Sushi has somewhat of a mystique about it. Shrouded in seaweed, rice and various vegetables, neatly plated in a neat little roll, it exudes an air of secrecy. How could a mere mortal possibly a roll so clean, complete, and almost holy? It turns out that it’s not as difficult nor expensive as restaurants would like you to believe! Indeed, a with a single trip to an asian food market, you can make quick and cheap sushi for yourself.


To make 3 rolls of sushi:


For the roasted sweet potato:

1 sweet potato

1 tbsp. maple syrup

1 tbsp. vegetable oil

1 tsp. sesame oil


For the sushi rice:

1 cup white rice

1 ⅓ cups water

1 ½ tbsp rice vinegar

¾ tbs salt


For Rolling and Serving:

3 nori sheets

2 scallions

1 avocado

toasted sesame seeds


pickled ginger

soy sauce

Sriracha and Mayonnaise



  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Stir oil, maple syrup and sesame oil together in a small bowl.
  3. Peel sweet potato and cut, lengthwise, into strips that are just under 1/2 inch thick, as if you were making sweet potato fries. Rub with oil and maple syrup mixture, or place into a bowl and toss to coat. Arrange strips on baking sheet. Bake about 25 minutes, until tender, gently turning halfway through.
