So I will eat it in a box.
And I will eat it with a fox.
And I will eat it in a house.
And I will eat it with a mouse.
And I will eat it here and there.
Say! I will eat it ANYWHERE!
For some reason I’m craving the taste of nori a lot, but I can’t say it’s a bad thing. Nori offers a whole host of vitamins & minerals, including protein; vitamins A, B, and C; calcium; iron; magnesium; and more! What’s not to crave?
While not exactly innovative, this is a simple recipe for sushi making newbies, or for those who want to just have it made easy. For video instruction on making inside out rolls, click here to check out my video.
And now for that cake! I found this recipe on Vegan Feast Kitchen and had to make it! It was super easy to mix together, put into the slow cooker, and then head to bed. Dallas and I woke up to warm Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding Cake in the morning. With a crispy top, gooey inside, & just a touch of sweetness, this cake was exactly what I hoped it would be. Pretty awesome breakfast, we both agreed ;)
Now back to that sushi! Enjoy, foodies. From my kitchen to yours <3
|Creamy Avocado Sushi Rolls|
- 1/2 cup sushi rice
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 tbsp white sugar
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 2 tbsp unseasoned rice vinegar
- 2 sheets nori
- 2 tbsp vegan mayo
- 1 small ripe avocado, pitted, peeled, sliced
- In a small pot over high heat, bring sushi rice & water to a boil. Stir, reduce heat to low, & cover until water is absorbed, about 20 mins.
- When rice is cooked, use a rubber spatula to stir in sugar, sea salt, & rice vinegar. Stir well. Transfer rice to a bowl and allow to rest until cool enough to handle. I usually leave mine for 20 mins.
- Lay down a sushi mat on a counter or cutting board. Take one sheet of nori and lay it shiny side down on the sushi mat.
- Spread half of the rice evenly onto the nori sheet, leaving about one inch of space on each end.
- On the side closest to you, spread 1 tbsp of the vegan mayo width-wise onto the rice. Top with 1/2 of the sliced avocado, arranging neatly.
- Holding the end of the nori sheet closest to you with the end of the sushi mat, carefully roll up your sushi, making sure to pack a tight roll. Give it a little squeeze at the end.
- Slice roll into 6-8 bite size pieces and arrange on plate.
- Repeat steps 3 to 7 for other roll.
- Serve as desired, with soy sauce, ginger, wasabi, etc.
peace, love, food <3
