Rainbow Sushi



Peppers for Red
Babycorn for yellow
Paneer for white
Leeks for green
Scallions for a lighter green
Beets for purple
And black nori to wrap it all up

I thought that rolling six vegetables in such a tiny sushi will present a challenge so I first rolled the veggies in nori and sealed it with a little water to make a cylinder. Then, on a longer nori sheet, I spread sushi rice, placed the nori-veggie roll on one side and rolled it into a rainbow colored sushi.

Rainbow sushi makes it's way to Lavi who is hosting AWED : Japanese this month.
