Ham and Avocado Sushi Rolls
INGREDIENTS (makes 12 sushi pieces)
200g sushi rice
Salt and pepper
1 avocado, sliced lengthways
Juice of ½ lemon
½ cucumber, sliced lengthways
2 sheets nori (Japenese seaweed)
2 tbsp sushi seasoning
Rinse the sushi rice under cold running water, stir, drain and repeat. Pour 300ml of water in a pan, add the rice and bring to a simmer with a lid on. Simmer for about 8 minutes, then remove from the heat. Leave the lid on and allow the rice to absorb any moisture for a further 20-25 mins.
Meanwhile, to prepare the filling, chop the ham, slice the avocado - add a squeeze of lemon to prevent discolouration - and slice the cucumber into long batons.
When the rice has cooled down, prepare a sheet of nori on a sushi roller or parchment paper. Layer half of the rice, then add the filling in the centre. Roll the nori and rice around the filling and aim to link the nori to form a sushi roll. Using a sharp knife, slice into 5-6 pieces and place within the lunchbox. Drizzle with sushi seasoning and cover with a lid.
Store in the fridge until needed.
