Sushi is so yummy. It is one of my favorite foods. It is also really fun to make. When people think of sushi, they normally think of raw fish. Sushi doesn’t always have to be made with raw fish. You can put almost anything into a sushi roll. When I make sushi, I love to make veggie rolls with cucumber, carrots, avocados, and sometimes bell peppers. A little wasabi paste adds an awesome kick too.
How to make my favorite veggie sushi roll:
1/2 cup rice vinegar, 3 tablespoons sugar, a pinch of salt, 2 cups calrose rice, a variety of thinly sliced vegetables (cucumbers, carrots, avocados, bell peppers, etc.), sheets of nori, wasabi paste (optional)
While you are making the rice, heat up the rice vinegar, sugar, and salt on the stove until simmering. When the rice is cooled, add 2 tablespoons of vinegar mixture at a time and stir until sticky. You won’t use all of the vinegar mixture. Organize your sushi rolling station with a bowl of water, whatever you are using to roll the sushi, sushi fillings, nori, and the bowl of prepared rice. Wet a nori sheet slightly on both sides and lay it on your roller. Using wet hands, cover with sushi rice, until only a frame of nori remains. Line your fillings on the bottom of the rice. Wet the bottom and the top edge of the nori and tightly roll. Slice roll with a very sharp, wetted knife into pieces about 1/2 inch thick.
I hope that it tastes great and that you had fun making it!
