Our Blogger Recipe Challenge group was fortunate enough to experiment with a brand new product this month! Have you ever made sushi at home? Or wanted to? RiceWrap Foods sent us all their Slice of Rice, designed for home chefs as a “roll your own” product. Slice of Rice is convenient and easy of use, and is vegan, gluten free and certified kosher.
Since March is Dessert month for the group, I knew I wanted to try and make a dessert sushi. I know it may sound odd, but it was SO good. The Slice of Rice is perfectly seasoned and paired well with the strawberries and mint. Oh and did I mention there is Dulce de Leche on top? Yum!
Now I've never made sushi at home, and I quickly found that I am not good at the whole rolling aspect. I mean, I kinda failed. It was definitely an issue with me, not the rice, but I just couldn't get it to roll the way I wanted it to! So I decided instead of rolls to make sushi pillows. They really did turn out cute and tasted fabulous. Check out the simple recipe below and try it out yourself!
