Ingredients

6 cups prepared White Sushi Rice, see Eden recipe

1 pound organic tempeh, any variety

2 Tbsp Eden Organic Safflower Oil

2 cups water, for cooking tempeh

1 Tbsp Eden Shoyu Soy Sauce

1/2 cup Eden Organic Sauerkraut, drained

1 Tbsp any Eden Organic Mustard

10 to 12 whole fresh green shiso leaves, optional
or 2 green onions (green part only)

6 sheets Eden Sushi Nori

(Add All Eden Ingredients to Shopping Cart)

Directions

Prepare the sushi rice the day before or several hours prior to making the sushi and allow to cool to room temperature.

Heat oil in a skillet. Add tempeh (do not cut). Brown both sides for 3 to 4 minutes. Add water to cover tempeh. Add shoyu, cover the skillet. Simmer 15 minutes. Remove cover and cook, over high heat, until all liquid evaporates. Remove tempeh and slice into lengthwise strips about 1/2 inch thick.

Take a bamboo sushi mat, set it on a cutting surface. Place a sheet of sushi nori on the mat with the rough, dull side facing up. Take 1 cup of cooked rice and spread it evenly on the bottom half of the sheet of nori. Lightly moisten a wooden spoon or rice paddle, and press down firmly on the rice to evenly spread and cover half the sheet of nori. Using a spoon, spread a 1/4 of the mustard in a diagonal line across the rice and smooth out. Place the sauerkraut on top of the mustard. Next, place the a couple of shiso leaves or green onion leaf. Then place 1 strip of tempeh on top.

Pull the mat up with your thumbs, hold and tuck the fillings with all eight fingers. Roll forward in a jelly roll fashion, tucking the nori forward, while pulling back the mat slightly each time you roll forward. Just before you reach the end of the sheet of nori, moisten the end with a little cold water. Continue rolling until you have a cylinder shaped roll. Tightly wrap the bamboo mat around the roll, and squeeze gently to seal the nori roll. Leave the mat around the roll. Remove the mat and place the sushi roll on the cutting board.

Moisten a sharp knife with cold water and cut the roll in half. Cut each half in half, then each quarter in half, moistening the knife each time before cutting. You should now have eight equal size pieces of sushi. Repeat the above steps until you have 4 rolls or 32 pieces of sushi. Arrange on a serving platter.

Try mixing a little Eden Wasabi Powder (Japanese Mustard) in with hot water and use as a dip sauce. (See Eden recipe).

NOTE: If using Eden untoasted nori, stove top toast per package directions before making sushi.
