Sushi JAR

Women's Health Australia - - FOOD HUB -

SERVES: 2 This is the per­fect lunch if you love sushi but don’t want the has­sle of mak­ing it or the ex­pense of buy­ing it ready-made. I usu­ally cook up a big batch of rice and whip up a few dif­fer­ent dress­ings at the week­end. This means that lunches like this only take a mat­ter of min­utes to cre­ate. A ma­jor win for busy women! Strug­gling to find sea­weed (nori) in the su­per­mar­ket? Then look in the Asian aisle – you’ll usu­ally find it in handy dried sheets.

◆ 1 tbs sesame oil

◆ 80g shelled edamame beans

(fresh or frozen)

◆ 250g cooked rice (about 100g dried weight or you can use 1 pack of mi­crowave rice here)

◆ 2 tbs soy sauce or soy and ginger dress­ing (see rice noo­dle salad recipe on op­po­site page)

◆ 1 sea­weed sheet (nori), cut into thin strips (op­tional)

◆ 4 spring onions, chopped

◆ 1 car­rot, grated

◆ 1 av­o­cado, diced

◆ ½ cu­cum­ber, cut into thin match­sticks ◆ 100g smoked salmon, tinned crab meat or tinned tuna

◆ Juice of ½ lime

◆ Wasabi paste, to taste (op­tional)

1. Heat sesame oil in a small fry­pan or wok and add edamame beans. Stir-fry for 3–4 mins and leave to cool slightly.

2. Place the rice in a bowl and pour over the soy sauce or dress­ing, then mix well un­til the rice is well coated.

3. Layer all the in­gre­di­ents, ex­cept the lime juice and wasabi paste, in any or­der you like in a jar or an air­tight con­tainer. Squeeze over the lime juice and top with a lit­tle wasabi paste, if us­ing. Leave in the fridge overnight and grab in the morn­ing.
