Cucumber Sushi in home-made Tortilla Wraps


Cucumber Sushi in home-made Tortilla Wraps

I was feeling oddly creative for dinner tonight. I started with cooking rice. I was thinking about veggie sushi. But we didn't have some of the ingredients: no sushi vinegar, no wraps and no wasabi. Well the kids wouldn't miss the wasabi, so that was ok.
But what to wrap it with? Perhaps a thin dough? So I made a thin dough, with soy sauce in it for color and flavor. I rolled the dough thin and cooked them one at a time in a small non-stick frying pan. A couple turned out too brittle, but most of them worked well.
I made 'sushi' vinegar by mixing sugar, water, white vinegar and a tiny dash of salad vinegar. I also added a little salt to bring out the sweetness. I probably could have used a dash less sugar. But overall it came out okay. My eldest liked them a lot. My little guys mostly ate just the cucumber.

Looks interesting. Never really got into either sushi or cucumbers much. It's always nice to know that men can cook if they really wanted to! LOL :)
