Maki Rolls

Maki-Rolls Super easy if you have the ingredients on hand. Watch YouTube videos before if you want a better visual.

1 1/2 cups sushi rice
1 1/2 cups water
1/3 cup rice vinegar
3 Tbls. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2″ x 2″ or more fresh ginger, grated
1/2 cup dried wasabi peas, crushed in blender (optional)

Nori Sheets and a Bamboo mat are also needed –

Veggies for rolls: steamed asparagus, carrots, cucumber and red pepper (thinly sliced)

Maki Rolls2 Make the rice in a rice cooker or saucepan. Let cool. In a glass bowl microwave the sugar and vinegar at 30 second intervals until sugar dissolves. (Or do that in a saucepan) Add salt and stir well. Stir this mixture into the rice along with the fresh ginger and wasabi if using. Lay out a sheet of seaweed (Nori) over a bamboo mat and gently spread cooled rice mixture on, leaving room at the bottom open. Lay veggies across near the top closest to you, roll slowly while pressing firmly. Seal end with water, slice and serve with tamari, sesame seeds and pickled ginger (optional).

This 3 minute video is good for getting the idea. It’s not hard I tell ya!
