Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cups sushi rice
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp raw cane sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup purple cabbage thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cucumber thinly sliced
  • 1 carrot thinly sliced
  • 2 radish thinly sliced
  • 1 avocado thinly sliced
  • tamari for dipping, or soy sauce

Instructions

  • And water and rice to a pot and bring to boil. Then reduce heat to simmer, cover with a lid, and cook for 20 minutes, or until cooked through.
  • In a saucepan combine rice vinegar, cane sugar, salt and sesame oil. Bring to low heat and stir to combine.
  • When rice is cooked remove from heat and pour in the liquid mixture in batches, stirring rice to combine.
  • Cover pot of rice with clean dish towel and let sit for 10-15 minutes. Then scoop rice onto a clean surface and spread it out to cool slightly before handling.
  • Prepare your veggies for topping: Using a vegetable peeler thinly slice the cucumber and carrots lengthwise into thin ribbons. Thinly slice radish and avocados.
  • When rice is cool enough to handle lather donut moulds with a bit of sesame oil. (I used a 6-cavity silicon donut mould for this). Scoop rice into donut moulds to cover. Pulling apart the rice in the middle to form a hollow circle. Then flip mould onto a flat surface to expose donut shapes.
  • Decorate each donut with cabbage, cucumber, carrots, radish, and avocado. Serve with tamari, or soy sauce. (Option to also serve with any remaining veggies on the side).
