How To Make Sushi Without Bamboo Mat?
How to Prepare Sushi Without a Grass Mat – Begin by preparing sticky sushi rice (or try this brown rice version) and chopping your preferred vegetables. In the Midwest, we have limited access to sushi-grade seafood, so I typically stick to vegetables.
But if you live near the coast, you should be insane and do it. (Invite me as well, because I adore seafood sushi.) The towel deception: A thick towel functions like a bamboo mat and also cleans up your mess: a win-win situation. Because it is so flexible, rice can be effortlessly shaped and rolled into a beautiful roll.
Oh how I adore taking short cuts! This method allows you to make traditional sushi rolls as well as inside-out rolls (rice on the outside, nori on the inside). WHAAAATT? Simply flatten the rice, flip it over gently, top with vegetables, and roll as usual.
- You can also top your rolls with avocado by layering thin slices of ripe avocado, covering them with plastic wrap, and re-forming them with a towel.
- Slice, remove packaging, and voilà! So simple and a significant “wow” effect.
- Your peers will be awestruck.
- What then prevents you from making sushi at home? Nada.
Now, my child, go forth and make rolls!
