  12. Wrap the foil or glad wrap up and leave the sushi in the fridge for at least 15 minutes to allow the rice to soak into the norisushi sandwich
  13. Repeat with the other 3 sushi sandwiches
  14. To serve, unwrap the sushi and slice in half with a sharp knife


You can use brown rice if you like, you will need 2½ cups water and to cook for about 30 minutes. Be mindful as sushi doesn’t hold together quite as well with brown rice.

Try making these with any fillings you like.
