Sushi is a wonderful and healthy delicacy, but it is very hard to replicate at home. The FITgals are here to help! Inspired by the Korean tradition of eating rice and seaweed at every meal, you can turn almost any meal into a mock sushi roll. Here’s how:
- Make sticky rice (the best way is with the use of a rice cooker but you can also try this method for stove-top sticky rice). Use brown rice for a healthier meal!! Try just hungry’s tips for making yummy sticky brown rice.
- While the rice is cooking, prepare any ingredients you may want for your stuffing. Some FITapproved favorites include: carrots, avocados, cucumbers, easy teriyaki salmon, kimchi (to be found at Whole Foods), an omelet, sautéed teriyaki mushrooms (sesame oil, mushrooms, garlic and teriyaki sauce)….the list goes on and on. Basically, anything you would eat with rice will be excellent for this dish!
- Take seaweed (there are multiple places to buy packaged seaweed and multiple brands that are great). The packaging should look like this:
- Once the rice is ready (which takes about 60 minutes), place all the chosen ingredients in small bowls on the table, open the seaweed, and place the rice on the plate. Then make your own little mock roll. Take the seaweed, fill with rice, top with ingredient of choice, wrap and enjoy!
