  • 4 sheets nori
  • 3 cups cooked sushi rice cooled to room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 block tofu
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 1 small cucumber
  • 1 red pepper
  • sliced green onion

For garnishing:

  • black sesame seeds
  • sriracha mayo


  • Cook your sushi rice according to the package instructions and allow to cool to room tempertaure once done. Once it has cooled down, add the rice vinegar and mix thoroughly.
  • Cut the tofu into blocks that are not too thick and are the right shape to layer on top of the sushi rice. Cut the carrot, cucumber and red pepper into thin strips.
  • Now layer the tofu, carrot, cucumber and red pepper on top of the sushi rice. Try and keep it as stable as possible and layer everything carefully to make the folding easier. Add sliced green onion and top it off with another layer of sushi rice.
  • Like we have shown in the video, place the nori in a diamond shape with the tip pointing towards you. Add roughly a ⅓ of a cup of cooked rice and shape it into a square. Make sure you align the rice to the nori like we have shown in the video otherwise the sushi sandwich won't fold properly.
  • Now, fold the corners of the nori up and over the top of the layered sushi ingredients while folding in the sides until the corners close and touch eachother on the top. Turn the sushi sandwich over and leave to sit for 5 minutes to set.
  • Once set, cut the sandwich from top to bottom, to show off the fillings properly. Garnish with sesame seeds, sriracha mayo and serve with soy sauce.



Storage: You can cover the sushi sandwiches in clingfilm or Saran wrap and store in the fridge for 3 - 4 days.
