My family have been taking vegetarian since 11 years ago when my first child was just 3 months old. If we compare the popularity of vegetarian now and 11 years ago, we can get vegetarian restaurants easily nowadays, unlike those days which we found very difficult to get a vegetarian restaurant.

However, the vegetarian foods are still not that popular in schools, especially the school that my children are studying in. Therefore, my wife has to cook vegetarian foods for our kids to bring to school and in fact, my wife loves to cook too.

One of the favorite food my wife like to cook is vegetarian sushi. Here is the recipe:-


(A) 3 sheets roasted laver

(B) 3 cucumbers
     3 carrots
     3 Japanese preserved radish
     3 slices vegetarian ham
      (all cut into strips)
      (optional, you can add in some avocado for healthier diet)

(C) A dash of Japanese soy sauce
     A bit of wasabi (optional, depends on your taste)

(D) 300g Japanese rice - soaked for 1 hour
     2 1/4 cups water

(E) Seasoning
     2 table spoon Japanese vinegar
     1 1/2 table spoon sugar
     1/2 tea spoon salt


To cook rice:-

Cook (D) in a rice cooker. When it is done, leave it for 15 minutes to dry. Loosen the rice and add in seasoning. Cover it and leave it aside.

To prepare sushi:-

Place a piece of laver on the sushi rolling mat. Spread the rice evenly and arrange (B) on top of it. Roll and squeeze as tight as possible. Cut the sushi with a sharp knife, which is dipped in vinegar. Now it is ready to serve.

Alternatively, sushi can be made into triangle shape as follows:

or put into this "pocket" (sorry I don't know what it is called),

These are various type of sushi for my children to bring to school, cool or cool?
