I Made Sushi

I made sushi!  It was delicious, affordable and it was also quite easy to prepare.  To make sushi you will definitely need sushi rice, rice vinegar, seaweed and a bamboo roller.  The options for what you put in your sushi rolls is limitless.  We had avocado, cucumber, imitation crab, ginger, sweet mayo, wasabi and fresh salmon.

The trick in making sushi is to prepare the rice just right.  After 1.5 cups of rice has been cooked heat 1/2 cup of rice vinegar, 1 tablespoon sugar and a 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a saucepan.  Once the ingredients are dissolved remove from heat.  Now move the rice in a wide bowl, toss it, spread it, fan it, do whatever you need to to cool it down.  Once the rice is no longer steaming slowly add in and mix 3 tablespoons of the rice vinegar.  Taste the rice and you can gradually add up to 3 more tablespoons if you like.

Just don’t ask me how to roll the sushi, I was terrible at that part!

    Boiled sweet potato is the best! Especially if you can serve it when the sweet potato is still warm. Also, you forgot the carrots!
