Recipe: Cucumber Carrot Sushi Rolls

These are actually a lot easier to make then you’d think and while it’s a bit like pancakes (your first roll while likely not look great) each roll will keep improving. I’ve never particularly talented with my hands and these come out impressive anyway. The nice thing is that they have no fish or cooked parts except the rice so they can make ahead of time and are great for picnics and potlucks.
