SINCE SUSHI, by its very name, is all about the rice, that's the bulk of this recipe. Once you have "sushi rice" ready, you can make many varieties, though we'll focus on nori rolls, the most well-known format in this country.   Optimally you should use Japanese rice, found at specialty stores, but short-grain rice works, too. Avoid long-grain varieties; they aren't sticky enough. Here's a basic, but versatile, recipe. The vinegar mixture can be adjusted to taste.   VEGAN SUSHI   3 cups rice 6 cups water 1/4 cup rice vinegar 1/4 cup sugar 1 teaspoon salt Several sheets of nori (seaweed paper)

HERE are some well-loved sources for fish-free sushi, the "Top Five," though there are many places around town. Vegans and vegetarians should confirm the absence of fish-based "dashi" broth.   Fat Salmon (719 Walnut St., 215-928-8881, fatsalmonsushi.com ). Despite the name, this is one of the vegan-friendlier sushi places around, with three signature "veggie" rolls — the "Old School," the "Tofuholic" and "Lipstick Trace.

JULY IS A big month for U.S. rowing at the top level: Over in Camden on the Cooper River, the 2012 USRowing Club National Championships began Wednesday and continue through this weekend. Shortly thereafter, the USRowing Senior National team heads to London for the Olympics. Other than Philly's longstanding love of rowing culture, what does all this have to with "V for Veg"? Well, it happens that the Olympic rowers will officially be powered by a vegan snack product, The Perfect Snaque, which you can also check out at the Camden event.

"I THINK IT'S awesome how Philly's become such a vegan-friendly place," said Kate Jacoby, likely one of the two people in town most responsible for that happening. With her husband, Rich Landau, Jacoby was co-owner of Horizons, a trailblazing vegan restaurant at 7th and Kater streets that closed a year ago this weekend. From its origins in 1994 as a natural-foods juice stand in Willow Grove, Horizons evolved over the years and in 2006 moved into Philadelphia, forever altering the local conversation about vegan dining.

YOU KNOW veganism has arrived when even newspaper comic-strip characters are taking the plunge. Last week in the Philly-set "Jump Start," Sunny, the precocious family daughter, proclaimed her intent to veganize, citing her aunt Charlene as already vegan. But it's also no surprise that both characters are female: To many people, vegan equals "girly," a notion borne out by a recent marketing study that found both men and women often ascribe manliness to meat and daintiness to tofu.

HOW'RE THOSE New Year's resolutions going? Back in January, I challenged myself, and you, to double our fruit and vegetable intake by the end of 2012. And as of this month, I pretty much already have. OK, partly that's because my total for fresh fruit has historically been pitiful. But I also had a powerful ally that gave me confidence: a Vitamix high-speed blender. In just a few months, I've had so many fruit and vegetable smoothies that I've already passed my 2011 total.

IS AMERICA ready for vegan fast food? Two joints that just opened — one in Center City, the other on the Main Line — indicate that at least Philly is. And how. HipCityVeg , off Rittenhouse Square (127 S. 18th St.), has been open for barely two weeks and already it's something of a phenomenon. This seems partly due to the attention to detail in its planning, and partly that people just really, really like the food. "We planned for a gradual increase [in customers]," owner Nicole Marquis told me. That part of the plan was thrown out the window on the first day when HipCity wound up mobbed with curious customers and ran out of food.
