California Style Rolls


Try sprinkling 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds over the rice for extra flavour.


  • 150g sushi rice
  • 1 tbsp Japanese rice vinegar
  • ½ tsp LoSalt
  • 4 sushi nori sheets
  • 1 tbsp low fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced
  • 5cm piece cucumber, cut into thin strips


  1. Place the rice in a small saucepan with 250ml water, vinegar and LoSalt. Cover and bring to the boil, simmer on a low heat for 10 minutes or until just tender. Leave to cool with the lid on.
  2. When the rice is cold, using wet hands, divide the rice between the 4 nori and spread out thinly to the edges leaving a 2cm border at 1 end. Mix the mayonnaise with the ginger and spread over the rice.
  3. Place the avocado and cucumber in a line across the centre and roll up tightly, wet the nori border to seal. Cut the edges off the rolls and cut each into 6 slices to serve.
