Making Vegetarian Sushi with Kelly Loves Sushi
The last thing you want to do when there's a heatwave in the UK is to put the oven on, so this lovely kit from Kelly Loves Sushi was the perfect kitchen friend for some al fresco dining this weekend!

I've had a love affair with sushi for a long time, despite me not eating fish. There's so much more to sushi than raw fish so don't let that put you off! Nowadays there's a huge range of vegetarian and vegan sushi available, and of course, it's very easy to make yourself at home. You just need the right tools and ingredients.

If you fancy having a go yourself, the Kelly Loves Sushi at Home Kits is a great place to start. Designed by the world-renowned Asian businesswoman Kelly Choi, these kits are super easy for beginners to help them explore the exciting world of sushi in the comfort of their own homes.

I was very kindly sent the Kelly Loves Sushi Complete Sushi Kit to try out and this contains all of the essential ingredients that you need to make a wide range of sushi rolls and maki. 

Inside this kit, you'll find Sushi Rice (500g), a pack of Nori Sheets (7 sheets), Sushi Vinegar (150ml), Spicy Mayo (285g), Sushi Ginger (150g), Crispy Fried Onions (150g), and a very handy Bamboo Sushi Rolling Mat. Just add your fresh ingredients and you're good to go!

The instructions for how to make your own sushi/maki rolls are illustrated simply on the packaging, though I did find it helpful to have a look at a couple of YouTube videos for some extra guidance.

How To Make Sushi/Maki

Cook the Sushi Rice in a steamer or large saucepan - you know it's done when all the water is absorbed and it feels quite sticky. Mix in a little of the Sushi Vinegar to bring it to life and allow to cool.

Cut the Nori Sheets into two and place one on the Bamboo Rolling Mat. Add 80g of the cooled Sushi Rice and your fresh ingredients (cucumber, avocado, carrots etc for vegetarian/vegan sushi). Carefully roll it using the mat and seal the roll with a little water. Cut into bite-sized pieces and either consume alone or dip into the Spicy Mayo or Sushi Ginger, or sprinkle over some of Crispy Fried Onions.

I found it very easy to make my own sushi with this kit and the Bamboo Rolling Mat is the key to getting your rolls absolutely perfect!
