No! Don't say it, don't THINK it!!
......you did that on purpose didn't you. Rude.
I am thoroughly convinced that unless you are allergic to rice there is a sushi out there that ANYONE can enjoy. Sushi is one of the most customizable foods I can think of, it can fit anyone! Vegetarian, gluten free, raw fish scaredy cats, seaweed haters, religious food restrictions. SER.I.OUS.LY you guys. Sushi can be amazing, you can do anything you want with it!! Just give it a chance! It is in my top five favorite foods, I was so upset that I waited 18 years of my life to try it. And I waited 6 more years to try to make it myself! It is way too easy, all you have to do is cook the rice and the stove does most of that for you.
Hubs and I tried our hand at making sushi a few months ago and it was one of the best days of my life. Honestly! I just happened to document the whole thing so you can try it yourself.
To make sushi, you will need:
- Sushi rice (I subbed jasmine rice with amazing results)
- Rice vinegar
- Sesame oil
- Nori (aka, roasted seaweed sheets)
- Filling: veggies, meats, cheeses, seriously, whatever you want
- Sushi rolling mat
- Wax paper
If you've never made sushi before, you should really give it a try. This is a great meal that you can make with your kids, there is next to no cooking and each child can choose what they want in their roll! You don't HAVE to put raw fish in it! Fill it full of chicken nuggets and garnish it with ketchup if you want.
.......ok no. Don't do that. Gross.
