Sushi song

Vegetarian Sushi

10 sheets of nori

2 cups sushi rice (sticky white rice)

3 cups of water

1 large ripe avacado

2 carrots

1 block of tofu

1/4 cup tamari of soy sauce

1 red pepper

Dipping sauce:

1/2 cup tamari

1 tsp wasabi (we like the paste best, it is the hottest)Bring the water to a boil, add rice. Cover and simmer on low heat for 1/2 hour. Slice tofu into strips and marinate in tamari. Cut avacado in half , remove pit and scoop out with a tablespoon. slice all the veggies into long thin strips. When the rice is cooked, lay the first sheet of nori out place two heaping table spoons of rice at the edge closest to youand spred it out evenly across that edge. Place the veggie and tofu strips on the rice. Grab the sushi by the corners, the lift and begin to roll. The rice is sticky so it will roll easily. Continue rolling till you are 1" from the end of the nori sheet. Wet the edge with water and finish the roll. Cut the roll in the center with a sharp serrated knife. cut each half 2 more times so each roll yeilds six pieces. Continue until all the rice, nori sheets and veggies are used up. Serve with a bowl of tamari and wasabi mixed together as a dip. Pickled ginger also add an incredible taste and a beautiful colour to the dish, serve on the side.
