Units Scale

For the rice:

  • 1 cup red rice
  • 1/8 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp agave syrup
  • 1/3 Tbsp sea salt

For the fillings:


  1. Start by preparing the rice. Rinse 1 cup of red rice and cook according to the instructions on the package.
  2. In the meantime place all ingredients for the seasoning into a pan and stir until resolved.
  3. Mix the seasoning into the warm rice, mix well and let cool down.
  4. In the meantime prepare the fillings by slicing them into thin pieces.
  5. Prepare the rolling matt (I put plastic wrap around it several times so the rice doesn’t stick to the wood) and a sheet of nori (half or 3/4 of the sheet is usually enough for simple maki rolls).
  6. When the rice has cooled down, put a very thin layer of the rice all over the nori sheet with your wet hands.
  7. Arrange the fillings (cream cheese first) in a line at the bottom 3/4 of the sheet and start rolling the sheet over the fillings until all veggies are covered. Compress the roll with your hands and continue until it’s all rolled up.
  8. Cut the roll into small sushi pieces and serve with soy sauce!
