Did you know that making sushi rolls is super easy? It looks daunting I know, but if you deconstruct it, like most things, it’s not as daunting as you think. You can use any filling you like, and just put it all together like so. Here, I used avocado and cucumber to make a super easy sushi roll for my daughter. It’s also Friday, so it was the only thing I had left in my fridge. Time to grocery shop, I know. In any case, just take a look at how simple this is below.
If you have a rice cooker at home, then it’s even easier. All you need to do is make some white/brown or mixed rice and you’re halfway there. Make sure to always use sushi rice which is stickier and in my opinion tastier, too.

Here are the 2 items you will need:
If you don’t have a rice cooker, you can also cook rice in a pot on the stove.
I tend to mix up what I put in my rolls. Usually, I make all vegetarian, like avocados, cucumber, carrots and spinach. But I also like to put in baked salmon or any kind of fish, crab meat, and tuna too. The options are pretty endless. Here’s a link to another easy sushi roll I made with detailed instructions on it also.
In short, all I’m saying, is give it a try! I’m telling you, it’s not as hard as you think. And it’s a fun way to get your kids in the kitchen too! For the heart shaped avocados, I used these vegetable cutters and I love them. I especially like making these for my little one’s lunch.
