Sushi Ninja!

Today, we were very hungry with Anne Elise. So hungry her stomache was growling at her! So, we made some sushi. It's just too easy to make. Seriously.  We had some prepared sushi rice from yeasterday( if you can't make it, you can buy it ready at any sushi bar, it costs next to nothing), sharpened a knife, killed an avocado and fished some crabfingers. Ah, we also killed in the process half of a cucumber. What we also found in the frigde was mayonaise and some grilled mushrooms. Guess what? 10 minutes and you have a delicious, healthy lunch! Wow! Here's how we made it (video later, when I master the terrible art of posting on Youtube)

Type of dish: lunch, dinner
Cost: cheap
Difficulty:  easy
Time: 10min
Serves: 2-4
Preparation time: 10 min
Cooking Time:-
What you need to make this dish:
Sharp knife, bamboo mat, bowl with warm water, plate, small bowl for soy sauce

  • Nori paper
  • 200 gr sushi rice, cooked and cooled
  • 1/2 ripe avocado, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled and sliced
  • 3 crab fingers
  • 4 grilled mushrooms, cooled
  • Mayonnaise
  • Soy sauce

How to prepare:
Prepare the bamboo mat, place on it a piece of Nori, and spread out a thin layer of the rice on 4/5 of the Nori, leaving free space at the top of the Nori. Flatten the rice, so it sticks well to the paper. Now put some mayonnaise in a line near the center, more to the bottom side of the sushi. On it you can put now the avocado, cucumber, crab fingers  and mushrooms. Next, lift the bottom of the bamboo mat and turn over the part with the filling so its covered. Now, you have to squish it a little so it sticks, then, giving it a little tug and making sure the filling is securely under the Nori, start rolling to the top, until you have the un-riced space left. Here you use your finger. Wet the finger with water, and moisten the Nori so that it sticks to the rest of the roll. Now roll the rest and you’re nearly done. Now you have to take a sharp knife and cut in a sawing way the roll, so it doesn’t fall out in the edges, and the slices are even. Serve on a plate with a small bowl filled with soy sauce. You’ve finished!

Additional information:
You can use nearly anything you want in sushi fillings. Have some leftover  cream cheese? Put it in. Tomato? Slice it in also.
