Learn how to make sushi even kids will love

Prep & Cook Time: 45 Minutes 

Serves: 2–3


  • 2 cups uncooked brown rice
  • 4½ cups water
  • 3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 packet Nori sheets
  • 1 large ripe avocado, cut in long strips
  • Optional: 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • Soy sauce, to taste


  1. Submerge brown rice in water and cook in a rice cooker or on the stove.
  2. When rice is cooked, mix in rice wine vinegar and coconut sugar. Set aside to cool.
  3. Place Nori sheet on a bamboo sushi rolling mat (or a flat surface) and spread the cooled rice evenly on top, leaving a space at the top edge.
  4. Add a strip of avocado to the middle of the sheet and roll it tightly. Using your finger, wet the top edge of the Nori sheet to securely seal the roll.
  5. Slice into 1–2-cm slices and, if using, add sesame seeds on top.
  6. Serve with soy sauce on the side.
