Gluten-Free Veggie Sushi Made with Slice of Rice™
I was very excited to receive the Slice of Rice™ samples from Richard Cronk after connecting with him on Twitter @rhcronk. We received a kit with the samples, several sheets of nori and a bamboo rolling mat.
So this was our first time to make sushi at home and it was just so simple! Each rice sheet has a specific side that sticks to the nori and is easily rolled with a bamboo rolling mat. The rice tasted great with a hint of sweet organic rice vinegar.
We made two types of veggie rolls: one with carrots, cucumber, scallion, avocado, red and yellow bell pepper; and the other with mango, avocado and pickled jalapenos (not very traditional but yummy nevertheless). It was so fun and easy to roll delicious veggie sushi in a matter of minutes.
These rice sheets are such a cool idea. Once available in stores, they will come in the frozen food section. When ready to use, just thaw while prepping the other ingredients. Then roll. Then cut. Then eat.
I usually have a few veggies left over from cooking during the week. It would be so awesome to have a stash of Slice of Rice™ in the freezer so I could just thaw one and fill with my left over veggies. It truly is a canvas to create any type of sushi. We need to help get these into our grocery stores by spreading the word!!!!
Check out the Crowdfunder TV show. Viewers can support the Slice of Rice™ project by contributing directly to the campaign website. The show rewards contributors with gift cards from sponsors like Starbucks or Home Depot for the same amount of money. That seems like a win, win to me!
