RECIPE: Student’s Sushi


Student life is tough and full of challenges. However, our ability to find a way out of any situation and always keeping our spirits high – help us to survive through semesters.

Today you will learn how to make one of the most famous dishes of Japanese cuisine but in terms of poor student life.


  • ½ kg of Japanese rice
  • water
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 sausage
  • cheese
  • 1 pack of nori (dried seaweed)
  • sushi sauce according the taste


  1. The most important step is making rice, it should be very fluff. To make rice of such consistency wash it before cooking and add water in the ratio 2:1.
  2. While water is boiling, you can start cutting filling ingredients into long thin stripes. If you prefer peeled vegetables – remove the peel first.
  3. After everything is done, place nori, shiny side down, on a bamboo sushi mat (In Japan people use special mats for forming rolls, but if you do not have it, then take a towel).
  4. Then press the cooled rice on the nori, leaving some space from the edges.
  5. Now it is time for filling! Line all chopped ingredients on top of rice.
  6. Finally, using towel or bamboo mat, roll the nori into a tight roll. 

As an advice: can wait a few minutes to let rolls get sticky and juicy.

You can experiment with different ingredients – be creative!

And as a final step: just grab chopsticks and enjoy!
