Alternative title lazy person's sushi! This is what I indulged for lunch today after some hours of essay writing (Read: attempts at essay writing). It is perhaps one of my favourite meals. Why? Because it has all the same flavours as regular sushi- only less hassle, less fiddling and less time consuming. Cooking the rice is the longest part of the process. We like that.

It is also provides a great chance to clean the fridge, as you can put almost whatever veg in there.


+ Toppings of choice, I used:

  •  avocado
  • carrot
  • cucumber
  • red cabbage 
  • a nori sheet
  • mushrooms marinated in some lemon juice

You'll need: 

  • 2½ dl uncooked rice
  • 2 tbsp. tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 2 tbsp. rice vinegar
  • freshly grated ginger (opt.)


Cook the rice according to instructions. Meanwhile, you may start chopping whatever vegs you fancy. Once the rice is cooked, wait for it to cool down a little before adding the tamari, vinegar + ginger. Stir to combine. Portion the rice and add your toppings!
