– 4 shoots of nori sea vegetable
– 2 cups of cooked short-grain rice
– 1 cup of cucumber strips
– 1 cup of cooked sweet potatoes
– ½ cup of rice vinegar
– 2 tablespoons of sesame oil
– 2 tablespoons of toasted sesame seeds
In a suitably sized mixing bowl, combine the rice vinegar with the sesame oil. Add the cucumber strips, stirring gently, and allow to marinate for about 4 hours. Remove from the marinade and drain. With a blender, whip the sweet potatoes until they are smooth and creamy. Lay a piece of plastic wrap on a flat surface. Place half a cup of rice on the plastic wrap and press to the size of a sheet of non. Place a sheet of non on top of rice, and then spread ¼ cup of blended sweet potatoes on non and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Place ¼ cup cucumber strips in the middle.
Roll up from the outside and dampen the edge to seal (the rice will be on the outside of the roll).
Allow to chill for at least 3 hours before slicing. Slice with a damp knife into half-inch thick slices.
