It has been the rainiest Spring I can remember and now suddenly the wind is gusting and it’s dry and sunny.  The flowers must have been waiting for the sun because they seem to be in full bloom everywhere.  And, the sweet mangos are ripening…

This year my birthday fell on Mother’s Day again and so I was blessed to be able to have the day to go to yoga and then treat myself to a facial.  I didn’t want any gifts except for a clean house and it was so nice to come home to.  Oh and one more thing…I wanted to go have sushi for dinner.

I know…some people cringe at the mention of sushi because they think it is raw fish.  Well, sometimes it can contain fish, but sushi is just a Japanese sandwich–a nori wrap and a bit of rice (the bread) and any kind of filling that you like.  When I’m home alone and want to eat something nourishing,  I sometimes treat myself to very simple homemade sushi with two ingredients–brown rice and a slice of avocado.  I love to dip it in a mixture of soy sauce (gluten free) and wasabi (horseradish paste), but if you don’t like HOT things, you can just dip it in soy sauce.   Brown rice and a simple slice of cucumber is also a good combination.  Also essential?  A cup of good green tea.

Homemade sushi is also a quick and easy family meal.  I just cut up strips of a mixture of protein and vegetable fillings.  If you’re going to use meat, a well seasoned teriyaki goes well with the rice.  Other protein ideas: scrambled egg strips, tofu, crab mixed with mayo, or well drained canned tuna seasoned with soy sauce.  You can use any veggies you like.  Although not traditional, I always try to use a vegetable with bright color like red peppers or carrots.  Everyone chooses whatever fillings they like and rolls their own sushi.  It’s important that the sushi is eaten right after it is rolled so that the nori wrapper stays crisp!

If you go to a Japanese restaurant, you will probably be served sushi that has been seasoned with rice vinegar and sugar.  When I’m making homemade sushi at home however, I just leave the rice plain.  It has to be hot rice though…

Making homemade sushi is a fun and nourishing meal–for my family or myself.
