  • 4-6 sheets toasted Nori seaweed sheets

    Cooking Time: Over one hour
    Rinse rice, place in pot with water and salt. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook for 50 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to steam-cook another 10 minutes. Turn out into a large bowl and allow to cool. Drizzle rice with Mirin and cut into still-warm rice with a wooden spoon. Meanwhile cut vegetables and set aside. Assembly: Have ready a small bowl of water to be used for moistening your hands and the Nori. Lay Nori sheet on bamboo sushi mat or towel, shiny side down. Moisten hands, then take a handful of rice and place it on Nori sheet. Press with fingers to spread rice over Nori, just one or two kernels thick, to edges on three sides and to within one inch of the far edge. Place the fillings on the edge and roll.
