Hand rolling sushi doesn’t have to be hard, and if you’re a beginner, these temaki rolls are for you. Cutting the nori into 4 equal squares allows us to stuff the middle and simply fold over 2 corners and seal. Family and friends can help with these, or line them up and stuff them yourself while sneaking bites of vegetables and sticky rice.

INSTRUCTIONS

1
Cook the sushi rice
Add the sushi rice, 1 cup water, and a pinch of salt to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook until the rice is tender and all the water is absorbed, about 15 to 18 minutes.
2
Prepare the vegetables
Cut the nori sheets into 4 squares. Cut the carrot into thin sticks. Trim, deseed, and cut the peppers into thin strips. Thinly slice the scallion. Halve the avocado and remove the pit. Thinly slice the flesh.
3
Cook the edamame
Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat with the sesame oil. Once the oil is hot, add the edamame and cover. Add ¼ cup water and cook, covered and shaking the pan occasionally, until hot, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add a pinch of salt.
4
Build the temaki
Lay out the nori sheets rough side up. Place a small bowl of water nearby to dip your fingers into. Add about 1 tbsp of cooked sushi rice to the center of each sheet, and spread it out a bit with damp fingers. Layer on the carrot sticks, pepper strips, sliced scallions, and sliced avocado. Roll the nori, using a little water to seal two corners.
5
Make the spicy mayo
In a small bowl, mix together the Vegenaise and Sriracha.
6
Serve
Divide the temaki sushi between plates and serve with the sesame edamame and pickled ginger, along with tamari and spicy mayo for dipping.
