Sushi Rolls

You can stuff these sushi rolls with anything you like.  The kids love mango rolls.  I prefer avocado rolls.  But you could stuff them with shredded carrots, cucumber, sweet potatoes, asparagus, red bell peppers, or any combination of veggies.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups sushi rice (or short-grained brown rice)
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon white sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 large firm-ripe avocados (or whatever filling you’re using)
  • 4 sheets nori
  • Tamari (gluten-free soy sauce)
  • Wasabi and/or pickled ginger (optional)


Instructions:

I’m just going to link to the site I used to make the rolls since the pictures are key here.  This site (and all similar sushi making sites) suggest you use a bamboo sushi mat, carefully rinse the rice multiple times before cooking, cautiously fold the vinegar mixture in with the rice in a certain way, let things set for minutes, etc.  But I’m going to admit it – I did none of that.  I don’t own a bamboo sushi mat, I only rinsed the rice once, I clumsily mixed the vinegar mixture in with the rice, and I didn’t let anything sit.  And yet…  they tasted amazing!  They weren’t pretty (I think it takes a few times to get the hang of rolling them, and it’s true a sushi mat might help), but the taste was still perfect.  So just go for it!
