Vegetarian Sushi

If you like Sushi then make it home, its really easy to make and taste great.
You can also watch a video on how to make Vegetarian-sushi here.

  • 1 cup of sushi rice
  • 1 1/4 cup of water
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup of rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp of sugar 
  • 2 Ripe avocados
  • 4-5 sheets of nori (dried seaweed)
  • To serve with - 
  • soy sauce 
  • pickled Sushi ginger
  • wasabi paste

  1. Wash rice in strainer until water runs clear.
  2. Cook in a pot, bring water to boil, then cover and let simmer for approximately 20 minutes or until the rice has absorbed the water and sticks together. (else cook in rice cooker)
  3. Allow rice to cool for around 15-20 minutes and add rice vinegar, salt and sugar.
  4. Gently fold rice until mixed well.
  5. Allow the rice to cool to room temperature. (max you can cool it for an hour, easier to handle)
  6. Once the rice is ready to go, you can place your Nori on a bamboo mat or aluminum foil.
  7. Make sure the rough side of the Nori is facing up.
  8. Before handling the rice, pour a little water and rice vinegar into a small bowl or measuring cup.
  9.  Dip your fingers in this mixture and it will keep the rice from from sticking to your fingers.
  10. Roll the Vegetarian Sushi
  11. Place your thumbs underneath the sushi mat and fold the seaweed over.
  12. Use your fingers to tuck the edge of the seaweed firmly under the ingredients.
  13. Now, continue rolling until all of the seaweed is wound around the sushi.
  14. Cut the Sushi Rolls
  15. To cut the sushi rolls, you will need a sharp knife.
  16. Wet the blade of the knife so that it does not stick to the rice in the roll.
  17. Cut the sushi roll into pieces about three quarters to one inch wide.
  18. Between cuts, turn the roll one quarter turn so that it will remain round and will not get squished as you are cutting. 
  19. Serve the sushi with soy sauce and enjoy.
