I planned on making california rolls for lunch. Unfortunately, my avocado had other plans.
Yesterday it was sitting on top of the fridge perfectly ripe. But when I cut into it to use it for my roll, I discovered it was rotten.
A change of plans was in order so I just went with the ingredients I had on hand:
|Canned crab meat, cucumber, nori sheets, white rice and Vegenaise.|
The crab contains quite a bit of water so I cut a piece of cheese cloth so I could squeeze as much water out of the crab as possible.
|The crab meat after a good squeeze.|
I mixed 1tsp. of Vegenaise with the crab meat and set it aside.
The cucumber was next. I peeled it, cut it in half and scooped out the seeds.
When the rice was done I mixed in 1/2 tsp. of rice vinegar.
Then the assembly began:
Then I realized I didn't have enough rice for another roll, so I made some crab nigiri.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
