Deconstructed California Roll

   Deconstructed California Roll  

What if I told you that you could curb that sushi craving at home despite struggling with rolling your own? That would basically be a dream come true, right?

It was for me when I made this Deconstructed California Roll. As a matter of fact, it contains all the same ingredients that are in my favorite sushi roll just waiting to be devoured from an easily accessible bowl.  

So, how about a sushi bowl!

OK, so radish usually isn’t in a traditional California Roll, but I love the zip, crunch and color that it adds to this dish. At this time, radishes are readily available and in season here in the Golden State, so please, don’t leave it out!

Additionally, I used Windset Farms cocktail cucumbers (thank you Costco!) and cut them into bite-sized matchstick pieces.

But, one of the most exciting ingredients of this dish is the fresh California avocado….

Ingredients chopped: cucumber, green onions, radish, and avocado

Yum!

 

Short grain Japanese rice

The base and structure of this recipe comes from this short grain Japanese rice.  There really is no substitute when making this dish and rather lucky for us, it’s grown right here in California! Doesn’t it feel great to enjoy a delicious rice all the while supporting local farmers and producers?

Check out HERE where you can buy this rice in stores, or you can buy online HERE.
