TIPS & TRICKS:

  • If you have time make rice ahead of time and let it cool completely
  • If you don’t have rice vinegar don’t sweat you can just omit it
  • For the sriracha, put as much as you want in, I have just enough to give it a good flavor so that my toddler will still gobble it down, and then when I make the wraps for Matt and I I give a good squirt before I roll the wrap up
  • I find cutting the vegetables into super thin matchsticks somehow makes the wraps more fun to eat, I think because it reminds me more of sushi
  • Dunk your wraps in soy sauce, it’s delicious, go ahead and add other sushi toppings as well such as sesame seeds, pickled ginger, or wasabi if you have it
  • I use spinach wraps because I like how they are green like sushi rolls, but any sort of wrap should work
  • When rolling the wraps use a piece of tin foil to get a real tight roll, think of watching Chipotle employees wrap up your burrito 😉
