white sushi rice

  • 2 cups filtered water

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 2 sheets of nori


  • Start by pressing your tofu using TOFUDEE Tofu Press for 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Once pressed, slice the tofu into equal slices.

  • Cut each tofu slice into a coffin shape (use a coffin cookie cutter if available).

  • Lay each tofu into the pan while preparing the marinade sauce.

  • Make a marinade by combining soy sauce, garlic powder, and agave syrup.

  • Pour the marinade sauce into the coffin-shaped tofu. Add olive oil on top.

  • Bake the tofu in the oven for 20 minutes.

  • Let it cool while preparing the sushi rice

  • Mix cooked rice with rice vinegar, sea salt, and sugar. If it’s too thick to stir, add a little more rice vinegar. You want to end up with a pourable consistency.

  • Grab a tenth of the rice with wet hands and roll it into an oval shape.

  • Cut the nori sheets into at least 10 strips.

  • Set one seaweed strip on a flat surface.

  • Stack a coffin spam tofu onto the nori strip and top with your rice oval.

  • Wrap the seaweed strip all the way around and dip your finger in some water to help seal the nori together at the ends.

Serve and enjoy! 😋😉
