Sushi Squares

posted in: Recipes 0

I love making sushi, but I tend to let out some choice words in the process. My kids have learned a lot of what you’re not supposed to say in public from me in the kitchen. This recipe forms the sushi into one 8 inch by 8 inch brick that can easily be cut into squares. It’s all the same flavors, just simplified.

  • 1 1/2 Cups Sushi Rice
  • Packet nori squares these are the small squares that are about 3 or 4 inch squares
  • 2 Cups Water
  • 2 Carrots cut into thin strips
  • 1 Cucumber cut into thin strips
  • 1 Avocado cut into thin strips
  • 3-4 TB Wasabi Mayo
  • 1 T Salt
  • 1 1/2 TB Rice vinegar
  • 2 TB Sugar
  • 1/2 TB Kosher Salt


  • Add rice and water to a medium pot and cover. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and let sit for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Add the Kosher salt, sugar and vinegar to a small bowl and mix to combine. Add the mixture to the rice and mix well to combine.
  • Line an 8x8 pan with plastic wrap, and then lightly spray with cooking oil.
  • Press 1/2 the rice into the pan, covering the bottom completely.
  • Lay the nori over the rice to create a thin layer.
  • Evenly lay your cucumber, carrots and avocado slices onto the nori. Drizzle with the wasabi mayo.
  • Cover the vegetables with another thin layer of nori, then top with the rest of the rice.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and press down. If you can place another 8x8 pan on top of the rice, I recommend doing that, though it's not necessary. It just helps make it tighter, and easier to cut. Place in the fridge overnight.
  • To serve, remove the plastic wrap, then then the 8x8 upside down on a cutting board. Use a super sharp knife to slice into small squares. Enjoy!
