The first sushi I ate was handmade by a college friend and her mom back in 2005, and since then I have been hooked. Eating raw fish is not recommended for pregnant women, so I hadn’t eaten sushi since January until I made it last week!
Pregnant and craving sushi? Or trying to watch the budget and am not letting yourself go out for sushi? This is a recipe for people who desire tackling sushi rolling and saving money; feel free to experiment with which vegetables or canned fish to use. Check this out:
1 cup. short grain white rice, cooked according to the directions, so it should be about 2 cups cooked rice
1 tsp. sugar
½ tsp. salt
5 Tblsp. Rice vinegar
The rest of the ingredients:
4 sheets nori (toasted seaweed rolled out into paper)
1 small cucumber
2 leaves romaine lettuce
