Sushi rolls with Quinoa and Wasabi Mayo
Make fresh sushi with sprouted quinoa and microgreens
- 1 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
- 300g sprouted white quinoa
- 1/2 cucumber
- 2 avocadoes
- 2tbsp pickled ginger
- 8 sushi sheets
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Mix the rice vinegar, sugar, and salt and let sit for about 5 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved. Add in the quinoa sprouts.
- Mixed microgreens – Micro mustards, radish, peas
- 2dl mayonnaise with 1 – 2 tsp of wasabi powder & 1 tsp of soy sauce
PREPARE SUSHI ROLL
- Cut the cucumber in half-length wise, and cut the halves into approximately 15cm long sticks, slightly less than 1/2cm thick. Cut the avocadoes in half and remove the pits. Scoop out the avocado flesh and slice it lengthwise. Cut the pickled ginger into smaller pieces.
- Place a thin kitchen towel or bamboo mat on the kitchen counter. Put a sushi sheet in the middle, glossy side down.
- Spread the quinoa sprouts evenly over the sushi sheet, but leave 1-2 cm empty along the upper edge of the sheet so you can close the roll.
- Please the cucumber sticks, avocado, pickled ginger, and a few microgreens in a line about 2 cm in from the edge nearest to you.
- Carefully, but as tightly as you can roll up the sushi sheet. Make sure the filling doesn’t get pushed out forward. Roll the sheet until you’ve almost reached the upper edge. Press the roll together and hold it like this for a bit. Moisten the upper edge of the sheet with water and finish rolling the sushi all together. Repeat with the remaining.
- Cut the rolls into approximately 2 cm thick slices.
Add a dollop of wasabi mayo on each slice and garnish with more microgreens.
