California Style Rolls

Prep:15 minutes plus chilling

Cook:10 minutes


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.
