Sweet Potato Avocado Sushi Roll
Sushi Rice 1 cup
Water 1 1/2 cup
Rice Vinegar 1 tbsp
White Sugar 1 tbsp
Sea Salt 1 tsp
Sweet Potato - 1/2" sticks 1 each
Avocado - 1/2" slices 1 each
Cucumber - 1/2" sticks 1 each
Nori 1 sheet
Sriracha Mayo 1 tbsp
Sesame Seeds 1 tbsp


1. Cook the sushi rice according to package instructions. While sushi rice is cooking, preheat oven to 400°F.
2. Cute and bake sweet potatoes in the oven for 15 minutes, set aside. Cut avocado and cucumber, set aside. 
3. To assemble the sushi, add a nori sheet to a sushi rolling mat. Add a layer of rice to the bottom 2/3 of the nori, leaving about 2 inches of space at the top. Press the rice down firmly to ensure it sticks (It helps if your fingers are a bit wet). Flip the sheet of nori with rice so that the rice is on the bottom.

  • 4. Add all your fillings to the bottom half of the rice.

5. To roll, use the bamboo mat to gently fold the roll up and out. Keep rolling until you get to the last inch of the nori. 

6. Once the rolling is complete, cut your roll into 1 inch thick slices. Drizzle top with sriracha mayo (you can buy premade OR mix 3 tbsp mayo with 1 tbsp sriracha) and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
