I’d firstly like to say a big hello to all the new facebook likers… we are so close to 200 likers, so if you subscribe via email and are not yet a fan of the facebook page, please like the page for extra bits and pieces of yummy goodness 🙂
Once we get to 200 likers, I’ll start creating tutorials for things that interest you, so start thinking of things you’d like to learn!
It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post for party food (like my yummy chicken sandwiches), but now that birthday party season is in full force, I thought it would be useful to blog about some savoury options for party food.Ingredients: Sushi Rice Kewpie Mayonnaise (found in the Asian section of the supermarket) Rice Wine Vinegar Sugar Avocado Red Capsicum Cucumber 1 can of tuna in springwater Chicken thighs (about 5) Honey Seaweed Paper Sushi Press or Rolling Mat
I make my sushi using the standard sushi rice that can be bought at the supermarket.
I made this sushi for a friend’s party, and I cooked up 3 cups of this rice with 4.5 cups of water. Once the rice boils, turn the heat to low, cover and leave to cook for a further 20 minutes (best to set your timer for this as I have burnt a few saucepans this way!!)
While this is cooking, chop up your chicken into strips and cook in a pan with a good couple of ‘glugs’ of soy sauce, and 1 tablespoon of honey.
I bought the sushi press from this amazing Japanese shop at Doncaster Shoppingtown called Daiso where everything is $2.80 🙂 An Asian supermarket would also sell them.

Lay out your ingredients on your work station
Line your ingredients in the middle and give a good squeeze of mayonnaise along them. The other way to do this is to create a bit of a ditch in the rice, and lay your ingredients in that. I’m lazy, so I just do it the first way 🙂
Once you’ve rolled up all your sushi, cut into pieces and serve on a platter with some soy sauce!
(unfortunately I forgot to take photos of the sushi once I’d chopped it up, so here’s a picture from VeganEasy of what it looked like!)
