Quinoa sushi hand rolls recipe
Fresh and healthy, these delicious morsels make the perfect light meal or party snack.
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon coconut/palm sugar
½ teaspoon sea salt
2 cups cooked quinoa (or ½ cup per roll)
1 packet toasted nori sheets
1 ripe avocado, sliced length ways
1 cucumber, julienned
1 carrot, julienned
1. Prepare all ingredients on a chopping board. On clean, dry surface lay out nori sheets and fill a small cup with lukewarm water.
2. Combine vinegar, sugar and salt in a bowl, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Pour this mixture over the cooked quinoa and combine well.
3. Take ½ cup of quinoa and spread evenly over a nori sheet. Lay out the fillings lengthways in a line. Roll sheet tightly until you get to 1 inch before the edge. Apply lukewarm water to the edge and finish rolling to seal.
4. Using a very sharp knife, slice rolls. Serve with tamari sauce to dip.
Tip: We used avocado, cucumber and carrot to fill the sushi – you can create variations with other yummy ingredients such as mushrooms, eggplant and sweet potato.
