  • brown short grain rice or sushi rice 150g
  • cucumber ½, thinly sliced
  • rice wine vinegar 2 tbsp
  • runny honey or maple syrup 1 tsp
  • white sesame seeds ½ tbsp, toasted
  • black sesame seeds ½ tbsp, toasted
  • edamame beans 80g, blanched or defrosted
  • avocado ½ small, thinly sliced
  • pickled ginger 30g, drained
  • nori sheet 1, crumbled or snipped with scissors
  • mayonnaise (or vegan alternative) 2 tbsp
  • sriracha 1 tbsp


  • Step 1

    Rinse and cook the rice following pack instructions. Meanwhile, toss the cucumber slices in a pinch of salt and leave to drain in a colander for 10 minutes. Whisk together half the vinegar and half the honey in a bowl. Squeeze any excess moisture from the cucumber and add to the bowl. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    Combine the remaining vinegar and honey. Once the rice is cooked and drained, sprinkle with the vinegar-honey mixture and add half the toasted white and black sesame seeds. Fold through, then cover and set aside for 5 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Divide the rice between two bowls and top with the cucumber, edamame, avocado, ginger and nori. Combine the mayo with the sriracha and 1 tsp of water until smooth, and drizzle over the top of the sushi bowls. Sprinkle over the remaining seeds and serve.
