Mango Sushi

My Chris is a wonderful weirdo!  For someone who never liked fish, she utterly adores sushi!  Since we became vegans, it has been hard to find dairy-free ,vegetarian rolls to satisfy her cravings, so I decided to take matters into my own hands and created these magnificent mango sushi rolls!

Ingredients

  • 8 sheets nori (seaweed for sushi)
  • 1 mango
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 small cucumber
  • 1 c shoestring carrots
  • 2 c red cabbage
  • 2 avocados
  • FOR THE RICE
  • 2 c sushi rice
  • 4 c water
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1/4 c rice vinegar
  • OPTIONAL
  • pickled ginger
  • wasabi
  • soy sauce

Directions


1. Cook the 2 cups of rice with the 4 cups water in a rice cooker or on stove top according to package.
2. Prepare the filling. Cut the mango, bell pepper, and cucumber into spears.
3. In a small sauce pan, combine sugar and vinegar and warm over medium heat, stirring often until sugar fully dissolves. Once rice has cooked, stir in the sugar-vinegar mixture. Set aside and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes. Rice should be sticky, but not wet, when ready.
4. Place a sheet of nori on a sushi rolling mat. Spoon on some rice, then use a large spoon to stretch the rice out over the nori in a thin, even layer (see picture above).  Leave one inch, on the farthest side, without rice.
5. Place all of the filling ingredients about 1/2 inch in from the edge closest to you (see picture above). Use the mat to roll the sushi.
6. Repeat until you have completed 8 rolls. Slice avocado and place slice on top of an uncut roll. Place a sheet of parchment paper over the roll with the avocado slices and gently shape avocado so that it sticks around the roll. Use a sharp knife (fillet knives work best) to cut into pieces.
7. If desired, top with pickled ginger and mix together soy sauce and wasabi to make a dipping sauce.
