Vegetarian Maki

Delicious, easy, healthy vegetarian sushi rolls - probably the easiest and quickest meal

You will need:
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 cucumber
  • Tofu
  • Olive oil
  • Nori (seaweed sheets)
  • 1 & 1/2 cups Sushi rice
  • 2 cups of water
  • Ginger
  • Japanese soy sauce
  • Wasabi
  • A bamboo rolling mat
  • 3 tablespoons of Japanese rice vinegar
  • Sesame seeds
  1. Wash and cook the rice either in a pot or rice cooker
  2. When the rice is cooked, mix the rice vinegar throughout it and leave the rice in the fridge to cool
  3. While it cools, peel the cucumber and finely slice it along with the avocado
  4. Slice the tofu into strips and fry it in olive oil on each side until it i crispy
  5. Grate the carrot
  6. Once the rice has cooled, lay  down the rolling mat and place the nori over it
  7. Spread the rice all over of the way over the nori, leaving half an ich on either edge without rice
  8. Sprinkle the sesame seeds lightly over the rice
  9. Place your grated carrots, avocado, tofu and cucumber slices on the rice near to the edge of the mat
  10. Lift the mat and tightly roll it up, shaping it into a square if you would like to
  11. Brush water with your finger over the outside edge of the nori without rice and press it against the roll so it sticks
  12. With a sharp knife, cut the roll into pieces and serve with wasabi, ginger and soy sauce
