  • 12oz sushi grade tuna
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha

  • 12 pieces imitation crab, halved lengthwise
  • 56 thin slices carrot 
  • 34 slices avocado

  • 2 tablespoons kale microgreens
  • 46 thins strips cucumber
  • 46 thin strips red bell pepper
  • 46 thins slices purple cabbage

Dipping Options:


  1. Prep Ingredients: make sushi rice and cut up ingredients.
  2. Prep Nori Sheets: Take one piece of nori and place shiny side up. Take a small brush and dip in some water. Brush the bottom inch or so lightly with water. Immediately place the second piece of nori, shiny side up, overlapping with the first piece just where the water is so they stick together. You should then have one large, long piece of nori.
  3. Add Sushi Rice: Use a spoon to place the sushi rice so that one of the sheets of nori is fully covered with sushi rice – use the back of the spoon to press down and spread out the rice so there is just a thin, compressed layer. 
  4. Roll: Use the brush to brush a thin layer of water on the second piece of nori (that doesn’t have rice on it). Ensure the piece of nori with the rice on it is closest to you. Add your filling to the middle of the rice. Take the edge closest to you and fold over the filling, tucking under. Keep rolling until both nori sheets are rolled around the filling – the water should ensure the second piece sticks as it rolls. 
  5. Cut and Serve: Cut in half with a sharp knife. Use any dipping sauce you want – soy sauce, spicy mayo or wasabi mayo
