    Sushi Nori, Raw Untoasted, 1 sheet, 1 serving
    White Rice, short grain, .5 cup
    *Avacado, whole, medium 1 serving = 1 medium whole avacado, 2 servings
    Cucumber (with peel), .25 cup slices
    *Imitation Krab Leg, per 1 leg, 1 serving
    *Seeds, sesame seeds, whole, roasted and toasted, .25 oz

    1 cups sushi or short grain rice
    1 cups water
    1.5 tablespoons rice vinegar
    1 tablespoons sugar
    .5 tablespoon sea salt


Cut each roll into 10 pieces. Serve with pickled ginger, wasabi and soy sauce.


Place the rice and water into a medium saucepan and place over high heat. Bring to a boil, uncovered. Once it begins to boil, reduce the heat to the lowest setting and cover. Cook for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 10 minutes.

Combine the rice vinegar, sugar and salt in a small bowl and heat in the microwave on high for 30 to 45 seconds. Transfer the rice into a large wooden or glass mixing bowl and add the vinegar mixture. Fold thoroughly to combine and coat each grain of rice with the mixture. Allow to cool to room temperature before using to make sushi or sashimi.

Cover a bamboo rolling mat with plastic wrap. Cut nori sheets in half crosswise. Lay 1 sheet of nori, shiny side down, on the plastic covered mat. Wet your fingers with water and spread about 1/2 cup of the rice evenly onto the nori. Sprinkle the rice with sesame seeds. Turn the sheet of nori over so that the rice side is down. Place cucumber, avocado and crab sticks in the center of the sheet. Grab the edge of the mat closest to you, keeping the fillings in place with your fingers, and roll it into a tight cylinder, using the mat to shape the cylinder. Pull away the mat and set aside. Cover with a damp cloth. Repeat until all of the rice has been used.
