    Mirj's Note:

    I adore sushi, but my BH refuses to even look at it, let alone eat it. I thought he was squeamish about the fish, but after I made some vegetarian sushi he still wouldn't go near it (yay, more for me). It turns out that the seaweed also gives him the heebie jeebies. Here's a recipe that even the sushi sissies will go for.

    1. 1
      Add the vinegar and sugar to the rice, and mix well.
    2. 2
      The purpose in this is not just to mix the flavors into the rice, but also to cool the rice just a little bit.
    3. 3
      Soften each leaf of lettuce by dipping it into boiling water for just a few seconds, until it can be easily rolled.
    4. 4
      Remove the lettuce from the water with tongs (unless you have asbestos fingers), and place flat, internal side down, on a kitchen towel to drain.
    5. 5
      Place about 2 tablespoons of rice in the center of each leaf.
    6. 6
      Top with a cucumber strip and with a carrot strip.
    7. 7
      Fold the sides of the leaf over the rice, and then roll the ends up over the filling to form a tight and compact bundle.
    8. 8
      Continue with the other 7 lettuce leaves, making 8"sushi" bundles in all.
    9. 9
      Place in a single layer on a dish and chill until serving time.
    10. 10
      Allow at leave 15 minutes chilling time.

      What a great idea! These turned out very well. I can't always find the seaweed wraps so this is an easy alternative for me. I added cilantro, tofu, spinach, scallions and red pepper, and steamed the carrot and pepper just a little first. Before rolling I also added a sauce of wasabi and tamari mixed together. Thankyou so much! Now I can eat these anytime.

      This recipe is brilliant. Most of my family hates the seaweed part so this will make them try it.
