coconut rice sushi wraps

coconut rice sushi wraps

Last night, I got back from the second part of my kundalini yoga teacher training. It was a very intense long weekend, and right now I’m feeling both amazing and exhausted at the same time! When I got back I was still buzzing, and ended up sleeping for less than 5 hours last night. I think I’ll be taking a long nap this afternoon!!!

Before I left for my training, I’d developed another new recipe to share with you this week. If you’ve seen my social media recently, you’ll have already seen the recipe I’m talking about.. My coconut rice sushi wraps! I decided to make this recipe after I made some coconut rice to pair with a curry a little while ago. I absolutely love the creaminess and richness of coconut rice, and as I ate it with my curry, I thought about how good it would taste inside of a sushi wrap.

As coconut rice is quite sticky, I knew it would be perfect for holding its place inside of a sushi roll, and also help to keep all of the vegetables together. For the vegetables, I kept it fairly simple and used a combination of avocado, carrot, cucumber and spring onion. Of course, the coconut rice makes it fairly different from traditional sushi, but I love adding my own twists on things anyway. I also decided to fold the rice and vegetables up into some rice paper wraps, and keep them in their wrap shape to serve, instead of cutting them like traditional maki.

When the wraps were made, I then paired them with a delicious soy sauce dip. I made the dip with lots of my favourite ingredients like garlic, ginger, coconut syrup and chilli powder. The flavours in it are incredible, and work perfectly with the subtler flavours inside of the sushi wraps.

I love using lots of different spices and flavours in my food, and always like to have lots of varieties of spice at hand whenever I am at home. Something I really enjoy doing, is storing these spices away in my beautiful, labeled Kilner spice jar sets. They really make my spice rack look smart, and I love being able to add the cute labels to them myself.

coconut rice sushi wraps

makes 5 wraps

ingredients

for the coconut rice:

1/2 cup +1 tbsp (105g) white rice

1 400ml can full fat coconut milk – I used Coconut Merchant

1/2 cup (125ml) water

1/2 tsp pink salt

1 tsp rice vinegar

 

for the vegetables:

1 carrot

1/2 cucumber

1/2 avocado

4 spring onions

 

for the wraps:

5 rice paper wraps

 

for the dipping sauce:

4 tbsp soy sauce

1 tsp sesame oil

1 tsp coconut syrup – I used Coconut Merchant

1 tsp rice vinegar

1/4 tsp chilli powder

1 clove garlic

2 cm piece root ginger, grated

 

method

  1. Firstly, make the coconut rice. Add the coconut milk, water, rice and salt into a large pan with a lid, and place it onto a low-medium heat. Cover the rice with the lid, and cook the rice for about 20 minutes or so until almost all of the liquid has gone, and the rice is quite creamy. Stir every 20-30 seconds, so that the rice doesn’t stick to the bottom. Reduce the heat of the pan if the water begins to bubble a lot and rise up out of the pan. When about 1 minute or so is left for the rice to cook, stir in the rice vinegar. Then, when the rice is ready, set it aside.
  2. Next, make the dipping sauce. Add the soy sauce, sesame oil, coconut syrup, rice vinegar, chilli powder, garlic and ginger into a small blender – I used my Nutribullet. Then, blend until smooth. When this is done, pour the sauce into a bowl to serve.
  3. Now, prepare the vegetables. Finely slice the carrot, cucumber and avocado lengthways, and finely chop the spring onion. Then, set them aside ready to make the wraps.
  4. Next, assemble the wraps. Take one of the rice wraps, and dip it into warm water for about 5-10 seconds to soften it. Then, lay the wrap onto a plate. Now, take 1/5 of the rice, and spoon it onto the centre of the wrap, followed by 1/5 of the vegetables. Then, fold the ends over the wrap, and fold over the sides to finish. When this is done, repeat with another 4 wraps, until all of the ingredients have been used up.
  5. Lastly, slice the wraps in half, dip them into the sauce and enjoy!
