One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to learn how to make my own vegetarian sushi. I’m OBSESSED with my favorite sushi restaurant, Cowfish. I’ve been watching countless YouTube videos on how to prepare sushi, and finally decided to take the plunge today.
Sushi is hard!
My ingredients included baked and breaded zucchini, raw cucumber, raw beets, and cream cheese.
I bought organic nori and special short-grain brown rice, too.
After prepping the sushi rice in accordance with this video, I set to work.
The hardest part was getting the courage to flip the nori and roll the sushi. I knew I needed to be confident and firm, but I was super nervous and unsure so I made the Husband’s roll first. 🙂
Tada (kind of)!
- My brown rice was sticky, but too soggy.
- Why did my beets bleed all over my rolls but when I get sushi at Cowfish, their beets do not bleed?
- What kind of knife am I suppose to use? My knives aren’t sharp enough to cut through the rolls without squishing them.
I definitely want to keep learning how to make my own sushi (I think a rice cooker would make this whole process easier), but I also can’t help but think that Cowfish’s rolls are much tastier and only $4. Sometimes, takeout really is the best option.
I think I’m going to go eat a bowl of cereal instead of the remainder of my sushi. 😉
Did the sushi taste bad? Or was it just not as pretty as you hoped? I have never tried making sushi because when there are fine motor skills involved in a recipe, I usually fail!
