letnji-susi

Ingredients:

  • 150 gr integral rice
  • 3 leaf of algae nori
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 200 gr mixed vegetables
  • 10 g salt 
  • water for cooking rice and mixed vegetables

Directions:

  • Pour approximately 750 ml of water in the pot and salt it.
  • Then put a vegetable mix in a salted water and cook for about 10 minutes.
  • Put the cooked vegetables in the colander, rinse it with a cold water and let it cool down while preparing the rice.
  • Put 600 ml of water in the second pot, and then add an integral rice.
  • Cook rice 17 minutes, then remove the pot from the stove and be sure to cover it.
  • Leave the closed pot with cooked integral rice for 17 minutes, and then decant the rest of the water if rice hasn’t soaked it up.
  • Spice rice with a soy sauce and let it cool down a little bit.
  • Once the rice and the vegetable mix have been cooled, put a leaf of nori algae with a bright side down, preferably on a bamboo pad (algae can be also wrapped in an aluminum foil).
  • Fill the algae leaf with 1/3 of the rice, leaving about 2 cm of empty space on one side of the algae, in order to make it easier to curl.
  • Put a mixture of vegetables on the rice by making a line along the rice, 4 cm from the edge of the rice.
  • Close the leaf and form algae into roll.
  • Edge the algae glue with a few drops of water.
  • Repeat the process with other algae leaves.

Note:  Algae nori has a specific flavor, so most people do not like it when taste it for the first time, but for those who prefer stronger tastes it’s the right thing.
