Daring Cooks November Challenge: Sushi

This month the Daring Cooks made sushi. Not going to lie, I was a little worried about this challenge. Unless eating enough sushi to feed a small village counts, I have very little to no experience with (making) sushi. My sister, however, is a homemade sushi enthusiast and with her help, we tackled this challenge! I was really surprised at how easy the whole process was, especially once all your ingredients are nicely chopped. You can find the instructions for these three types of sushi (dragon rolls, spiral rolls, and nigri) at The Bite Me Kitchen.


Dragon Roll: filled with cucumber and General Tso's tofu, topped with avocado slices





Spiral Roll: filled with avocado, carrot, cilantro, daikon, cucumber, and imitation crab




Salmon Nigri
