Sushi Mice

Not-so-spooky mice made out of sushi, a great addition for the Halloween gathering!

Aren’t these guys adorable? Well, not everything has to be creepy and spooky for Halloween. We can have some fun critters wandering around. Both kids and adults are sure to gather around these cuties:)

I always make sushi for kids with leftover cooked white basmati rice and that is what I’ve used. Go ahead and use sushi rice if you have on hand. Use cooked and completely cooled white rice. Damp hands is your best friend for shaping these sushi! You may have to dampen them quite often during the process.

I have not given any specific measurements for the veggies, because it is just a thin cut for each mouse. All the veggies are optional, so you can totally go with your families choice.

These mice are delicate, so handle with care. So, they are not portable! I found them more sturdy if we skip all the veggies inside each mouse and shape only the rice and then insert the tail, ears and eyes. But, that wouldn’t make them a sushi, would it? Also, try practicing with less filling. More the filling, more challenging to work with!

Silpats are non-stick baking mats that you place on a baking sheet and nothing sticks to it! One genius product! It works wonderful here. If you don’t own one, then simply use a piece of parchment or even some plastic wrap placed on a kitchen towel.

Let’s get to the process….

Mix rice,rice vinegar, sugar and salt together…sushig3

 

Measure 1/3 cup for each mouse….sushig5

Place one measure on a silpat….sushig6

Flatten into about 4-inch square….sushig7

Place a strip of cucumber, carrot, bell pepper and avocado in the middle..sushig8

Fold the roll into a firm half with the help of the silpat….susdhig9.jpg

Shape into an firm egg with damp hands….sushig10

Shape the body with a pointed end, to make the mouse face…sushig11

Insert a scallion green for the tail…sushig12

And then insert tiny cucumber triangles for ears and place black sesame seeds for eyes and place on a bed of crushed Nori seaweed….featuresushi2.jpg

I acquired more new stuff on this weight loss issue. One particular issue is a good nutrition is very vital when dieting. A big reduction in bad foods, sugary foodstuff, fried foods, sweet foods, beef, and bright flour products can be necessary. Possessing wastes bloodsuckers, and poisons may prevent goals for losing weight. While particular drugs in the short term solve the matter, the horrible side effects usually are not worth it, they usually never present more than a short-term solution. It is just a known indisputable fact that 95 of fad diet plans fail. Many thanks sharing your ideas on this site.
