Vegie Rice Turned into Sushi

This is the sort of crafty recipe that is at the heart of a family kitchen. Last nights dinner turned into a tasty lunch!


  • Rice – basmati &/or brown
  • Vegetables: corn, peas, sliced beans, diced carrots, zucchini, capsicum
  • Variations to serve with rice if desired: 
  • Cooked chicken pieces 
  • Cooked tofu (garlic and tamari is tasty)
  • Omelet


Cook enough rice for dinner with leftovers. Dice the vegies into small cubes & steam them lightly. Then simply mix the vegies through the rice in a large bowl or dish. The vegie rice gets served with tamari & the preferred meat or vegetarian option.

The transformation…

  • Leftover rice with vegies
  • Sushi vinegar
  • Seaweed sheets
  • Sliced extras if desired- eg chicken, tofu, beef, cucumber, egg, avocado

Add sushi vinegar to leftover rice & roll into sushi wraps, adding extras if desired.
