Something New Every Day

A record of doing a new thing every day in 2011

Home made Vegetarian Sushi (117/365) Wednesday April 27, 2011

I eat sushi (vegetarian obviously) reasonably often, but I’ve never made my own before.

Our local Tesco has all the stuff required in the specialist food section, including a bamboo rolling mat. There were precise instructions for doing the rice and it turned out pretty well (very sticky!). For filling I used, shittake mushrooms, chilli, garlic, spring onions and finiely chopped pepper.

As you can see from the photo the finished result definitely looked like proper sushi, and with some super-hot wasabi sauce they tasted OK too. Quite fiddly to do, but will definitely experiment with doing this again.
