Nori - Sushi Roll
To make this vegetarian you can use veggie sausage or leave the meat out all togeather.Growing up in Hawaii we would have Sushi all the time. But I had never made it myself till a year or two ago when Kalani's cousin Shannon lived here. I still have some work to do on my rolling technique :).
A very common way to make sushi is to make Nori (rolls). There are all kinds of stuff you can put in Nori. That is what I made today for lunch.
1 portion su-meshi
1/2 small Japanese eggplant
5 sheets nori (seaweed)
6 shiitake mushrooms
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tbsp crushed ginger
pinch crushed red pepper
Mix soy sauce ginger and red pepper. Cut eggplants and mushrooms into strips. Soak eggplant and mushroom. Cut remaining vegetable in strips. Place rice on nori (wet your hands when spreading the rice, so that it does not stick to you). Place vegetables on rice (see picture bellow). Roll (again I am no expert here). Cut it into slices and serve with ginger, soy sauce and wasabi.
You can see the amount made from this recipe ( I also had left over vegetables).
