Braided Cucumber Sushi


This sushi roll is as cool as a cucumber — mainly because it's wrapped in one.



  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 sheet nori
  • 200 grams sushi rice
  • 3 slices avocado
  • 3 pieces imitation crab
  • 4 pieces egg omelette
  • Sesame seeds

Let's get Cooking...

  1. Place a sheet of plastic wrap onto your work surface. Slice cucumber thinly with a vegetable slicer to make 20 thin strips. Place 10 strips horizontally onto the wrap. Then place the remaining strips of cucumber vertically, making a braid pattern.
  2. Place a sheet of nori on top of the braided cucumber. Spread sushi rice on top of the nori sheet, leaving a little space open at the end.
  3. Arrange imitation crab, avocado slices and egg omelette pieces on top.
  4. Roll up tightly and let it rest for a few minutes.
  5. Cut into bite-sized pieces and arrange onto a serving platter. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top and enjoy with soy sauce.
