  • 200g (7oz) sushi rice
  • 250ml (1 cup) water
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 sheets of nori (seaweed)
  • 200g (7oz) cooked turkey breast, thinly sliced
  • 1 ripe avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1 cucumber, julienned
  • 1 medium carrot, julienned
  • Soy sauce, for serving
  • Pickled ginger, for serving
  • Wasabi, for serving

Method of Preparation

  1. Rinse the sushi rice under cold water until the water runs clear.
  2. Combine the rice and water in a rice cooker or a pot. Cook according to the rice cooker's instructions or bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 18-20 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the rice vinegar, sugar, and salt until dissolved. Gently fold this mixture into the cooked rice. Let the rice cool to room temperature.
  4. Place a sheet of nori on a bamboo sushi mat, shiny side down.
  5. Wet your hands to prevent the rice from sticking, then spread a thin layer of sushi rice evenly over the nori, leaving a 1-inch border at the top.
  6. Arrange a line of turkey slices, avocado, cucumber, and carrot across the middle of the rice.
  7. Using the bamboo mat, carefully roll the nori and rice over the filling, pressing gently to form a tight roll. Seal the edge with a little water.
  8. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
  9. Using a sharp, wet knife, slice each roll into 6-8 pieces.
  10. Serve with soy sauce, pickled ginger, and wasabi on the side.

Tips for Culinary Success

  • Use a sharp knife dipped in water to prevent sticking when slicing the rolls.
  • Ensure the sushi rice is at room temperature before assembling the rolls for the best texture.
  • Customize the filling by adding ingredients like cream cheese, bell peppers, or lettuce for added crunch and flavor.
