Avocado and Corn Sushi


Did you come here looking for Orange Tian. Like every month, I planned on doing the daring bakers challenge in time, but ended up postponing it to the last minute. So it's reveal date, and my orange tian is still a work-in-progress.

Which means it's time for another lazy dinner. Trust me, for all the hype, sushi is the easiest thing to put together. Buy some pre-toasted nori sheets. Cook sushi rice as per package directions. Spread the rice in a plate and for each cup of cooked rice, pour over a tbsp of rice vinegar, mixed with a tsp of sugar and a pinch of salt, then warmed to mix everything.

Spread this rice on the nori sheet, then heap your choice of fillings on one corner. I picked avocade and corn, and spread them in layers over the rice (which is the picture you see above). Then I thought it will be too bland and poured half a tbsp of soy sauce over the veggies. Rolled it all up, the steam from the warm rice sealing the nori sheet, and then cut it into five pieces.

So next time you are off to eat that overpriced sushi, remember this takes less than half an hour from start to finish.
