Cucumber Sushi

Learning how to make sushi rolls and loving it!

Rolling with it!

We are big fans of vegetable sushi and eat it often.  In fact, I would say it’s one of my go to meals when we are out and about.  However, until recently, I have never made it myself.  I was always intimidated.  For the holidays, I received a sushi mat and rolling kit so I decided it was time to finally give it a try.

I followed the basic recipe from Minimalist Baker and couldn’t have been happier!  The first roll I made came out so good I thought, “wow this is easy!”.  I have since realized that I need a bit of practice to learn the correct amount of rice to filling ratio and how to roll tightly.  But I am happy to practice because it tastes amazing and fresh no matter what it looks like!  And I love that I can play with the fillings and add whatever I have in the house or am craving.  Or as in this case, make my son a simple cucumber roll.

So if you’ve never made your own sushi either, definitely give it a try!

Sushi recipe based on Minimalist Baker sushi recipe.  I used sushi rice instead of short grain brown rice and different fillings but I found her sushi rice recipe easy and tasty and she had many good tips on rolling sushi for first timers like me!
