    1. Cook rice and place in a bowl to cool. Add the rice vinegar to the cooled rice.
    2. In a shallow dish, combine soya sauce, honey and garlic. Marinate tofu in this mixture for at least 30 minutes.
    3. Place a sheet of nori on a bamboo sushi mat. Working with wet hands, spread ¼ of the rice evenly over the nori, leaving about 2cm from the top edge of the nori. Place 2 strips of marinated tofu end to end about 2.5cm from the bottom. Place 2 strips of cucumber next to the tofu, then avocado and carrot.
    4. Roll nori tightly from the bottom, using the mat to help make a tight roll. Seal by moistening nori sheet with water at the top edge. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
    5. Slice rolls with a serrated knife into slices 2.5cm thick to serve.

    This recipe is just EXCELLENT! It was my first time making any kind of sushi and I was very happy with the results. I am a vegan, so I substituted brown rice syrup for the honey and I also used short-grain brown rice. I will definitely make this again!  -  20 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Pretty good. But please, don't rinse your rice! Sushi rice is supposed to be sticky! That's like a Japanese person recommending that you leave the baking powder out of your biscuits, so "they're not too fluffy" !!!  -  31 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    There are soy sushi wrappers available for people who don't like the taste of nori. You can find them in asian stores sometimes and online ( has some).  -  13 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
