We have shared our thoughts on seaweed before, but I wanted to come back to it. Recently I have been craving sushi type food. I have no idea what suddenly sparked my interest in them, because I have honestly never had sushi before I stopped eating fish, and never really liked nori sheets. But ever since we made no-nori sushi, and I started eating other types of seaweed (kombu, dulse etc), I felt like I wanted to try it again.
Because I am a lazy cook, and much prefer my lunch in a bowl, I wanted to share this lazy sushi bowl recipe. It has all the flavours, but none of the work. Seriously! The only hard part is cooking the rice, which really isn’t that much work. I used black wild rice, because it tastes amazing! But feel free to use any other type, if you like!
The results are a delicious and easy sushi flavoured bowl. Although after taking a few bites the nori flavour still wasn’t my cup of tea. So if you love the taste, maybe add a little more nori. For meal prepping, add the dressing when ready to eat, so the rice doesn’t go bad.
Lazy Sushi Bowl
⅓ cup uncooked black rice
1 nori sheet
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tsp rice vinegar
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp maple syrup
Add the rice to a pan with about 2 cups boiling water. Cover and let simmer for 30 minutes, take from the heat and keep it covered for another 10 minutes. If necessary drain the excess water and let the rice cool down.
Meanwhile chop all the veggies and the nori sheet.
Mix the rice vinegar, soy sauce and maple syrup into a dressing.
Add everything together, mix and enjoy.
Optional: add some wasabi to the dressing to make it more spicy
