Recipe's preparation

    Chicken Marinade
  1. Chop the garlic and ginger for 5 secs./speed 6 and add the soy, vinegar, sesame oil and honey. Mix for 5 secs./speed 4. Pour out over the chicken and leave in the fridge to marinade for at lest 10 minutes or up to 24 hours.  
  2. Cooking the Cauli Rice & Chicken
  3. Break the cauliflower into the mixing bowl and chop for 10 secs./speed 4.
     
  4. Do 3 second hurts at speed 4 until it is broken down to a rice consistency.  
  5. Transfer to the basket and add 500g water to the mixing bowl. Put the lid on and pop the Varoma on top with the marinaded chicken. 
  6. Cook for 15 mins./Varoma/Speed 4. 
  7. Use the spatular to hook the basket of Cauli Rice, tipping and shaking gently over the bowl or sink to drain well, and transfer to the Thermoserver.  
  8. Check the chicken, if it is not fully cooked then set it to steam for another 5-10 minutes. Once cooked transfer to a plate to cool.  
  9. Meanwhile add the vinegar, honey and salt to the cauli rice and using the spatular stir as you fan or blow on it to cool it. Taste and adjust the seasoning.  
  10. Assembly
  11. Have all your ingredients for filling ready and fill your MC with a little water and have ready to use to stick the nori.  
  12. On a sushi mat lay a nori sheet shiny side down. Spread 1/4 of the Cauli Rice over to three edges but leave a 2cm gap on the top edge. 
     
  13. Lay down your fillings in the middle, using 1/4 for each roll.  
  14. Roll up using the mat and when its almost rolled and you have just the top overlay then wet the roll along the edge where the nori will stick to itself to complete the roll.  
  15. Repeat with the rest of the fillings.  
  16. Slice in half for older kids or into 4-8 pieces for younger children. 
  17. Pack with an ice pack as part of a healthy lunch for a fun and very veggie lunch staple that is a nice change from sandwiches.

  • Great recipe - just be aware

    Great recipe - just be aware that children should not have more than 2 rolls of sushi per week due to the high iodine content in the nori seaweed.

    Thanks Wholefood Mumma. I do try to make them simple, but sometimes I do get carried away a little. 

     

    Its just so exciting when a recipe really works and I always want to give people too many options to customise it for themsleves!
