The day before, I cooked some brown rice and sprinkled it with mirin, sugar, rice vinegar, and salt - to mimic sushi rice. In the morning, I cut up some nori sheets. Then I just layered in rice, nori strips, diced carrots, sprouts, chopped cucumber, and a few chopped green onions. I poured a little soy sauce down the side to hit the sides of the layers but not drench the entire stack.
I meant to put a little pickled ginger at the very top, like the cherry on a sundae, but I forgot; this was, after all, a school morning blur.
I think I sent along homemade cookies as the go-with, but I forget (see above: school morning).
Other ideas to layer in: chopped, cooked sweet potato; sliced avocado dipped in lemon juice; shredded turnip; chopped watercress or lettuce; strips of scrambled egg; baked tofu
And when you look at the top of the jar, you see what a pragmatic, thrifty Mennonite I am. I wonder if this will be the topic of a mother/offspring therapy session one day. . .
I am so impressed that your children eat these things!
And, LOL, it is amazing what adult children will say was disturbing to them as children.
I agree with both of Lana's comments! And I'll add that these are SO attractive for the lunchbox. I love good food presentation :)
That is a fantastic idea!
Great idea, but I'd need a much bigger jar for me:)
Excellent idea- my 3 would love this, especially with some avocado or smoked salmon trimmings. Or even smoked mackerel...
How clever! And you know, I recently confused a friend who was helping cook dinner with me by handing her a a jar that had a really mis-matched lid like that. I can't remember exactly, but I think it said cherry jelly and there was something like brown gravy in it. She was momentarily skeptical of my cooking/canning ability I think! :)
So clever. I wonder if my kids would like sushi.
And the jar lid. Laugh out loud. My dad always got irritated with my mom for keeping things in old containers...like slaw in a sour cream tub or chicken salad in an old yogurt container.
