Sushi- veggie style!

I love sushi! It is super yum and tastes so different to everything else I eat. What I don't love is how expensive it is and how much packaging it comes in. So now whenever I get a sushi craving I make my own! It's not that hard at all!

2 cups sushi rice
1/3 cup rice vinegar
4 sheets of nori
2 eggs
1tsp sugar
1 carrot
2 spring onions
1/4 cucumber
soy sauce for dipping

1) First things first, cook the rice! Put 2 mugs of sushi rice in a pan and cover with 2.75 mugs of water. Allow the rice to soak for 30 mins then simmer for 25 mins (or until the rice is cooked and the water is absorbed). Don't let the rice burn! Add 1/3 cup of rice vinegar and stir. Allow the rice to cool.

2) Prep your filling. I finely sliced 2 spring onions, a carrot and some cucumber. I also cooked some tamago (sweet egg). Beat 2 eggs with a teaspoon of sugar. Pour a thin layer into a hot frying pan. When its mostly cooked, roll it up, squishing it down as you go! Move this roll back to the edge of the pan and pour another thin layer of egg in so that it joins up. Roll again and make sure the egg is cooked but not too brown. Remove from pan and allow to cool.

3) Lay a sheet of nori shiny side down on a sushi mat. Run your hands under cold water and grab a big old handful of rice and squish it on. The thickness of this layer will determine the size of your sushi roll! Leave a big gap at the top of the sheet.

4) Lay your filling of choice in the middle of the rice

5) Roll and slice. Easy but a little time consuming! Serve with a pot of soy sauce for dipping. Yum!
