CUCUMBER HUMMUS SUSHI ROLLS

These easy sushi roll-ups are packed with a delicious hummus mixture that guarantees you won’t be able to stop at just one.

INGREDIENTS

2 to 3 cucumbers

1 cup hummus readymade

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

1/2 cup red bell pepper, finely diced

20 pitted olives, roughly chopped

2 tablespoons oregano, roughly chopped

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

PREPARATION

Using a vegetable peeler, thinly slice the cucumber lengthways into slices about 1/16 inch (2 millimetres) thick. Place the slices on a paper towel while the filling is prepared.

In a medium bowl, combine the hummus, feta, red pepper, olives, oregano, and black pepper. Mix until just combined. Place 1 tablespoon of the filling on one end of each cucumber slice and roll away from you. Use a toothpick to secure each roll. Chill until ready to serve.

BREAD SUSHI ROLLS

These dainty sandwich sushi bites are not only party crowd pleasers but also perfect nutritious snack items for adults and kids.

INGREDIENTS

1 small tin of tuna in springwater

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

2 tablespoons chia seeds

4 slices of bread

2 leaves of lettuce

Carrot ribbons

Red and yellow bell pepper juliennes

PREPARATION

Mix the tuna and mayonnaise. Pour the chia seeds onto the chopping board. Cut the crusts from the bread and roll out thinly on top of the chia seeds with a rolling pin. Top with lettuce, carrots, then the tuna mix. Add the bell peppers then roll up. Secure with toothpicks. Serve with ketchup or any dipping sauce of your choice.

FRUITSHI

If you are looking for a unique snack that everyone will love, fruitshi is for you. The best part is, you don’t even have to like sushi.

INGREDIENTS

11/2 cups sushi rice

2 cups water

3 tablespoons sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup (8 oz) coconut milk

11/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

Fruits:

Mango, pineapple, kiwi, strawberry, raspberries, cut them in to sticks

PREPARATION

In a heavy bottomed saucepan combine the rice, 2 cups water, 2 tablespoons sugar, and salt. Bring to a simmer, then turn the heat down low and cook gently for 12-15 minutes. Once the water is absorbed into the rice and it is soft turn off the heat. Add coconut milk and vanilla extract and stir. Spread evenly on a lined tray to cool down fast and stop it from continuing to cook.

For the fruit:

Cut the fruits into sticks. You want the fruit to be long so it is easy to roll.

To make a sushi roll:

Lay down a rectangle of cling film (plastic wrap). Spread out a rectangle of rice. While spreading out the rice it helps to have a little bowl of water to dip your hands in and help the sticky rice spread. Lay your sliced fruit on the rice around the way up the rice. Start to roll, use the cling wrap to control the roll and keep it tight. Take your time. Once your sushi is made roll it. Change it up and lay down mango on the cling wrap, then lay down rice directly on it. Fill with fruit and roll up. Serve with a dipping sauce of your choice.
