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

    Used a fried tofu, pickled radish, carrot, onion... and sushi rice. Sushi rice is well worth the investment. It is easier to work with.  -  29 Apr 2014


    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!  -  20 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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" !!!  -  31 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
