I decided to try making sushi at home and it was a success! This is our favorite meal to enjoy on the weekends. I haven’t gotten too fancy with it yet, so I just stick to easy vegetables for now. It is so yummy and it’s a fun meal to make with your friends/significant other.

P.S. I bought the Sushi Nori paper on Amazon, and it came with a free 9in x 9in Bamboo Matt. The bamboo matt is not necessary though. 


3 Cups Sushi Rice, cooked and cooled – Nishiki Medium Grain Rice is what I use

(I mixed the cooked rice with a splash of rice vinegar and a pinch of white sugar)

Organic Sushi Nori Premium Roasted Seaweed Paper
Alfalfa Sprouts
Sliced Carrots
Sliced Cucumber


  1. Lay the sushi paper on the bamboo mat.
  2. Add the cooked rice evenly over the sushi paper.  (Optional – Take a flat cutting board wrapped in suran wrap, and press it onto the rice so it is packed and evenly on the sushi paper.)
  3. Add your favorite vegetables to the side of the mat that’s closest to you.
  4. Once you have everything ready, slowly roll the sushi paper with the bamboo mat, away from you as tight and organized as possible.
  5. Feel free to cut it into sushi bites; if mine is usually too full, it becomes a sushi burrito! 🙂
