Have you ever made homemade sushi rolls at home? What about homemade sushi rolls using quinoa instead of rice?
Making sushi rolls with quinoa instead of rice may be for you if:
- You like experimenting in the kitchen
- You like the nutty flavor of quinoa
- You want more protein in your sushi roll (quinoa contains all 9 essential amino acids)
It’s a fun idea – and it’s really delicious! Give it a try yourself.
Take The Guesswork Out of Quinoa Preparation
If you’ve ever had trouble cooking quinoa just right (who hasn’t?!), you’re going to love Success® Tri-Color 100% Quinoa. The boil-in-bag process takes the guesswork out of making quinoa. The end result is perfectly cooked, light and fluffy quinoa – all in about 10 minutes. Success is in the Bag®!
Another thing I like about Success Quinoa is that it contains a blend of white, red, and black quinoa. It’s tasty – and it’s pretty too.
I added chicken bouillon and soy sauce to the quinoa cooking water. This added just a hint of savory flavor to the quinoa.
Quinoa Sushi: The Basics
If you’ve made sushi rolls with rice, then you can make sushi rolls with quinoa.
Note: Sushi rice is nice and sticky, making it easy to form into a roll. Quinoa is a bit looser, but can still be made into a roll.
Here are a few tips to get your quinoa sushi rolls just right:
- Use a sushi mat to roll as tight as possible
- Don’t overfill your rolls
- Once you have placed quinoa on the seaweed, press down on the quinoa with the back of a spoon
- Add maple syrup or honey to the quinoa (follow recipe directions, below)
If you’ve never made sushi rolls before, you can check out this post on making a basic sushi roll. It’s not hard – but it’s best to watch a video that explains the process.
Also, feel free to use different fillings in your sushi roll. Cucumbers, carrots, romaine lettuce, roasted sweet potato, tamago (Japanese sweet egg omelette), or fish – the sky is the limit!
