Sushi Rice
Get the family involved. That way nobody can complain that they don’t like the food.

Use this for all sushi rice – rolls, nigiri, but also great on its own or as part of a salad. Add black sesame seeds for a bit of fanciness.
These quantities are enough for 3 California rolls.

This uses the absorption method for cooking rice – use it for normal rice by following the instructions up to step 5.
