On the way home from work today, I ventured into our enormous Asian grocery store for some essential ingredients to make very quick and easy maki (sushi rice, seaweed, cucumber and red pepper) oh and of course edamame beans and miso soup on the side. Despite sticky rice ending up everywhere, the rolls came out pretty precise and delicious, the miso soup was impossible to mess up (just add boiling water) and the edamame boiled themselves in 10 minutes. What a wonderful way to create a pretty plate of something you usually have to go to a restaurant to enjoy. By no means am I trying to claim authenticity here (sushi and maki done by professional chefs is a culinary force to be reckoned with), but adding chopsticks to any home made meal makes dinner that much more fun! enjoy.
