  1. Combine the water and rice in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, or until rice is tender and water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and stir in the vinegar and a pinch of salt. Set aside to cool.
  2. Cover a bamboo sushi mat with plastic wrap to keep the rice from sticking. Place a sheet of seaweed over the plastic. Use your hands to spread the rice evenly onto the sheet, leaving about 1/2 inch of seaweed empty at the bottom. Arrange strips of cucumber and avocado across the center of the rice. Lift the mat and roll over the vegetables once and press down. Unroll, then roll again towards the exposed end of the seaweed sheet to make a long roll. You may moisten with a little water to help seal. Set aside and continue with remaining nori sheets, rice and fillings.
  3. Use a sharp wet knife to slice the rolls into 5 or 6 slices. Serve cut side up with your favorite sushi condiments.

Why everybody using glutenous rice for sushi? They meant for different purpose, suchi as making Mirin or mochi (Japanese rice cake). They contain large amount of starch so it makes sushi rice to...

My roommate and I used this recipe as a base (and motivational factor in making sushi at all) for our own sushi. Although we didn't have cucumber and avocado sushi, I am giving this recipe a 5 ...

I agree with sushiichii; one uses a good quality short grain rice--a Cal rose variety is often preferred (Nishiki brand in my neck of the woods) to make sushi, not glutinous rice which is for de...

What fun and how tasty. We made this recipe with a party of 12 year olds. I put out bowls of chopped veggies, panko bread crumbs, and imitation crab for the filling and toasted black and white...

Yum! I was really in the mood for some rolls today and when considering the drive to Bennihana, I suddenly remembered I had some nori in my pantry. I actually used the recipe for "Perfect Sush...

A great recipe! I added crab sticks to a few, and also smoked salmon. The smoked salmon was a delicious addition! Definitely need some dipping sauce such as soy sauce or wasabi to add flavor i...

YUM!!! I made this for my friends and it was a big hit! Served w/ Soy and Teriaki Sauces. Recipe is so easy and quick, even my 10 yr old sister made it by herself.

The only reason I'm only giving it four stars is because this is labor intensive. But the taste was EXCELLENT! It was also just a fun experience to spend the time in the kitchen with a friend ...

This is a good recipe for a basic sushi. Including avocado and cucumber as a starting point, we also added a thin slice of omlette, crab meat, and roasted bell peppers. In another roll, we put t...
