Makin’ Maki

Got a book on vegan sushi from the library and decided to try my hand at some futomaki with sushi rice, pressed tofu, english cucumber, carrots, and daikon.

Pretty happy with how this turned out. I don’t think I’ve tried making my own since an engineering student event on campus REDACTED years ago.

I used half as much wasabi powder in the tamari to make a dipping sauce and it was still almost too strong for my tastebuds!

It was Theo’s first sushi; he stuck with plain tamari and mostly liked it, though after a few pieces he started passing on the seaweed.
