Of course if you want to be authentic you can always use the real sushi rice, it just takes forever to cook. And don't be shy adding different fillings, like cream cheese and hot pepper jelly, or roast beef and horseradish, or fried bologna, all of which we have made and were fabulous. Hope you enjoy my fake-out on traditional sushi rolls.
Do not omit the plastic wrap - otherwise they won't turn out right..
If cutting for children I suggest cutting each roll into 8 pieces total.
