Sushi Bowls



I know I am! ๐Ÿ™‚

presents bought and wrapped – check
baking done – check
contracted the flu? – check (oh boy…)

Besides not being able to eat because of the flu, I’ve been trying to eat lighter and healthier these past few weeks so that I can shove my face full without guilt in the next couple of days ๐Ÿ™‚ This recipe is easy, quick, TASTY, and great all year round! Check it out!



The ingredients I used were pretty simple. I got everything at my local grocery store. My favourite sushi soy sauce, pickled ginger, roasted seaweed, ready-to-eat crab, sesame seeds plus some others.

…but really…the possibilities are endless.



This is sushi rice, you cook it in water, coat in a sort of sushi ‘dressing’, then let cool in plastic/wood bowl by a window or fan. The ‘dressing’ includes sugar, salt, and rice vinegar.


I put it in a big bowl to spread it out more and let it cool faster. In the meantime grate some carrots, matchstick some avocado and cucumber and prepare anything else you want in it! I like some spicy mayo, soy sauce, pickled ginger and raw sesame seeds. MMMM


Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜€
