Vegan Sushi Roll

Happy new year, everyone! 


Do you think people are good at making their country’s food? 

I would say a lot of people are familiar with food from their country, so they are knowledgeable for what ingredients are used, and how they make it authentic. 


I’m originally from Japan and currently live in the US, so as long as I can get proper ingredients, I sometimes want to make it. 


But believe me, Sushi is different. Even Japanese chefs devote several years of their time for training before they actually debut as a sushi chef, and getting to know how to choose the ingredients and how they make tasty delicate flavored sushi is endless learning. 


Here is my version of sushi roll from a real Japanese! (keep that in mind, I’m amateur without proper training!)

…Well, looks so…having room to improve so my possibility is immense!  The picture above is the best I could do on that day, and after took the photo shoot, our sushi dinner became roll-your-own-hand-roll-sushi party:P 


What was the cause of failure? Me being greedy by being stingy for roasted seaweed sheets. The similar things happen when I’m making wraps, sandwiches, tacos, burritos, crapes, anything I have to put topping inside roll/close with the wrap!   


What I’m expecting for 2021? Make yummy food more than back in 2020! (And stop being greedy:P)
