- 1 cup of sushi rice 

- Nori / Seaweed sheets - 1 full sheet sliced into small strips 

- 1/2 tsp sea salt

- 1 tbsp of unseasoned rice vinegar

- 2 tsp white sugar 

- 2 cups of Crunchy Veggies, such as cucumber (diced)

- Advocado (optional)

- Your favorite filling - such as crabmeat, tuna, or salmon!

- Sesame seeds (optional)

- Soy sauce or tamari 

- Glass jars 




  1. Pour the rice into a fine mesh strainer and rinse under cold running water for at least 60 seconds. Drain and transfer to a saucepan with a tight-fitting lid.
  2. Add the water and salt. Bring to a boil, stir, cover and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook for 15 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat and let stand for 10 minutes, covered.
  3. While the rice cooks, stir together the rice vinegar and sugar. Continue stirring until most of the sugar has dissolved, 1-2 minutes.
  4. Transfer the cooked rice to a bowl and gently fold in the vinegar mixture until well combined. Allow the rice to cool before assembling the jars.
  5. Combine the cucumber and avocado in a bowl.
  6. To assemble the jars, add ¼ cup of cooked and cooled rice to each of the four jars. Top with a large spoonful of the cucumber and avocado mix, 2 Tbsp. of your filling, some of the nori strips and a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Add a second layer of these ingredients, starting again with the cooked rice. 
  7. Lid each jar and refrigerate for up to 3 days. To serve, empty the contents of a jar onto a plate and drizzle with soy sauce or tamari. Finish with extra sesame seeds, if desired.
