Sweet Sushi

High time for a new sushi recipe, eh? Today’s recipe is inspired by my grandma. Grandma always cooked rice pudding just for me and her. The rest of the family didn’t like this dish at all. When grandma cooked rice pudding, she took the biggest pot she could find in the kitchen and cooked an amount that would have fed a whole football team for the winter. The kid should never leave the dinner table hungry, so she had to be sure there was surely enough to eat. Oh what great times we had. Eating sweet rice pudding with cinnamon and sugar for days and days.

As I love sushi so much I simply had to try that sweet sushi variation that we all knew from those annoying Tasty-Style-Videos on Facebook. Sorry not sorry, sweet fruit sushi also happened in the walls of Avocado mansion. Sweet sushi is a great alternative to the hearty versions and looks so pretty! Pudding rice is perfect for Sushi as it is super sticky, but you can go for any short grained rice you like if you can’t find the special ‘pudding rice’. Here in Germany it is quite common, but you might also want to try risotto rice. For this sweet sushi I cooked the rice with coconut milk and added masses and masses of cinnamon almost at every recipe step. The apple gets fried quickly and effectively and we’re adding honey to caramellize it. Merely the rolling will become a little of a challenge but I’m fairly certain that you will manage.

TOTAL
 
Portionen / Serves: ~ 3 rolls
Zutaten / Ingredients
for the Sushi Rice
  • 150 g pudding rice or any other short grain rice (try risotto rice for example)
  • 200 g coconut milk
  • 250 ml water
  • 1 tbsp agave syrup
  • ½ tsp cinnamon

for the filling
  • 1 apple
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
optional
  • cinnamon to drizzle on the rolls
  • vanilla sauce for dipping
Zubereitung / Instructions
  1. Rinse the rice in clear water. Add it to a pot with coconut milk, water, agave syrup and cinnamon and bring it to a boil. Let it simmer for 20- 30 minutes until the rice is done and soft.
  2. Cut the apple into slices. Heat coconut oil in a pan and fry the apple until it gets a little softer.
  3. Add honey and cinnamon and let if caramallize for some minutes. Remove the pan from the stove and let the apples cool down.
Now let's roll
  1. Rolling sushi without a nori sheet for stabilization is a little tricky.
  2. Your best chance is to cover a sushi mat in either cling foil or aluminium foil. Spread the rice evenly on the sheet and press it onto it firmly. Place the apples in the middle and roll it up.
  3. Don't forget to press it firmly into a round form and then remove the sushi mat
Now there's different options for the cutting
  1. You can remove the foil and cut the sushi into even slices. Note that your knife has to be extra sharp and that you shall not press it through the roll, otherwise it'll fall apart.
  2. You can leave the foil around your sushi roll (aluminium foil works quite good in that case) and cut your sushi through the foil. It gives your roll more stability and is easy to remove afterwards.
  3. You can leave the foil around the sushi roll and let it cool down in the fridge until it becomes firmer and continue once it's cold.
However you decide, it'll need a bit of practice. Have fun and enjoy!
