This sushi recipe is super easy, fun to make and endlessly flexible.
  • 200g sushi rice
  • 1 tbsp sushi vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1-2 tsp wasabi paste, plus extra to serve
  • 4 sheets nori
  • ½ avocado, stone and skin removed, julienned
  • ¼ cucumber, peeled, julienned
  • ½ red pepper, seeds removed, julienned
  • soy sauce, to serve
  1. Cover the sushi rice in 400ml of cold water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 10 minutes, or until tender. Pour over the vinegar, sprinkle over the sugar and stir, then set aside to cool. Once cool, chill in the fridge for at least one hour.
  2. When the rice is chilled, smear a little wasabi horizontally along each piece of nori, about one-quarter of the way up the sheets.
  3. Use your hands to mould the cooked rice into a sausage at the same level as the wasabi paste.
  4. Arrange a line each of avocado, cucumber and pepper just above the rice.
  5. Roll each nori sheet up and cut into pieces (use a sharp knife).
  6. Serve with soy sauce and wasabi.
