Very quick and easy -- since I've lived in Japan I make this almost daily.

Great easy vegetarian sushi. It was my first try and I was very happy with it. The rice came out beautifully, though I put too much rice on the nori and it was tough to roll. This was enjoyed as part of dinner tonight. I'll make this frequently.

This was awesome! I didn't do sushi per se because I had some jasmine rice already made up, but I used cucumber and rice seasoning with nori in it. :-D
