Yesterday, I was seriously tempted to have Nick stop by Kroger on the way home so I could get a package of brown rice veggie sushi.
But after making a list for a fun blogger package I’m sending soon, I decided I should save the $6 for the sushi and make my own “sushi plate” at home today!
Plus, I had all the ingredients I needed so it really would have been money wasted.
I made some fancy formed rice in a ramekin :) Pack the rice in the ramekin and then flip it over on your plate – so easy!
The rice is just brown rice mixed with some soy sauce, ground ginger, salt, and vinegar.
I had no cucumber in the house, but this veggie mixture worked great! I grated 1 small carrot and mixed it with some diced red, orange, and yellow peppers and half of an avocado.
For my sides, I heated up some leftover edamame and broccoli.
This plate was exactly what I wanted today AND I didn’t have to spend any extra money!
For some reason, Maggie is not feeling well today :(
I’m going to cuddle her for the rest of my lunch break.
Do you like sushi? What are your favorites?
I’ve actually only tried “real” sushi once (as in, raw fish). I’m just scared when I’m not sure how good the restaurant is, and we don’t have many places around here that are known for good sushi.
