Sushi

Sushi is a favourite with my boys. Every time we head to the shops the boys are pleading for "Susi!" It is very hard to find sushi made with healthful ingredients, so at home we make our own brown rice sushi. It is ultra easy and anyone can do it with the right utensils. So get out your nori sheets and sushi mat and start rolling!

Makes 20 approx.

Ingredients

1 packet of Nori Sheets
2 1/2 cups of Brown rice, uncooked
300g block of firm Tofu, sliced in long 1/2cm rectangles
Lettuce
Avocado, sliced in lengths
Cucumber, sliced in lengths thinly
Carrot, julienned

Step 1: Cook the brown rice in double amount the water. Bring to the boil and lower to a simmer and let cook for 45 mins. Add a tsp of Celtic salt and 1 tsp of Tamari to the rice mixture. Let the rice cool down before using on the nori sheets.

Step 2: Fry the Tofu strips in a little smear of olive oil and tamari until browned on both sides. I use my sandwich press for this, or you can use a fry pan (non-stick is preferable).

Step 3: Have all the vegetables cut up and ready to use.

Step 4: Place a nori sheet on your sushi mat. Moisten your hands with water before handling the rice. Press the brown rice onto the nori sheet making it a little less then a centimetre in thickness. Leave about an inch free from brown rice at the further end.


Step 5: Place all your ingredients in a long row. Tofu first, lettuce, avocado, carrot and cucumber.


Step 6: When you are ready to roll, quickly turn in the first end of the sushi mat around the vegetables and press firmly. Lift up the sushi mat a little and continue to roll the sushi until almost at the end. Wet the end of the sushi with water and roll over the edge  to stick. This is quite complicated to explain so if you can search 'sushi making' in youtube you should be right.

Cut the Sushi Roll in half and enjoy!
