Sushi (California Rolls)

 Seaweed, rice wine vinegar and Sticky rice are all available at an Asian market. Many grocery stores will also carry them in the Oriental aisle. NOTE: You must use sticky rice or sushi rice, regular or quick rice will not work!

cook 1 c sticky rice according to package directions
Place in bowl and toss with 1/8 c rice wine vinegar

slice and prepare vegetables and crab.
I use imitation crab sticks, English cucumbers, peeled, seeded and sliced into long strips.
You can slice avocado, asparagus, etc. make it vegan with no meat.

You can also make your sushi with raw fish, shrimp, sliced salmon, tuna etc.
Use a sushi mat, also available at an Asian market, however this is not needed, it just makes rolling a little easier.

Place seaweed onto mat

Spread cooked rice evenly over seaweed and place filling inside, and roll up.
Wrap in plastic and let sit an hour in fridge. Slice when ready to serve.
Use horseradish, sweet and sour or Thai dipping sauce
