VEGETABLE SUSHI

Time of preparation: 20-40 min

Difficulty: easy


Serves 3

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup rice

  • 1 tsp thyme

  • 2 tbs sesame seeds

  • 1 tsp vinegar (or lemon juice)

  • 1 carrot, 1 cucumber

  • 1/2 avocado

  • 1 cup baby spinach

  • 1/2 pepper

  • handful of sprouts

  • 1/2 cup cabbage

  • 50 g mushrooms

  • 4 tbs tamari

  • 4 nori seaweed sheets

  • wasabi


Cook the rice in salted water. When you take it off the heat, mix in the lemon juice (half lemon) or teaspoon of vinegar, and thyme.

While cooking the rice, cut the vegetables (use the ones you already have in the fridge) into long strips. This way it is easier to roll the sushi.

Place one nori sheet on a flat surface and spread a layer of rice across it. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Leave 1 cm on the top of the sheet empty to roll more easily. Place a layer of vegetable horizontally in the middle of the sheet, roll the bottom part of nori, sprinkle water on the empty top part and continue rolling until you get a tight log.

Let it rest. Meanwhile you can prepare a salad with lettuce and vegetable leftovers. Season to taste and serve.

Dip sushi into a mixture of tamari and wasabi.
