Another kind of sushi. It's delicious, healthy and suitable for vegetarian. Very good for pack lunch too.
8 fried bean curd pouches (abura-age)
1 tsp toasted black sesame seeds (I used white ones)
130g Lebanese cucumber, halved seeded, diced finely (I used 1 grated carrot)
1 ½ cups prepared sushi rice
8 strips seasoned gourd/kampyo (I didn’t use it)
Fill the pouch with the rice mixture. Be careful not to overfill or tear pouch.
If you use gourd:
Fold one side of pouch down over rice, fold the other side over the first and turn the pouch over so the join is underneath.
Tie a strip of gourd around pouch with loose knot on top. Garnish with a little red pickled ginger and reserved sesame seeds.
Repeat with remaining ingredients.
