Step 1

Make the sushi rice. In a small saucepan, combine the rice and water.

Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 20 minutes. Turn off the heat and leave the lid on for another 10 minutes. 

Step 3

In a small saucepan, heat the rice vinegar, sugar, salt and sesame oil just until the sugar is fully dissolved. 

Step 4

Fluff the cooked rice with a fork while stirring in the vinegar mixture. Set aside to cool.

Step 5

Assemble the avocado roll. Lay a sheet of nori on top of a sushi mat. Evenly spread about ½ cup of sushi rice on top of the nori.

Step 6

Arrange the slices of avocado close to the top edge (the edge closest to you) of the nori. 

Step 7

Lift one edge of the sushi mat and tightly roll up to the other end. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.

Step 8

Slice each sushi roll into six pieces and garnish with sesame seeds. Serve with soy sauce and wasabi paste for dipping. Enjoy!

As a vegetarian, it's so hard to find sushi I can eat. This is becoming a new staple meal in my house!
