Remember, white rice has a lot of its nutritional profile stripped away, so whenever possible, I try to substitute white rice with any wholegrain. If you would prefer to use a gluten-free grain for this recipe, then quinoa is a great alternative, too.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
200g bulghur wheat
400ml water
4 nori sheets
2 baby gem lettuces
1 small cucumber, sliced into 5cm-long matchsticks
4 radishes, thinly sliced
1 carrot, grated
1 large avocado, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced
toasted sesame seeds, for sprinkling
sea salt, to taste

For the creamy wasabi dipping sauce

Quantity Ingredient
1/2 teaspoon wasabi powder
1 1/2 tablespoons brown rice vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons tamari
1 1/2 tablespoons tahini
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
sushi mat

Method

  1. Put the bulghur wheat in a saucepan and add the 400ml water. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for 15–20 minutes until all the water has been absorbed and the bulghur is tender. Transfer to a bowl and leave to cool.
  2. Place a nori sheet, matt side up, on a sushi mat. Using wet hands, spread a quarter of the bulghur wheat over the nori sheet in a thin, even layer, but make sure to leave a 5cm border at the top.
  3. Arrange a quarter of the vegetables lengthways, starting with the baby gem lettuce, across the centre of the bulghur wheat and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Pick up the edge of the mat closest to you and start to roll it away from you while holding onto the filling. Pull the mat gently while rolling, in order to get a firm roll. Keep rolling until you have a nice neat, tight roll. Use a wet and very sharp knife to neatly cut the nori roll into pieces, then arrange on a platter. Repeat with the remaining nori sheets and vegetables.
  4. Whisk all the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl and serve with the sushi for dipping.

Note

  • By eating 2 sheets of nori seaweed, you get as much iron as you would from drinking 1 glass of milk or eating 1 egg.
