Many food recipe favorites are being revamped to incorporate more color into the dish, and this rainbow sushi meal incorporates natural dyes extracted from brightly colored foods to give the rice its technicolor appearance.

The rainbow sushi is made in a similar way to the authentic Japanese cuisine, except that the recipe incorporates adding edible dye to the white rice to give it a technicolor hue. The dye used is sourced from natural ingredients that give off a vibrant color payoff such as beets, spirulina and saffron.

While the unique aesthetic doesn't necessarily change the flavors of the sushi, it provides the dish with a new and appetizing appearance that makes the eating experience feel new and exciting.
