Vegetarian Sushi

What you need:

What you do: 

1. Cook the rice according to package directions. Mix vinegar, vegan sugar and salt in separate bowl.
2. Mix vinegar mixture into the cooked rice.
3. Wrap the rice with the nori. Mix soy sauce and wasabi, and use as dipping sauce.
You can also wrap up vegetables with the rice. Avocado, cooked asparagus, cucumber, thin carrot slices, and ginger taste good with this. These ingredients can all be found at an Asian food store.

Me again - As for making sticky rice, you can add rice wine vinegar, sugar and salt - I don't bother with the latter two but adding vinegar, even a white balsamic, gives it stickiness.  Give it a go - sushi is sooooo good! K  :D

Elize - I guess you would press out the rice onto cling film, press sesame seeds on top of the rice, place another piece of cling film over that, turn over, take the cling film off the rice-only side, add your fillings and roll up remembering to take out the cling film as you roll - never tried it myself but have seen the girls on post punk kitchen on the net do sushi using cling film to put rice on the outside and inside of nori!  Hope this helps - K :)

some questions, does anyone have tips on how to make those sushi rolls with sesame seedson the outside instead of nori? (im not a huge fan of the nori texture). also, how do you get the rice to be so sticky like in the restaraunts? does this only work with "sushi rice", or with other rice? i even got a rice cooker a while ago, it cooks rice well, but it never gets quite sticky enough! any help? sushi is quite new to me.

i like to make my sushi with cucumber, avocado, green onions, and mango slivers.  the interplay that the mango (i use pineapple too sometimes) has with the veggies and the ginger soy sauce I  make  is amazing...

i made some sushi and yay! always a hit with the friends. i didn't add the sugar and used a couple tablespoons of soy sauce instead of the salt (mixed into rice with the vinegar). I made three different rolls with combos of the following: avocado, marinated tofu, carrot, baby bella mushrooms.

yum, can't wait to try this. I make sushi without the little bamboo mat; just pretend like your rolling a really big, um, cigarrette. ;)
Also, what I do with the rice, is after I add the vinegar & sugar, I stir the rice with one hand whilst simultaneously fanning it with a  fan (like the ones you see the Japanese ladies demurely hiding their faces with). A manila folder works nice as a fan. I know that sounds kinda wierd, but it works excellent and you don't have to wait to let it cool.

I usually make sushi with a mix of brown and basmati rice... it is a little different, but great taste! You just need to cook them separately, or use quick cook brown rice... I fill with Avocado, cucumber, beets, red bell pepper, lettuce, garlic, itty bit of chopped fresh chili, and I spread a little of ABC Spread (almond, brazil and cashew nuts made ito a spread) on the rice...a fav of my hubby...
