As the title of this post suggests, I've only made our own sushi at home once before. Here's the second attmpt. I still need to rock the patience a bit, and I am dying to finish up the brown sushi rice I bought because I'm convinced it's the culprit for my less than stellar rice in the rolls, but it tastes good!
This is just a quick veggie roll with cuke, carrot, and avocado, some freshly made wasabi, and a side of Sizzling Tofu.
Sizzling Tofu is really just extra firm tofu pressed well, cubed, and then sauteed in a bit of peanut oil til lightly browned. A teryaki type sauce made from soy sauce, mirin, and sugar is sprinkled on to further brown, the heat is upped, nutritional yeast is generously added, and the rest of the sauce is added and sauteed to coat, sizzling all the while, hence the name! ;)
Here's a shot that shows off the tofu a bit more, but I reeeally need a little tripod. I hate the flash pics and I'm just not steady enough to get good ones without it.
