Sushi from the store can be quite expensive...sushi's quite good for you, very easy to make and extremely tasty! Here's a recipe for sushi rice so that you can get rolling!
- 2 cups short-grain rice or sushi rice (NOT long-grained!!!!)
- 2 1/4 cups water
- 4 tablespoons sushi vinegar
- 1/3 cup rice vinegar (or white vinegar)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
Bring water to a boil.
Pour in rice and boil for one minute, uncovered.
Cover and reduce heat to simmer.
Simmer for 20 minutes.
Let sit for 10 minutes, uncovered.
Put into large non-metal bowl and cut in sushi vinegar with a wooden spatula.
Let the rice cool further- one method is to spread the rice out on aluminum foil on a cookie sheet to cool.
Use to roll your sushi!
