Kawaii Banana Sushi Art Roll today :)
Happy to make this fun bento and sushi art roll recipe to share with you. Its 1st August today, a brand new month again. This will be a crazy month for me as I will be busy with several big projects, both for bento and for work.
I will do my best to continue to share my bento creations, blog postings with you, but do pardon me if I take occassional breaks here and there.
Some time back in 2013, I made a banana sushi art roll (kazarimaki sushi) and have since received several requests to share a tutorial to make the cute sushi.
I managed to make them this morning and also took the pictures of the steps for this recipe blog post. Continue reading~~
The one thing I loved about this recipe was that this sushi art roll was not too big, it was about the size of the usual futomaki. You also do not need a lot of rice to make the roll. ^^
The side dishes for the bento included sauteed thin pork slices and simmered vegetables and tofu that included mushrooms, french beans, wolfberries, lotus root and tofu squares.
I couldn't resist not taking a photo with the minion figurine, bananas always make me think of the cute minion characters.
Recipe for Kawaii Banana Sushi Art Roll
cooked Japanese rice (approx 150g~)
white soy sauce 1tsp
half a japanese cucumber (10cm long)
seaweed (3 sheets)
1. Mix 2 eggs, 20ml dashi stock, 10ml mirin, 1 tsp white soy sauce in a bowl. Then divide into 3 portions and cook 3 small tamagoyaki rolls.
2. Wrap each tamagoyaki roll in 0.5 sheet of seaweed. Trim off the excess ends.
3. Halve the japanese cucumber, the length should be about 10cm. Pat dry with kitchen paper napkins.4. Join 1 sheet and 0.5 sheet of seaweed sheets together. To do so, simply 'smear' some rice grains to make one end of the seaweed sheet sticky, then overlap the other seaweed piece slightly.
5. Spread a thin even layer of rice on the seaweed, leaving about 4-5cm gap on both ends. Then place the cucumber half with flat side down in the middle.
6. Arrange the 3 tamagoyaki rolls then add rice on the rightmost and leftmost corners of the sushi roll to keep them in position.
7. Continue to roll up the sushi. Do fill in the more rice as you need, wrap it up tightly.
8. Using a sharp kitchen knife, cut and divide the sushi roll into 4 pieces.
9. Pack the kawaii banana sushi art roll pieces into your bento ^^
