Japanese Cuisine - Maki SushiVegetarian Sushi recipe:

This recipe uses cooked sweet potatoes, which have a sweet, creamy quality, and raw cucumbers, which give a contracting crispness to the rolls. Use white or black sesame seeds for the finishing touch.

Ingredients:

½ cup rice vinegar

2 tablespoons sesame oil

4 nori seaweed sheets

2 cups cooked short-grain brown rice

1 cup cucumber strips

1 cup cooked sweet potatoes

2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl, combine the rice vinegar with the sesame oil. Add the cucumber strips, stirring gently, and allow to marinate for a couple of hours. Remove from the marinade and drain.

With a blender, whip the cooked sweet potatoes until they are smooth and creamy.

Lay a nori seaweed sheet on a flat surface. Place half a cup of rice on the plastic wrap and press to the size of a sheet of nori. Place a sheet of non on top of rice, then spread ¼ cup of blended sweet potatoes on nori and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Place ¼ cup cucumber strips in the middle.

Roll up from the outside and dampen the edge to seal (the rice will be on the outside of the roll).

Allow to chill before slicing with a sharp damp knife into half-inch thick slices. Serve cold.

Alternatively you can use tofu, avocado and other vegetables for filling.
