What is Sprouted Brown Rice?

Sprouted brown rice looks and feels like regular brown rice, and is cooked for the same amount of time. But once cooked, it’s sweeter and more delicate than ordinary brown rice, and a little less chewy. Sprouting any grain increases its nutritional value by making its nutrients more bio-available, so it’s a wonderfully healthy choice for these vegetarian hand rolls!

How to make Brown Rice Sushi Hand Rolls

The first step is to cook the mushrooms, asparagus and sprouted brown rice. Set the vegetables aside and toss the rice with a mixture of rice vinegar, sugar and salt that has been warmed until the sugar has dissolved. Tossing the rice with this mixture gives it a sticky, sushi rice quality.

To roll the hand rolls, place four nori sheets on a flat surface and spoon ¼ of the rice near one edge of each sheet of nori. Wet your fingers and press the rice to spread it into an even square over half the nori sheet.

Divide the mushrooms and asparagus between the four hand rolls, placing carefully down the center of each square of rice. Drizzle vegetables lightly with truffle oil.Roll up the nori, using a little water to make the ends stick if necessary.

Variations

  • You can use any kind of mushroom you’d like for these Brown Rice Sushi Hand Rolls. If you don’t like mushrooms, tofu or avocado are also great options.
  • Instead of truffle oil, try drizzling toasted sesame oil over the vegetables for a more traditional Asian flavor.
  • White rice can be used instead of brown rice if you prefer the taste. Short grain white rice is typically used for sushi, but medium grain will also work.
