We like to use our Perfectly Cooked Brown Rice recipe.

Avocado Temaki (Hand Roll)

goop

Don’t forget to vinegar the rice if you’re making it yourself. Also, getting fresh wasabi to grate for the roll makes all the difference.

makes 2

1 sheet nori, cut in half

1 avocado, sliced into thin strips

1 small cucumber, peeled, deseeded & sliced in thin strips

½ cup cooked brown sushi rice

tamari or soy sauce

fresh wasabi, grated

pickled ginger (optional)

1. Place the nori on a bamboo mat or a piece or parchment shiny side down.

2. Wet one of your hands slightly to grab a small palmful of rice. Place the rice on the left side of your nori and press your index finger into the rice to create a small dent where you will lay your fillings.

3. Rub a bit of grated wasabi onto the rice. Place a few thin slices of cucumber and a few slices of avocado diagonally across the rice, pointing to the upper-right corner of the nori.

4. Fold the left hand corner over and roll upwards around the rice and the filling. (At this point it’s best to pick up the roll and finish the rolling with your hands.) Continue rolling the long part of the nori around the rice and filling until you reach the end. Seal by rubbing the edge with a touch of water.

5. Serve with soy sauce or tamari and pickled ginger.
