Vegetarian Gunkan Maki Sushi with Avocado & Apple
Japanese gunkan maki are boat-shaped sushi consisting of an oval of rice wrapped in seaweed/nori. These vegetarian gunkan maki are really easy to make at home
Mix apple and avocado cubes with mayonnaise in a bowl.
Cut nori sheet: cut a strip of 3 cm on one side against the lines and put aside.
Cut 4 nori strips using the given lines and set aside ready (approx. 3 cm x 15 cm 4 sheets).
Form 4 x20 g sushi rice into oval balls with wet fingers.
Place a nori strip around each ball, "glue" it with a few grains of the sticky rice and press it well.
Place one portion of the prepared apple-avocado-mixture on each rice ball.
Arrange gunkan with fine apple strips and avocado to garnish and serve with Kikkoman soy sauce.
When cooking rice, use the ratio of rice: water = 1 : 1. Less water is used when preparing sushi rice than when preparing conventional rice.
*For sushi rice (approx. 1 kg cooked sushi rice)
Cook 450g sushi rice in 450ml water according to pack instructions. Then season with 100 ml Kikkoman seasoning for sushi rice or alternatively a mix of 70 ml rice vinegar, 30 g sugar and 15 g salt.
