Sushi Bowls

This has become the new Sunday night dinner at my house.  It's basically lazy person's sushi, and it's also a good way to use up broken nori sheets.  No recipe, really, just a technique:

  1. Cook rice.
  2. Prepare the veggies—I like paper-thin cucumber and carrot slices, lightly cooked bean sprouts, edamame, and cubes of avocado.  I usually let the cucumber slices marinate in rice vinegar and sesame oil while the rice is cooking. 
  3. Make a sauce of about 2.5 parts rice vinegar to 1 part liquid aminos (or soy sauce), a dash of agave or sugar, a dash of sesame oil, and plenty of fresh grated ginger.
  4. Crumble a few sheets of nori or cut it into strips. 
  5. Mix the cooked rice with the sauce.  
  6. It's prettier if you top bowls of rice with mounds of veggies, but you could also just mix it all together.
  7. Add the nori at the last minute, because it gets pretty sticky once it comes in contact with the moisture in the rice.
