Event Description

Serves 1-2
Sushi rice
Nori (seaweed)
Sesame seeds
Green onions, cucumber, avocado (optional)
Ground red pepper
Rice vinegar
Honey (or sweetener of choice)
Wasabi paste
Soy sauce

Boil 1 cup sushi rice. While the rice is boiling, shred 1-2 carrots and chop up a handful of sprouts (you can use any veggies you want, but these were the ones I used). Mix the chopped vegetables with enough mayo to coat and add ground red pepper to taste. Set this mixture aside. Slice green onions, cucumber, and avocado into long thin slices.Also mix 1 tablespoon of honey into 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar. Microwave the vinegar mixture to make sure that the honey dissolves fully.

When the rice has finished cooking, spread the cooked rice onto a flat tray and sprinkle the vinegar mixture onto the rice. Cut the nori lengthwise intotwo pieces and spoon the rice along one of the long edges. Use a spatula or wet fingers to smooth the rice onto the whole piece of nori until you have a flat even layer. Sprinkle a generous helping of sesame seeds onto your rice-covered nori and then flip it over. on the other side, spread your carrot and sprout mixture and place your other veggies in a line along the nori. Then roll the sushi up. This last part is easier said than done, but it just takes a little practice. When you cut the sushi, have the seam sidedown rather than up. This keeps it from falling apart.

Serve with wasabi and soy sauce.
