Write a review
  1. 1 cup uncooked sushi rice
  2. 1 3/4 cups water
  3. 3 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
  4. 2 Tbsp sugar
  5. 1/2 tsp salt
  6. 4 sheets nori (dried seaweed)
  7. 1 red pepper
  8. 1 large carrot
  9. 1 hello pepper
  10. 1 green onion
  11. 1 small avocado
  12. 1/2 cup purple micro greens (I used amaranth) or very thinly sliced or shredded purple cabbage
  13. a handful of blue edible flowers
  14. Soy sauce/tamari, pickled ginger, wasabi (optional // for serving)
  1. Rinse rice in a fine mesh strainer until your water runs clear. Add to a medium saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Once it boils reduce heat to low, cover and cook until water is completely absorbed – about 15-20 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, add vinegar, sugar and salt to a small saucepan and heat over medium heat stirring occasionally until sugar and salt are dissolved. Place in a jar or dish and set aside to cool.
  3. Once the rice is done, remove from heat and add the vinegar mixture, stirring gently with a fork as to not over-mix.
  4. Slice your veggies into thin pieces.
  5. Lay your sushi roller flat and cover completely (both sides) with plastic wrap, Using your hands dipped in water (to avoid sticking), pat a very thin and even layer of rice all over the plastic.
  6. Lay a sheet of nori over the rice and pat gently, so that the rice sticks to it.
  7. Arrange a serving of your veggies and micro greens in a line at the bottom 3/4 of the rice closest to you.
  8. Start to roll the mat, nori and rice over with your fingers, molding and compressing into a tight roll . Continue until it’s all the way rolled up.
  9. Slice with a sharp knife.
  10. Garnish with blue flowers.
  11. Serve with pickled ginger, soy sauce and wasabi.

    Hey Jennifer I really love your rainbow sushi row. It taste great! I also added some mayo and sriracha sauce while I used 2 cups of rice, left the rice vinegar as it was and used 1 teaspoon of salt. Turned out wonderful!
