This is by far the easiest sushi roll to make. Not only is it vegetarian, it is also vegan, so just about anyone can eat it!

Makes 6 rolls, or 36-48 pieces.

Cooking Directions
  1. Cook sushi rice.
  2. Wash cucumber thoroughly.
  3. If desired, peel cucumber.
  4. Slice the cucumber into ½ cm thick sticks.
  5. Lay a stick of cucumber on the sheet of nori.
  6. Roll and slice the sushi, using only ½ cup of rice for each roll instead of a full cup. These rolls will be smaller than most, as we are only using one ingredient.
  7. Serve with ginger, wasabi, and shoyu, if desired. Enjoy!

    First comment. Wooo.

    I strongly disagree! The only sushi harder to make than this is temaki! Seriously, I’m so used to making packed rolls that I always mess up these little ones … *sobs*

    Really? I find kappa maki the easiest to make, since there’s only one ingredient and it’s not very slippery, so it doesn’t slide out of my roll when I’m trying to roll it! But I can imagine if you are used to making larger inside-out rolls, then this could be very out of the ordinary and more difficult to make. 🙂
