Sushi - Cucumber Roll
The yin and yang of sushi - Nice cool cucumber and nice spicy wasabi all wrapped up in a little roll...
1 Sheet Nori
1 Cup Sushi rice
1/2 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and cut into long strips
Start by cutting your nori in half. put the shiny side down. Spread out a half cup sided ball of sushi rice over the rice. I find that it's easy to roll if you spread the rice all the way to the edges and keep it even.
Once you have your rice spread out, put a line of prepared wasabi down the middle of the rice from side to side. Use as little or as much as you like here. Go easy because they can always add more when they are eating it. Lay down a good quantity of the cucumber right in the middle of the roll.
Use your mat to roll up the roll. Cut into pieces - Eat & Enjoy!
