Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of white rice
  • 10 nori (seaweed) sheets
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 packet of imitation crab meat
  • Sesame seeds

Directions:

Combine the rice and about 3 ¼ cups of water in a rice cooker and leave it to cook according to the timing given on the rice’s packet. Spread the rice. Cover a bamboo sushi mat with a plastic wrap. Place half of the nori sheet on the rough side of the mat.

Moisten your hands and scoop a handful of rice and place it on the nori. Press the rice to spread it evenly to the edges of the nori sheet, moistening your fingers periodically. Sprinkle some sesame seeds.

Wash and prepare the vegetables. Slice them into thin, straw-like slices lengthwise. Slice the strips of imitation crab meat into thin slices and insert a few into the roll.

Add the filling onto the rice. Carefully flip over the nori so the rice is facing downwards on the mat with the short end facing you.

Roll the sushi away from you with your hands, tucking in the vegetables as it rolls along. Remove the mat from under the roll and place is n top. Press the roll into a compact, rectangular log using the mat to help you.

Slice the roll with a sharp knife into bite-sized pieces.
