My first homemade sushi, that is. BF and I have been wanting to try our hand at sushi making for quite a while, so we finally bit the bullet and bought the supplies. I kept the fillings simple, and tried a few different kinds of sushi.
Overall it wasn’t that difficult. The rolls came together okay even without the use of a bamboo mat, but it turned out our knives weren’t very sharp. My rolls got pretty mangled when I tried to cut them, but I kind of squeezed each piece back together, and they held together alright with chopsticks.
Everything tasted good, but I think my favorite was the nigiri in the middle. I’m a sucker for white rice but try to choose brown more often, so the huge bites of seasoned rice were really good.
The second best part of homemade sushi? Leftovers = sushi bowl! Or sushi tupperware, as it were.
We had fun playing with our food, and will definitely attempt sushi again in the near future.
On a side note, I bought a ticket to the VegNews Vegan a Go-Go Book Bash on October 3rd. I also plan on going to World Veg Festival Weekend on October 4th or 5th. Anybody else plan on going to either?
On another side note, I got a job! BF has some second interviews going on, so hopefully soon we’ll be looking for a place to live and I can get back to my regularly scheduled life. I’m pretty excited, and also pretty overwhelmed. I have to remember to take everything one step at a time, and getting a job was the first very important step.
