Kids and grown ups alike love sushi these days. It's simple to eat and great as a meal or snack on the go.

Once you master the technique, you can play around with the ingredients. Just about anything can work in sushi!

Getting started
2

First prepare the cauli-rice.

3

Mix the vinegar with stevia drops (if used) and add them to the bowl with cooked cauli-rice.

4

Spoon in the mayonnaise (or cream cheese) and process well. Cream cheese is the secret ingredient that makes the "rice" sticky!

5

Place the nori sheet on a sushi mat and gently spread the cauli-rice mixture on top. Leave a bit of space with no cauli-rice at the edges. Be careful not to break the nori sheet.

6

Top with sliced smoked salmon, peeled and sliced avocado and cucumber.

7

Carefully wrap the sushi roll, wet the edges and press towards the roll to close. Set aside for 15-30 minutes.

8

Using a sharp knife, slice into 2 cm / 1 inch slices.

Enjoy with the sides of your choice or on their own.

You can get wasabi powder, add liquid and make you own paste. Keep in mind that natural wasabi with no additives is not as vibrant green as the commonly available one.

Also, natural pickled ginger is white. If you find a pink product, it uses food dyes and may contain artificial sweeteners.
