This Week I'm eating... SUSHI

Sushi Sushi, that now ubiquitous franchise selling dependable, decent Nori rolls is a purely Melbournian industry.  Not only that, but the phenomenon of the $2 Nori take-away roll is probably uniquely Australian too.  Who would have thought that my first food-craving from home would in fact be Japanese food?!  But this weekend I had a craving for Sushi.  (Incidently Noodle-Box, which I always thought come direct from the US via Seinfeld, doesn't exist in Boston either!)  
Anyway, my craving would not settle and so armed with a basic set of Nori ingredients I decided to cook my own.
The avacado hails from Florida, but all the other ingredients are local.  I still had some radishes left-over from last week (now looking a little tired), plus some beans and spring onions which I threw into the rice-cooker at the end to give them 'Oomph'.
I was perhaps a little greedy on the rice front and managed to split all the rolls that I made.
Even though they weren't quite as good as Sushi Sushi, and probably were slightly more expensive to make - they were still delicious and I even had some leftover for tomorrow's lunchbox!

That's pretty impressive sushi! I hope Tim leaves a comment analysing technique... You have a rice cooker?! I'm jealous! Did you acquire it at the Harvard yard sales?

The rice cooker is one of the best inventions in the world. It was actually one of the first things that I bought for my kitchen - before a pot, and I still haven't got around to getting a toaster. I use it at least 3 times a week, sometimes more. Often I'm cooking rice, but I also use it as my steamer. Fish, vegetables, chicken - they all get steamed in the top of the rice cooker with a "steamer" attachment.
