Here's what you'll need...

You'll Need:

– 3 cups cooked sushi rice – 2 sheets nori – 2-3 tablespoons sesame seeds – ½ cucumber peeled, seeded, julienned – 1 medium carrot peeled, julienned – ½ avocado thinly sliced


- Bamboo Rolling Mat - Mixing Bowls - Sharp Knife - Cutting Board - Rice Maker (optional)


Prepare the sushi rice and allow it to cool.


Cut both sheets of nori in half. Lay one piece of nori shiny side down, on a bamboo mat covered in plastic wrap. Spread about ¾ cup of rice evenly on the nori sheet. 


If needed, wet hands to help spread the rice. If desired, sprinkle with ½ tablespoon of white or black sesame seeds, making sure they adhere to the rice.


Flip the nori over (rice side facing down). Place a few slices of carrot and cucumber along the bottom of the nori. Add a few slices of avocado right above.


Grab the nori and the rolling mat. Fold the nori over until it touches itself. Continue rolling until a complete roll is formed. Squeeze gently, but firmly. Repeat with remaining 3 nori sheets.


Transfer to a cutting board. With a very sharp knife, slice roll into 8 slices. Wipe knife on a damp cloth in between each cut to keep the rice from sticking. Serve immediately with wasabi and pickled ginger.
