Sushi!

Oooh my first time making sushi! It has cucumber, carrots and avocado. I also tried the type with rice on the outside but they looked quite ugly.. so no pictures for you!

Veggie sushi - yum! Did you use a bamboo mat or did you go freestyle? They look very well-rolled.

Hey all!

Melissa, TC and Nikki.. go for it! To answer Kati's question, I did use a bamboo mat. I did some reading first one how to prepare the rice and such. Then I got lucky! I was having a job interview at Wegman's and told the lady I was going to make sushi for the first time soon. She offered to have their sushi lady give me a little instruction.. so she showed me how to do it.

When you roll it, keep pulling the ingredients in and make everything tight! And give it a bit to set up before you cut it! I think it is definitely something worth trying.. I was worried at first but it was so much easier than I thought!
