Blueberry Fruit Sushi

What in the world is blueberry fruit sushi? Trust us – it’s uniquely delicious! The different textures and flavors of the rice, avocado, peach and blueberries combine for an explosion of truly decadent taste. Bonus: how fun is it to use chopsticks for dipping the blueberry fruit sushi in its complementary sauce?!

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup short grain rice
  • 1 ¼ cups water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. For the rice: In a medium pot over medium low heat, combine rice, water, sugar  and salt.
  2. Cook about 15 minutes until rice has absorbed the water and is cooked through but still firm.
  3. Stir in coconut milk and vanilla.  Mixture should be thick.  Let cool.
  4. On a piece of parchment paper with wet hands pat half of the rice into a 7 x 5 inch rectangle.
  5. Lay half of the blueberries along the long end of the rectangle.  Add half of the avocado and apple slices.
  6. Roll up in the parchment  to enclose the fruit and form a long tight roll or log .
  7. Unroll the parchment; cut the rice roll crosswise into 1 inch pieces to make “sushi rolls”.
  8. Repeat with remaining rice mixture and fruit.
