-3 cups of Japanese rice
-3 cups of water
-1/3 of rice vinegar
-3 tbsp of sugar
-4 eggs to make "tamagoyaki"
-1 tsp of soy sauce
-1 tbsp of mirin
-1 tsp oil

-1 English cucumber
-1 avocado
-Smoked salmon
-Soy Sauce
-Pickled ginger

1.In a rice cooker throw in the water and the rice, set the time and begin cooking.
2.In the meanwhile, prepare the vinegar mix by mixing the vinegar and sugar in a saucepan over low heat until the rice dissolves.
3.Once the rice is ready, add the vinegar mix to the rice.
4.Wait for the rice to cool down a bit before using it for the sushi.
5.While the rice is cooling, make the tamagoyaki. Mix the eggs, soy sauce and mirin in a bowl. Heat the pan and add the oil. Pour a thin layer of the egg mixture on to the pan, once it has started to set, roll it together and pour some more mixture. Add it slowly until is has formed a log.
6.Thinly slice the cucumber in julienne and cut the avocado into nice thin pieces.
7.Cover your bamboo mat with a plastic wrap so that the ingredients do not get stuck in it.
8.Place a thin layer of rice over a sheet of nori and add whatever ingredient you would like to eat. Do not add too much as you will have a hard time rolling it.
9.With a bit of water, seal the nori sheet together.
10.Once the sushi is tightly rolled, cut into nice bite-sized pieces!
11.Enjoy! Now, wasn't that simple!!

Sushi is really fun to make, and even more fun to eat! It's so simple that you can also make it into a fun activity with your kids. It's also fun to make with some friends and a nice bottle of crisp white wine. You might want to hurry to make them before the wine bottle is finished because the rolls might get harder to make! ;)
