Tofu Nori Rolls 1 review

Sushi is a great food to know how to make. Perfect for parties, picnics, lunches and work!

Serves 1 | Prep time: 10 mins | Cooking time: 35 mins


  • 1/3 cup uncooked brown rice
  • 1 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp caster sugar
  • 1-2 nori sheets
  • 1/2 small red capsicum, cut into thin strips
  • 1/4 Lebanese cucumber, cut into thin strips
  • 1/4 medium avocado (optional)
  • 1/4 carrot, grated
  • 1/4 cup green lettuce
  • 100g / 3.5oz fried tofu cut into strips
  • soy sauce (use Tamari for GF option)


  1. Place rice and 2/3 cup water in a saucepan with lid over medium heat. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes or until water has absorbed. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 10 minutes.
  2. Place vinegar and sugar in a bowl and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Transfer rice to a large dish and separate the rice so there aren’t any big clumps. Slowly add the vinegar mixture, folding it into the rice until it has cooled.
  4. Place 1 nori sheet shiny-side down on a sushi mat. Using damp fingers, spread rice over nori, leaving a 2cm (nearly 1in) strip at one end. Arrange the fillings thinly over the centre of the rice. Using the sushi mat, roll up firmly to form a roll then cut into slices.
  5. Repeat with remaining nori sheet then serve with soy sauce.

    I am trying to follow your 30 day menu, as I need to learn a lot about menu, diet, and meal planning in general. and vegan meal planning in particular. This is the 2nd meal of the 3rd day, and is displaying ingredients that are not on your ingredient list (nori and caster sugar). This makes it very difficult to learn about meal planning, and tends to throw my whole days menu into confusion.

      Our apologies – we missed listing the nori sheets! The caster sugar is listed under the ‘Other’ category.
      Thanks for notifying us. We’ll add nori sheets to the Week 1 list of ingredients.
