Daring Cooks: Sushi

by Lauren | Celiac Teen on November 14, 2009

The first time I had Sushi, was in grade 7. At school. It wasn’t very good, or at least I convinced myself that was the case. Sort of slimey, and very very cold. Not my cup of tea. Had’t tried it since.

This month’s Daring Cooks challenge was to make Sushi. I was a little weary of this. Okay a bit more than a little. And I almost forgot about the challenge! Honestly, I didn’t mean to – the month just got away from me – sprinted in fact. But because Audax and Rose were hosting, I knew I couldn’t miss it! Audax is super-ambitious in all Daring Challenges. He makes a billion variations of each type – and becomes an expert in the process. And Rose is so sweet! Always egging people on, and displaying her gorgeous photos =D. Obviously, I cared. Plus, I’ve participated in every Daring Cooks challenge ever so I couldn’t stop now.
The November 2009 Daring Cooks challenge was brought to you by Audax Artifex and Rose of The Bite Me Kitchen. They chose sushi as the challenge.

Onto the pictures!
Draining the rice. For the 5th time. You are so jealous.

Okay! Now we’re having fun. I’m already dreaming up the parties. Maybe a movie while the rice cooks, and then when its over, we’ll all race into the kitchen, pull out the cutting boards and get chopping. Then, everyone will watch in amazement as I roll up the sushi. And then they’ll all try, and inevitably one of theirs will be worlds better than mine. That’s half the fun though, right?
Oh, and incase you were wondering, that is red pepper and cucumber filling.

Its a dragon roll! Are you running for cover?

I’m seeing the Joker. 2 cucumbers = eyes. Red pepper = mouth.
You see it too? No? Okay, onto the next one!

Nigiri I think. Known to me as Rice + Topping.

My favourite. The one with all the flavours of course!
Lets see… starting at the top, we’ve got avocado, red pepper, asparagus, cucumber, and more avocado!

Yipee! It worked! It looks good. And tastes even better!

See? Yum.
This was wonderful! I learned so so very much, and dare I say…
I liked it.
Thanks again to Audax and Rose! Naturally gluten free challenges are the best! To those who haven’t tried – please do! This actually made me like sushi. I’ve been running for years. Not that dramatic, but still… Try it!! The recipe can be found on Audax’s site or at the Daring Kitchen!
I’m thinking I’ll have to try out some more flavours in the nearer than you think future…
