Sushi with sun-dried tomatoes and basil
Sushi sushi sushi! Hello my name is Carlijn and I am addicted to sushi. I try to eat it at least once a week, wether it’s homemade, take away or in a sushi restaurant. But just like other dishes I like to try some different sushi combinations just to keep it interesting. For example, I’ve had sushi with strawberries but now it’s time for sushi with sun-dried tomatoes, basil and lactose free cream cheese! I know you’ll love it, so here we go.
Ingredients for sushi with sun-dried tomatoes:
- Sushi rice
- Sun-dried tomatoes (preferably not drowned in oil)
- Fresh basil
- Lactose free cream cheese
- Nori leaves
Prepare the sushi rice like you normally do. I always use a rice cooker and don’t add sugar and/or vinegar.
Cut the nori leaves in half.
Spread the rice on 2/3 of the nori leaf and spread some cream cheese on it. Put the fresh basil on top of the cream cheese. Cut the sun-dried tomatoes in strips and put them onto the basil.
Roll up you nori leaf, chop into equal pieces and enjoy your sushi with sun-dried tomatoes!
VARIATION: You can replace the basil with fresh mint.
If you’ve tried both combinations I’d love to hear your opinion!
