HOSOMAKI VEGETARIAN ROLLS

vegetarian hosomaki sushi rolls

I had some vegetarian friends for dinner the other night who were new to sushi and I wanted to prove to them that Japanese food is not always dishes with fish or meat.

There is a wide choice of sushi for vegetarians and I won them over early on with my Red Pepper and Takuan Hosomaki.

I served them as canapés but Hosomaki are also ideal for a lunchtime snack as they are the smallest sushi rolls.

Hosomaki usually have the nori seaweed sheets on the outside. My friends liked them so much they took home my recipe for this delicious veggy roll so I thought I would share it with you.

First, make some Yutaka sushi rice, which takes about 30 minutes, and then transfer it to a large bowl and fold in some sushi rice seasoning.

For the seasoning, mix 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar, 1 tablespoon of mirin, 2 teaspoons of castor sugar and 1 teaspoon of salt.

Or, if you are in a rush, pop some Yutaka microwaveable rice in for 60 seconds and season to taste with 2 tablespoons of sushi vinegar

Sprinkle in some Black Sesame and Sea Salt Shake (gomashio) for extra flavour.

Cut a nori sheet in half and lay it on your sushi magic machine or hand rolling mat and put on a layer of rice, some sliced red pepper and some sliced Takuan radish.

Roll it up and cut into inch long rolls.

Finally, I like to spice up my Hosomaki by mixing wasabi and soy to make a dip and serving the finished rolls with some gari sushi ginger.

Tuck in and enjoy and look out for more recipes coming soon
