This is a simple way to make sushi at home! Serve it a la carte which makes it easier and a fun event for a party or for a family dinner where people can assemble their wraps themselves. There are endless possibilities once you have the basics of the sushi rice, nori, ginger and wasabi. We offer a few options here to get you started but use your heart and get creative.
2 cups short grain brown rice
4 ½ cups water
6 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
3 tablespoons coconut sugar or sweetener of choice
1 teaspoon sea salt
Filling, as seen in photo:
4 carrots, shredded
1 English cucumber, peeled and cut in 3 “ strips
½ bunch green onions, cut in 3 inch pieces
2 avocadoes, cut in slices
2 per person Nori sheets cut in half
Alternative wrap ideas:
- In small saucepan combine water and rice, cover and bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook until all water is gone and rice is tender about 45 minutes. Mix with vinegar mixture and allow to cool to room temperature.
- Prepare your vegetables and condiments. If you’re using powdered wasabi, mix it with enough water to make it into a thick paste.
- Serve all ingredients separately.
To assemble: Take one sheet of nori, lay vertically and spread about 3 to 4 Tablespoons of rice mixture in the middle of nori. Place other ingredients on top of the rice, adding wasabi, ginger and tamari to taste and roll closed. Enjoy!
