I love sushi, and so do my husband and kids, so we make it quite often at home. It’s a great meal but it also makes a good snack, since it’s bite sized and you can have it ready in the fridge for your savory cravings!

You can use many ingredients, but here we will make an easier vegan version only with veggies. It’s also great combined with shrimp or other sea food, like tuna or salmon. Try this simple version to begin with and once you master it, use more of your favorite ingredients.

It looks hard, but is actually not. You just need to practice rolling a little. I must confess I did not make it the first time, but when I tried it again it turned out great. Now, even my kids can roll their own sushi rolls!!!

Ingredients

500gr sushi rice
150gr rice vinegar
3 tsp sea salt
7-8 nori sheets
½ avocado
1 carrot
½ cucumber
1 medium zucchini
10 pickles
FOR SERVING
soy sauce without sugar
pickled ginger
wasabi

Steps

1
Done

Boil the rice according to the box instructions. Let it sit for about 10 mins, placing a clean towel under the lid to absorb the excess liquids. Let it cool completely.

2
Done

Add the rice vinegar to the rice and mix well.

3
Done

Cut your veggies julienne style (in stripes).

4
Done

Take a bamboo mat and cover it in plastic wrap.

5
Done

Place one nori sheet on the mat.

6
Done

Put some rice on your nori sheet and spread it evenly. Use your wet hands to do it, because the rice is too sticky. Your rice layer should be about 2-3 millimeters high so you can also add the veggies and roll it with ease. Leave the nori edge free so it can stick easier when you are done rolling it.

7
Done

Make your own combinations of veggies and start rolling the sheet. Use the mat to help you roll it easier and tighter. All you need to do is practice a little, so don't get discouraged if it does not work out the first time you try it.

8
Done

Once you are done rolling transfer your roll on a cutting board, cut it in half first and then cut the halves in half again, and again! You will come up with 8 perfect sushi rolls!!!

9
Done

Place them on a platter and voila!



Extra Tips

  • You can use your favorite vegetables like peppers, beets or anything you like and find fresh!
  • If you are not vegan, you can combine tuna and smoked salmon with the avocado and the pickles, adding more protein to your dish.
