It has been a while

Here we are in May and it has been a while since I posted. The reason for this is that I have been on "The Plan" off and on for the last few months and have lost 8 to 10 pounds. Since none of the recipes are my own to share, I have not had much fodder for blogs! The Plan is a program by Lyn-Genet Recitas. You can check it for yourself and see if it works for you.

Since I last posted I have learned to make Maki Sushi at home and I have been experimenting with different kinds of rolls. I do not eat the raw fish kind. It just does not appeal to me.

Here are some photos of my attempts:

and then I keep forgetting to flip the rolls over and they turn out like this:

Here are some tips when making Maki Sushi Rolls:

  • Make the rice in a rice cooker and use short grain rice, either brown or white
  • Use the back of a spoon dipped in hot water to spread the rice on the Nori seaweed paper
  • cover the sushi mat in clingwrap to keep it clean, remove clingwrap after each use.
  • If you don't have cucumber, use zucchini.
  • when cutting the rolls, dip knife in hot water.
  • Use Tamari instead of Soy sauce, I was told it is gluten free, but check the label!
Go wild and experiment with flavours! Use what you have! 

I only use the faux crab sticks in my rolls, but if you choose to use fish, make sure it is good quality, sushi grade fish.

The last batch I made were filled with avocado, mango and zucchini with fresh basil leaves. They were De- Li-Cious!
