Super Easy Kid-Friendly California Sushi

This is a really easy meal that my kids always eat and love. Even the toddler eats it and the picky 5-year-old too. It would be easy to pack for lunch also. You will need:

Imitation crab meat (as much as you and your family will eat I have to buy the jumbo packs or 3 small packs. Does not matter if it is chunk or the sticks.)

1 to 2 heads of Boston lettuce (this depends on how much crab you have)

1 to 2 avocados (again this depends on the amount of crab)

1 ½ cups of minute rice

2 tablespoons of sugar

2 tablespoons of distilled white vinegar

First boil your water for the rice and add the sugar and vinegar to it before you add the rice. Once you add the rice place the lid on and turn off the burner but do not move the pan. Stir once or twice to make sure it isn’t sticking to the pan and once all the liquid is gone remove it to a bowl and let cool completely while you make the sauce. For the dipping sauce you will need:

¼ cup teriyaki sauce

2 teaspoons honey

1 tsp Sriracha (or more if you prefer more heat but I make mine wimpy for the kids)

Dash of sesame seed oil

1 tablespoon of white vinegar

Stir together and place in a bowls. Peel the lettuce leaves off carefully and slice up your avocados. I lay all my ingredients out buffet style so the kids can pick and choose what they want.

To assemble just place some rice on a lettuce leaf with crab and avocado then top with sauce. Easiest recipe ever and a good go to meal when you don’t really want to cook. Also it is easy to make the rice ahead of time so the meal is even faster to prepare. If you decide to do the avocado ahead of time just be sure to coat the slices in some lemon juice to keep them from browning.

    I usually don’t like sushi, but this sounds good.
