Rainbow Sushi Is Here and It's Magical AF

Taste the rainbow. Literally.

Rainbow food is all the rage lately—and if you've ever seen a rainbow bagel or the magic of a rainbow grilled cheese being pulled apart in slow motion, it's easy to understand why. Adding some extra color to your food is a surefire way to bring a little more magic to your everyday; and now, people are starting to do it with their sushi.

Also known as "mermaid sushi," rainbow sushi is about to be the latest food fad flooding your Instagram feed. It's as beautiful as it is delicious, and while recipes vary on how to achieve the gorgeous array of colors for the sushi's rice, most include healthy, natural options to help you avoid food coloring. As a bonus, quite a few of them are vegetarian or vegan, as well!

Check out just a few of Instagram's most amazing rainbow sushi creations below.
