Sushi does not have to include fish. There is a big wave of Japanese food trends in Australia going for vegetarian and vegan options.

For vegetarians and vegans, there is vegetarian/vegan sushi available that contain ingredients like avocado, cucumber, carrots, mushroom, asparagus, tofu etc.

Other than sushi, popular vegetarian Japanese food dishes are Agedashi Tofu, Goma-ae (spinach salad), Nasu Dengaku (miso eggplant).
