Vegetable Hand Rolls (Temaki)

Makes 20 Hand Rolls.
Prep Time30 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time55 mins


  • 1 cup (180g) uncooked sushi rice
  • 3 TBS sushi seasoning
  • 10 sheets toasted sushi nori, seaweed
  • 1/2 English cucumber or 2 Persian cucumbers
  • 1 medium red bell pepper
  • 6 oz (170g) preserved daikon
  • 2 medium fuyu persimmons, optional
  • 2 small avocados, pitted and sliced
  • furikake for topping, optional


  • Cook the sushi rice according to package instructions. When it is done cooking, scoop the cooked rice into a large bowl and let it cool for about 15 minutes. Mix in the sushi seasoning.
  • While the rice is cooking, prepare the vegetables by cutting them into matchstick-size. If you want to add persimmons in the hand rolls, peel the persimmons, and cut it into matchsticks.
  • Cut the nori sheets in half. Place one half of the nori sheet on a board, shiny side down. Spoon some rice onto the nori (about 2 to 3 tablespoons). Spread the rice so that you fill one half of the nori. Top the nori with a few slices of cucumber, red pepper, daikon, and persimmon. Top with one slice of avocado, and shake some furikake on top.
  • Starting with the lower right-hand corner, roll the nori towards the left, until you reach the end. Seal the hand roll with a few grains of rice. Repeat with all the other nori sheets.
  • Serve immediately.


1. You want to serve these immediately because the seaweed loses its crunch very quickly.[br][br]2. Feel free to customize your hand rolls by adding your favorite ingredients![br][br]3. The rice will get sticky, so I like having a bowl of water on the side for me to rinse off my hands.[br][br]4. I like eating these hand rolls as is. You can serve it with soy sauce if you like.
