Many people immediately associate the name Sushi with a dish that has seafood. Interestingly, there are several vegetarian variants of this popular Japanese dish that are made with tropical fruits and vegetables. Sushi is basically vinegar-flavoured rice, rolled up with other ingredients, and cut into strips. Once you get the hang of cooking the rice and preparing the sushi, you can make endless variants using your own combination of toppings.
In this attractive dish, the rice is perked up with spicy bell pepper and juicy carrots. The combination of veggies is perfect in terms of appearance, texture and taste. In order to get the perfect Bell Pepper and Carrot Sushi, it is important to cook the rice properly, stirring occasionally to ensure that it does not stick while cooking.
Rolling up and cutting the sushi is also a task that needs a bit of practice, but it is completely worth the effort. Enjoy the Bell Pepper and Carrot Sushi immediately with tongue-tingling sauces and pickled ginger.
