How To Make a Southwestern Style Sushi Burrito

                  A filling burrito-style sushi that is so easy to make.


  I love sushi and have tried so many times to make it, only to fail at it. So the only way I get my sushi craving is by buying at a store but that can get pricey. Well, that has all changed as I have discovered a new simple way to get my sushi craving fulfilled. My new delicious sushi comes in the form of a burrito and has a wonderful spicy southwestern taste. A couple months ago, I was visiting my daughter in Las Vegas and stumble upon this wonderful restaurant, Jaburrito, while walking the strip. They served these wonderful handheld sushi wraps that were filled with not only traditional sushi ingredients but also some spicy southwestern ingredients. One bite and I was hooked. Since we don't have a Jaburritos here in Albuquerque, I knew I had to make my own version of these sushi burritos. My version is so good that even my husband loves them in his lunch. My husband will eat seaweed when it is is a burrito!  Not only are these wraps so delicious but they are healthy too!

Sushi burritos need premium roasted seaweed



  If you are watching your carbs or calories, then you can make this sushi burrito without the tortilla as the nori seaweed will hold the items nicely together. You can also use different grains like a quino brown rice blend that I will substitute for the brown rice. My favorite and I mean favorite seaweed to use in my southwestern sushi burritos is gimMe premium roasted seaweed! These big sheets of seaweed are so good that I eat them plain straight from the package. They are my healthy delicious salty substitute for chips. Did you know that seaweed is a vegetable and has vitamins & minerals? Seaweed is an excellent source of iodine and vitamin K and a very good source of folate, magnesium, iron, and calcium.


 The perfect snack

 With only 1 gram of carbs seaweed is a perfect snack. These big sheets of seaweed are great for sandwich wraps too! GimMe seaweed is organic and NON-GMO! I love that I can buy gimMe seaweed at my local Sprouts store so I do not have to travel across town anymore to the international market when I want to make my Sushi Burritos. I admit that I buy gimMe just to snack on too!


Southwestern Style Sushi Burrito

Makes 4
  Ingredients:

1 cup brown rice
2 cups water
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
4 tortillas
4 sheets roasted seaweed
1 package imitation crab flakes
1 small package shredded carrots
1 avocado, sliced
small jar or can of sliced jalapenos
chipotle mayo


Directions
1. Cook the rice according to package instructions.
2. Pour rice vinegar and sugar into the cooked rice and mix gently. Set aside to cool.
3. Place a tortilla on a plate and lay a sheet of nori seaweed on it.
4. Spread a thin layer of rice all over the seaweed, leaving 1/2 inch space around the edges.
5. Add about 2 tablespoons of the carrots down the middle of the rice and then add three pieces of crab on top of the crab.
6. Place about a tablespoon of the chipotle mayo and 2 avocado slices on the crab. Then top with 2-3 jalapeno slices.
7. Tightly roll everything up like a burrito. Repeat until all sushi burritos are made.



You will have extra ingredients left over. Just place them in the fridge and use them to make more delicious sushi burritos. You can also just make one sushi burrito at a time. My husband loves to pack my sushi burritos in his lunch. You must check out my recipe for spaghetti squash spring rolls for another healthy lunch idea that is easy to pack. This recipe is great for using up the extra shredded carrots.
