Hello & Happy Tuesday!





As much as I love sushi, I’m not an iron chef at making it and I actually loathe making rice in general as I feel it never comes out right. (truth) Believe it or not, depending on the roll, sushi is less of a struggle than it appears!



Even if this handmade roll doesn’t come out like sheer perfection, the vibrancy in color is there, the flavor is there, and like anything else.. it takes practice! 






What I love most about this recipe is the it’s of course colorful, flavforul, nutrient dense, has more texture with the addition of asparagus, but most of all..  it’s fun to make!
