- 1 Cucumber, cut in strips
- 2 cups red quinoa
- 4 cups water
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 cup palta, cut in strips
- 1 carrot, cut in strips
- 4-6 sheets of nori (dried seaweed)
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 2 tbsp rice vinegar
First rinse the quinoa. In a pot add the water and the quinoa and bring to a boil. Cover, turn down the heat to low and cook for 20 minutes. Let it cool completely. Mix 2 tablespoons rice vinegar, 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons salt until sugar and salt dissolve.
Place nori on top of a bamboo sushi rolling mat. Layer of cooked quinoa over the nori, pressing down with fingers for even thickness, and leaving a 1/2 margin all around.
Line up a few pieces of cucumber, palta and carrot in the middle of the rectangle of quinoa.. Roll sushi tightly, then cut crosswise into bite size pieces, using a very sharp knife.
