Not only is Veggie Sushi a delicious side dish, but it’s also a great way to add some variety to your picnic!
For the rice: – 9.80 oz (1 ½ cup) sushi rice – 14 fl oz (1 ¾ cups) Water – 3 tbsp rice vinegar – 1 tbsp sugar – 1 tbsp salt For the sushi: – 2 cucumbers – 2 carrots – Scallions – 1 avocado – Soy sauce (for serving)
Make the rice: In a pot over medium heat add water and the rice. Cover and cook until the water has absorbed. In a small saucepan add the rice vinegar, salt and the sugar, stir a cook until the salt and sugar has dissolved. Add it to the previously cooked rice and stir.
Wash the cucumber and cut it into thin stripes. Clean the carrot and cut it into short stripes. Peel the avocado and cut it into thin slices. Cut the scallions as well.
Now it’s time to assemble the sushi. Take a small amount of the rice and shape it with your hands as a small cube. Don’t worry if it is not perfect since it is going to be wrapped in the cucumber.
Place a few slices of the carrot, scallions and avocado and wrap it in the cucumber. Make sure it is tight enough so the filling from the inside doesn’t fall off. To make it easier you can roll the sushi on your chopping board.
Veggie Sushi is a delicious picnic side dish that is perfect for vegetarians, vegans, or anyone wanting a tasty alternative to regular sushi.
