Quinoa sushi hand rolls recipe

A recipe to master the art of sushi at home!

Ingredients

1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

1 teaspoon coconut/palm sugar

½ teaspoon sea salt

2 cups cooked quinoa (or ½ cup per roll)

1 packet toasted nori sheets

1 ripe avocado, sliced length ways

1 cucumber, julienned

1 carrot, julienned

Tamari sauce

Method

1. Prepare all ingredients on a chopping board. On clean, dry surface lay out nori sheets and fill a small cup with lukewarm water.

2. Combine vinegar, sugar and salt in a bowl, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Pour this mixture over the cooked quinoa and combine well.

3. Take ½ cup of quinoa and spread evenly over a nori sheet. Lay out the fillings lengthways in a line. Roll sheet tightly until you get to 1 inch before the edge. Apply lukewarm water to the edge and finish rolling to seal.

4. Using a very sharp knife, slice rolls. Serve with tamari sauce to dip.

Tip: We used avocado, cucumber and carrot to fill the sushi – you can create variations with other yummy ingredients such as mushrooms, eggplant and sweet potato.
