California Roll In A Bowl


      Get your chop sticks ready....You are going to have so much fun eating this. I'm even
      excited for you! Ha. My husband and I ate Sushi every friday night for years. We were
      completely obsessed. It was a good thing!! My 5 year old loves sushi. I've raised her
      well ; ) This is Sushi with out all the hassle. Perfect for entertaining.

                                                  California Roll In A Bowl

      1 avocado, sliced
      1 carrot, julienned
      1 cucumber, julienned
      sesame seeds, toasted
      crab meat, real or imitation
      nori sheets, sliced. "optional"
      2 cups sushi or short grain rice
      2 cups water, plus more for rinsing rice
      3 tablespoons rice vinegar
      2 tablespoons sugar
      1 tablespoon kosher salt

      1) Place rice in mixing bowl and cover with cool water. Swirl the rice in the water,
      pour off and repeat 2 to 3 times until the water is clear.
      2) Place the rice and 2 cups of water into a medium saucepan and place over high
      heat. Bring to a boil, uncovered. Once it begins to boil, Reduce the heat to the lowest
      setting and cover. Cook for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand, covered,
      10 minutes.
      3) Combine the rice vinegar, sugar and salt in a small bowl and heat in the microwave
      for 30 to 45 seconds. Transfer rice to a large bowl and add vinegar mixture. Fold to
      thoroughly combined. Allow time to cool.
      4) Serve in bowls and place toppings on top. Pour soy, mix and enjoy.

  4. What a fabulous idea! My 3 year old loves nori and crab and cucumbers but not together as a California roll. This will be a good intro.
    Thanks for sharing.

  48. GREAT idea. I've always wanted to try California and other rolls, but never get around to it. I bet I could manage this. Love this and the deconstructed lobster dish.

    Your photos and recipes always look amazing. If you ever do a cookbook, I'll be one of the first on the list to buy it. Otherwise, I'm going to have to make a book of your blog posts, so I remember to try all your wonderful ideas.

  49. I have become slightly obsessed with this dish. We had it for dinner last night. I had it breakfast this morning. And...I will be having it for lunch.

    (I stumbled across your blog over the weekend--so glad I did. I love it!)

    Sunshine & Cheer!
