Who loves sushi? I don’t know anyone who doesn’t, so I assume you do too. Guess what– you can make your own so easily! Just buy a bamboo sushi mat from the store or Amazon and you’ll be on your way.
Some of the other ingredients you might not have in your house are the seaweed sheets (Nori) and sushi (short grain) rice. I think you can get both at some regular grocery stores, but they are definitely at Asian food stores.
What should you put in your sushi? Whatever you want! I usually do cucumbers, carrots, and avocado. But for this recipe, I also added tofu for some extra protein and creaminess, and it worked just fine! Other ideas: asparagus, sweet potatoes, and pickled daikon are also good in there. Go nuts!
Once you’ve got your filling and rice prepped, all there is left to do is wrap them up. It gets easier as you go, so just practice practice practice. The tighter the better for the sushi staying together, once it’s cut into pieces.
Remember that water is your friend when it comes to the sticky rice– have a clean bowl on hand for spreading the rice with wet fingers and cutting the rolls with a wet knife. Makes things much easier. Bon appetite!
