Ingredients

Sushi rice

1 cup(s), (200g)

Rice wine vinegar

3 tsp

Sushi seasoning

3 tsp

Fresh ginger

2 tsp, finely grated

Lebanese cucumber

½ small, finely diced

Carrot(s)

½ small, finely diced

Sesame seeds

2 tbs

Roasted seaweed

1 packet(s), (5g). crushed

Soy sauce

1 tbs

Wasabi paste

1 tsp, (optional)

Instructions

  1. Cook rice following packet instructions. Transfer to a glass or plastic container. Stir through vinegar and sushi seasoning using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Refrigerate until cool enough to handle.
  2. Stir ginger, cucumber, carrot, sesame seeds and seaweed through rice until well combined. Scoop 1 heaped tablespoon of rice mixture and squeeze between your wet hands to form a ball (by compressing it the rice will stick together better). Continue to make 24 balls.
  3. Keep in a container in fridge until ready to serve. Serve with soy sauce and wasabi.

Notes

TIP: Only ever use a wooden spoon when handling sushi rice, as a metal spoon can break the rice, and the metal can react with the vinegar in the seasoning and make it taste unpleasant. Sushi balls will keep in fridge for up to 3 days.
