Time, we all want more of it! Time passes so quickly; your once young children grow up and rapidly become adults and then have a family of their own. Where did the time go?


It seems only like yesterday that you were welcoming them into the world and now they are following their own hopes and dreams.


Finding the time for family; to stop, to enjoy and to share precious moments in our busy day to day lives is so important.


Bringing the family together over a mid-week meal or Sunday dinner is a great way to reconnect with what is important and the chance to get everyone involved in the cooking process can be loads of fun.


Here is a recipe for sushi; Get everyone involved – your children, their children and make memories to cherish.


What you’ll need:

1 1/2 cups sushi rice

2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

1 tablespoon caster sugar

4 nori sheets

2 tablespoons whole-egg mayonnaise

1 Lebanese cucumber, cut into matchsticks

1 medium avocado, thinly sliced

1 medium carrot, grated

Salt-reduced soy sauce, to serve




Rinse and drain rice a couple of times or until water runs clear. Place in a sieve over a bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes to drain.


Place rice and 1 1/2 cups cold water in a saucepan over medium heat. Cover. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, for 12 minutes or until water has absorbed. Remove from heat. Stand, covered, for 10 minutes.


Meanwhile, place vinegar and sugar in a microwave-safe jug. Microwave on high (100%) for 30 seconds. Stir to dissolve sugar. Transfer rice to a large ceramic dish. Using a spatula, stir to break up lumps. Slowly add vinegar mixture, lifting and turning rice, until rice has cooled.


Place 1 nori sheet, shiny-side down, on a sushi mat. Using damp fingers, spread 3/4 cup rice over nori, leaving a 2cm strip at 1 short end. Spread 2 teaspoons mayonnaise over centre of rice. Arrange one-quarter cucumber, avocado and carrot over mayonnaise. Using the sushi mat, roll up firmly to form a roll. Cut into 6 slices. Repeat with remaining nori sheets, rice, mayonnaise, cucumber, avocado and carrot to make 24 pieces. Serve with soy sauce.


You can put any type of seafood/chicken you’d like in the sushi. Get creative and mix and match. And if you have a big family to feed double this recipe. Easy peasy!
