Tips:wolf paw print

  1. You can either lay out all the ingredients and have your guests roll them or you can prepare them and slice them in 1 inch pieces. If you aren't familiar with Wasabe it is HOT! It comes in a tube for easy use, or in dry powder. (Watch ingredients though... I have seen some Wasabe paste made with Lactose!)
  2. If you can't find vegan Wasabe, just use regular dry mustard powder, and add enough water to form a paste.... It is very hot too!
  3. Just a small dab will seal the roll.
  4. NOTES: Seaweed is found usually in the oriental sections of super markets. They come in flat packs, about the size of a piece of paper.
  5. Be sure and put extra Wasabe or mustard paste on the table for people to use at their own risk.
  6. It turns into a fun part of the gathering just watching people put too much Wasabe on their sushi roll!
  7. I make these all the time for a quick lunch for myself...
  8. You can roll the sushi without the seaweed, if you prefer, but it takes practice, using a bamboo matt.
