Sushi is the most recent food to get the rainbow treatment and it looks delicious


Not everything looks better in rainbow colours (we still break out in a cold sweat in the middle of the night just thinking about those horrible rainbow grilled cheese sandwiches going around Instagram), but there are many things that look immeasurably better when they're rainbow coloured.

As it turns out, sushi is one such thing.

Yes, sushi has been around for hundreds of years but there's no harm in giving it a little 2016 update. Perhaps its recent rainbow-themed surge in popularity can be explained by the fact that it's so. Damn. Instagrammable.

If you fancy having a go at making rainbow sushi at home, don't worry if you haven't got a baking cupboard stocked with a plethora of colours. You can easily add colour to rice with a little purple cabbage, tumeric or beetroot.

Alternatively, sushi-savvy cooks with a well-stocked cupboard can experiment by adding a few drops of food colouring to separate portions of rice.

Who knew pastel food could look so appealing?

And there you have it, rainbow sushi is now *a thing*.
