No-Sushi Sushi Rice base (4 people) 🍚

250 g Arborio rice  
1-1,5 l water 
1 tbsp Canola oil (or other neutral oil of your preference)  
1 tsp Rice wine vinegar

Making the rice:

  1. Heat up the oil in a pot over a stove and add rice. Sauté the rice for a few minutes until the rice gets a bit translucent (but make sure the rice doesn’t burn or get dark brown).
  2. Add the water to the rice gradually, 2 dl at the time. When the water has been absorbed, keep adding the water and stirring until the rice is cooked fully. You might need more or less water than in the recipe, so there’s no right or wrong amount!
  3. Lastly, add the rice wine vinegar to the slightly cooled rice and mix everything together.

2 tbsp Soy sauce 
2 tbsp Agave syrup

  2. Close the Ziploc bag / container lid and shake to mix everything together and let the chickpeas marinate for at least 15 minutes.

250 g Radishes
