Sushi for tea!
Look at what we made today!
I absolutely love making sushi - it's yummy and healthy - and fun to make.
I found that getting all my ingredients ready first and all lined up behind the chopping board was best. Don't put too much filling in (you'll have to experiment to see what's right, any mistakes can be eaten anyway!) and leave 2cm free at the end of the seaweed to 'glue' down with water when you reach it. We used tuna mixed with mayonnaise for these little beauties along with cucumber. It's a great project to get the kids involved with, and the best thing is they can eat it straightaway.
Initially we used the sushi making kits you can buy at the supermarket for about $10 and now we have a surplus of bamboo mats; you can also buy them for less than $2 at the supermarket. It's such good fun and easy to do - give it a go this weekend. It would be brilliant for school lunches.
