    1. In a large saucepan, cover rice with water, bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until rice is thick and sticky. Remove the rice to a bowl to cool. Add the rice vinegar to the cooled rice.
    2. In a shallow dish, combine soy sauce, honey and garlic. Marinate tofu in this mixture for at least 30 minutes.
    3. Place a sheet of nori on a bamboo sushi mat. Working with wet hands, spread 1/4 of the rice evenly over the nori, leaving about 2cm from the top edge of the nori. Place 2 strips of marinated tofu end to end about 2.5cm from the bottom. Place 2 strips of cucumber next to the tofu, then avocado and carrot.
    4. Roll nori tightly from the bottom, using the mat to help make a tight roll. Seal by moistening nori sheet with water at the top edge. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
    5. Slice rolls with a serrated knife into slices 2.5cm thick to serve.

    Used different ingredients. This recipe is just EXCELLENT! It was my first time making any kind of sushi and I was very happy with the results. I am a vegan, so I substituted brown rice syrup for the honey and I also used short-grain brown rice. I will definitely make this again!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Pretty good. But please, don't rinse your rice! Sushi rice is supposed to be sticky! That's like a Japanese person recommending that you leave the baking powder out of your biscuits, so "they're not too fluffy" !!!  -  29 Sep 2008


    This was my first time making and eating nori rolls...it was a lot of fun! But, I've found I'm not too keen on nori. That aside, I think anyone enjoying nori would like this recipe. Although the rice vinegar also seemed a little strong. I might suggest the newbie forego the rice vinegar for the first bite. Fun recipe!  -  29 Sep 2008
