Rebekah loves getting into the kitchen with me and cooking. And to get out of a rut that I've been in with our meals around here I decided to get out some of my kids cookbooks and make atleast one new meal every couple of weeks with her - good on the job training don't you think?
So, we made Sushi today. Now in years gone by when I had a lot more time I used to get out my recipe books and cook new things frequently. Back then I had a great recipe for Sushi which was much more involved, so when I saw this simple recipe I had to try it. And guess what - it tasted pretty good - as per my two home grown food critics!
Here's some pictures I took earlier today (we had it for lunch) :
We saved some for Ron and his comment was "oh this looks just like the Sushi you get in the shops" :) I'm not sure what he expected my Sushi to look like or what that says about me as a cook!!! I know I'm not a master chef but c'mon I can cook cook a little (just teasing honey) (he does read my blog but never comments!).
So, the basic recipe is to cook some sushi rice, add some japanese/ sushi vinegar to it, place it onto your sea weed sheets with whatever filling you desire, roll them up and cut it to whatever length you desire. (All of these are available at the local supermarket these days). Ours was cucumber with avocado and tuna with avocado, yum!
Something tells me we'll be making this for a long time around here because not only was it healthy and yummy but it was also very easy and as I always tell my friends - in the kitchen I am "Queen of Easy"!
