Ingredients:

  • 1 nori sheet
  • 1/4 cup cooked rice, cooled to room temperature
  • Desired fillings (vegetables, tuna, etc.)
  • 1 splash rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 small bowl warm water

Directions:

  1. Prepare. Mix rice, rice vinegar, sugar, and salt together to make the rice for the burrito.
  2. Slice. Slice all of you desired vegetables, meat, or other fillings and set aside.
  3. Spread. Put a nori sheet on a sushi roller. After dipping your fingers in lukewarm water, spread the prepared rice on the nori sheet.
  4. Fill. Place your desired fillings on the nori sheet near the bottom, leaving about 1 inch of exposed rice at the bottom.
  5. Roll. Starting from the end, roll the sheet upwards while applying slight pressure. Apply extra pressure when the two seaweed ends meet.
  6. Wrap. Wrap the burrito in parchment paper to hold contents together and make a twist at the end to prevent food fallout. The parchment paper wrap will make it easier to eat.
  7. Serve. Plate on a sleek plate and serve with soy sauce and wasabi.
