Sushi is one of my biggest weaknesses – so when I saw this recipe for Fruit Sushi, I couldn’t wait to try it out and share this wondrous foodstuff with my toddler. It’s ridiculously easy and quick to make (especially if you cheat and use pre-cooked rice like I did) – and makes a fun idea for healthy puddings and snacks.
So here’s what you need…
Rice – roughly 1/3 cup per sushi roll
Bananas – one per sushi roll
Assortment of fruit – anything you like, we used strawberries, blueberries and papaya
1. Cook your rice
2. Mash your banana into the rice while it’s still slightly warm
3. Chop up your fruit
4. Place a sheet of clingfilm on a chopping board and arrange the rice in a rectangular shape, about the depth of a fingernail
5. Lay the fruit in a neat line along one edge of the rectangle
6. Take the edge of the cling film nearest to you and carefully roll the rice into a sausage shape – keep pulling slowly and this will happen naturally
7. Wrap the remainder of the clingfilm around the sausage, covering both ends too – and place in the freezer for 2-3 hours
8. Take the frozen sushi sausage out of the freezer and slice into individual sushi rolls
9. Allow to thaw for 10 minutes and serve while it is still cold enough to hold its shape
Let me know if you try it and what your kids think!
