Barbara is sharing her mock kid’s sushi rolls today. I thought these were the coolest idea. Take it away Barbara.
The inspiration behind the Sushi Roll-up recipe is that kids love any kind of roll-up! Most kids would not be able to make a “real” sushi roll in their home so I wanted a recipe that appealed to parents but also clever and kid-friendly. This recipe is created with simple ingredients available in most home kitchens. It allows creativity for kids and parents to personalize their sushi roll-up by using their favorite veggies and fruit combinations.
Enchanted Sushi Roll-ups
Makes 24 sushi sandwiches
6 slices whole wheat bread, crusts removed
4 tablespoons soft spread cream cheese
3 tablespoons sour cream
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon honey
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup 6 inch matchstick sliced carrots
1 cup 6 inch match stick sliced and peeled apples
3 strawberries, finely minced
Let’s make sushi!
2. Mix together cream cheese, sour cream, mustard, honey and salt and pepper to taste. Spread over each bread slice.
3. Lay two carrot match sticks and two apple matchsticks at the bottom of each slice of bread, letting the fruits and veggies hang over edges. Roll up bread, pressing gently to seal. With a serrated edge knife, cut each roll into four equal pieces.
4. Garnish with chopped strawberries and serve. May be made ahead up to 3 hours in advance.
