Sushi roll

Sushi Roll

This sushi roll contains fresh juicy cucumber which when combined with the salty Nori sheet and Soy sauce is really refreshing.There is a range of fillings which can be used like tofu, carrot or peppers but I decided to keep it simple. The good thing about making your own sushi is that you can decide on your own fillings and the have the option of variation. This I find difficult when I try to buy sushi since there is rarely any vegetarian options but then again maybe I should go to a proper sushi restaurant instead of store bought versions!


  • 1 Nori sheet
  • 1/4 Cucumber, peeled, deseeded and chopped
  • 50g Sushi Rice
  • 20g Toasted Sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp Rice Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Caster sugar


  1. First make the sushi rice.
  2. Rinse the rice 3-4 times and place in simmering water for approx 20 mins until soft and sticky.
  3. Then make the sushi rice seasoning, mix the vinegar and sugar together and add to the rice.
  4. Place clingfilm on a bamboo sheet and lay out the Nori sheet on top.
  5. Spread out a thin layer of sushi rice on top about 3/4 the length of the Nori sheet.
  6. Place the chopped cucumber down the centre in a straight line.
  7. Gently roll the clingfilm tucking in the Nori sheet as it rolls.
  8. Dampen the edge of the Nori sheet to seal the roll.
  9. Wrap the clingfilm around and twist the ends.
  10. Leave in fridge to cool down.
  11. Cut into slices using a wet knife.
