Vegetarian Sushi Rolls
Serves: 14
For cooking rice
  • Sushi rice or sticky rice- 1 cup (add more for making more sushi)
  • Water- 1 cup
  • Vinegar- 1½ tbsp
  • Salt- little
For filling
  • Avocado, cut into thin stripes- 1
  • Cucumber, cut thin long stripes- ½ cucumber
  • Carrot, cut thin long stripes- ½ carrot
Other ingredients
  • Sushi mat or Bamboo mat or rolling mat
  • Roasted seaweed or Nori- 2 sheets or more
  • Sesame seeds, black or white to sprinkle over rice- 2 to 3 tbsp
  • Soy Sauce- for dipping sushi
  1. Cook the rice along with the water in a rice cooker.
  2. After the rice has cooked, add salt and vinegar to the rice and combine well, let cool down for sometime.
  3. Place the sushi mat or bamboo mat on a clean cutting board or on counter top.
  4. Layer it with a clean plastic cover or wrap.
  5. Place the seaweed on the plastic wrap.
  6. Evenly spread half of the rice over the seaweed. Wet your hands with water to prevent rice form sticking to your hands.
  7. Sprinkle sesame seeds over the rice.
  8. Gently turn the seaweed with the rice upside down so that the rice layer will become the bottom layer.
  9. On the middle of the seaweed, line the avocados and top it with carrots and cucumber.
  10. Gently, fold both ends of the seaweed over the filling.
  11. Starting from one end roll the sushi mat along with the plastic wrap tightly.
  12. When the sushi is completely rolled, tighten the sushi mat.
  13. Gently, unroll the mat and peel off the plastic wrap.
  14. You'll have a nice tight long sushi roll.
  15. Using a sharp knife cut the sushi into 6 or 7 pieces depending upon how thick you want. Wet the knife before cutting the sushi so that the rice and filling won't stick to the knife.
  16. Serve with soy sauce and pickled ginger.
  17. Dip the sushi in soy sauce and gracefully put it in your mouth and enjoy the delicacy.
  18. You could use any kinds of fillings you want mayonnaise, cream cheese, cooked shrimp, crab etc.
