When I say I love sushi, I don't think that quite does how much I love sushi justice. I mean, I really love sushi. A lot. But, as many of us have found, rolling sushi isn't the easiest of tasks, and we usually end up with an interesting mess of rice and falling apart seaweed. Also, I feel like sushi isn't an acceptable dish to serve up to the family? Don't get me wrong, I'd be ecstatic if anyone served me up sushi for dinner. But my family consists of two teenagers, two adults, and myself, so cooking to please everyone isn't the easiest of jobs. Enter the sushi bowl! Deconstructed sushi! Bowl of goodness! This went down a treat, has so many delicious flavours, and is super nutritious. Get on it.

What you'll need:

2 cups of brown rice
3.5 cups of water
2 teaspoons of sea salt

Juice of half a lemon
2 tablespoons of brown rice vinegar
2 teaspoons of honey/liquid sweetener of choice
1 teaspoon of freshly grated ginger

2 sheets of nori seaweed, cut into strips using scissors
1 avocado, thinly sliced
1 cucumber, thinly sliced
Shallots (as much as you want! We like plenty)
Sprouted mung beans (or any kind of sprouts really)
1 head of broccoli
Mixed greens
Black sesame seeds

What you'll need to do:

Soak the rice for a few hours (not necessary, but it speeds up the cooking process), rinse, then drain. Combine the rice, water and salt in a saucepan and bring to the boil, cover, then simmer gently until all the water is absorbed (this takes around 30 minutes) (keep an eye on it towards the end and stir it regularly so that rice doesn't stick to the bottom and burn).

While the rice is cooking, combine the lemon juice, vinegar, honey and ginger in a saucepan, bring it to the boil and cook for a minute or two, stirring regularly. Set aside.

Chop your broccoli into pieces, and steam lightly. Slice up your avocado, cucumber and shallots.

Once the rice is finished cooking, stir in your lemon juice/vinegar sauce.

Serve the rice into individual bowls, on top of a handful of mixed greens. Top with the broccoli, avocado, cucumber, shallots, mung beans, nori seaweed, and finally sprinkle with some black sesame seeds. Voila!
