Cooking Sushi with Kids

Making sushi was fun, tasty, entertaining and difficult. We are definitely going to have to try this again!

After watching a Youtube video about how to make bubble game, a video about how to make sushi popped up. My son loves sushi so he clicked on it. Then he decided to look for recipes. He found this one and asked to make sushi this week. I was thrilled because it's actually something I have wanted to do for a long time but just haven't gotten to.

First the kids cooked sticky rice.

While the rice was cooking they cut avocados, cucumbers and yellow peppers to stuff into the rolls.

Rice vinegar, sugar and salt were mixed together to add to the rice. (Next time we will use less sugar as we thought it tasted a little too sweet.)

Then the real fun began with trying to roll them up.


Even though some turned out better than others they all tasted good. I'm sure we will get better on round two.

  2. We should do this just to get the kids over the 'hump' of thinking they hate sushi when they have never had it ;-)
