Rainbow colored rolls are the growing trend among sushi lovers on Instagram.
No, we’re not talking about the assorted rainbow roll that consists of a California roll topped with sashimi — we’re talking about a multi-color explosion on a sushi feast.
Tasting the rainbow is officially food art.
In the past, we have been introduced to rainbow bagels and grilled cheese sandwiches.
Rainbow sushi is a popular recipe among vegans and foodies who enjoy preparing their own foods
The recipes often involve all- natural coloring.
Instagram account Letscookvegan uses beet powder for red food coloring.
Beet powder and turmeric or a small amount of gochujang can be used for orange coloring.

A bit of spirulina and a pinch of turmeric for green coloring.
For blue and purple, Lets Cook Vegan says:
“boil 1/4 piece of chopped cabbage in about 3 cups of water for about 30 minutes or until you’re left with about 1 cup of water. Use this water to cook 1/2 cup of sushi rice and save about 3 tbsp of the purple water to make the blue food colouring. Now you’ve got your purple rice use some of the remaining white rice you made to make blue. Add about 1 tsp of baking soda to the purple water and it will turn blue, now add this to the sushi rice and mix it well.”
People have began giving their rainbow sushi rolls creative names like Mermaid Sushi and Rainbow Unicorn Sushi.
