Deconstructed California Roll

   Deconstructed California Roll. It's like your favorite sushi without all the work because you just toss all the ingredients in a bowl.  

What if I told you that you could curb that sushi craving at home without struggling with rolling your own?  That would be a dream come true, right?

It was for me when I made this Deconstructed California Roll.  All the same ingredients that are in my favorite sushi just waiting to be devoured from an easily accessible bowl.  

It’s 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.  And, radishes are readily available and in season here in the Golden State, so please, don’t leave it out!

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

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

The base and structure of this recipe comes from this short grain Japanese rice.  There really is no substitute when making this dish and lucky for us,  it’s grown right here in California!  Isn’t it great to find and support local farmers and producers?  Check out HERE where you can buy this rice in stores, or you can buy online HERE or you can win some HERE
