Sushi Rice

A quick and easy method to make the perfect sushi rice, ideal for sushi rolls or poké bowls!

Sushi Rice

Preparation Time: 30 minutes


Cooking Time: 20 minutes


Slightly sticky sushi rice with rice wine vinegar, salt and sugar - pair with your favourite source of protein (we love tofu and tempeh for a vegan dish) and your choice of veggies for a healthy, complete lunch or dinner!


  1. Thoroughly rinse the rice with warm water.
  2. Place the rice into a bowl and cover with cold water. Allow to soak for 30 minutes.
  3. After 30 minutes, rinse the rice and place in a pan on the hob with a pinch of salt. Add a pint of water so that the rice is just covered.
  4. Bring the rice to a boil before covering with a lid, reducing the heat to low and allowing to simmer for 15 minutes.
  5. Check the rice after 15 minutes. Use a fork to move the rice away from around the edge of the pan, taking it into the middle of the pan to check the consistency. If the rice is too sticky, remove the lid to allow steam to escape.
  6. Simmer the rice for a further 5 minutes.
  7. Check that the rice is fully cooked - the grains should be soft. If there are any hard grains, top up the pan with a little more water, stir through and allow to simmer for another 5 minutes.
  8. When the rice is cooked, remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool.
  9. In a separate bowl, pour two tablespoons of rice vinegar and add the salt and sugar.
  10. Microwave the mixture for a minute or two until all of the salt and sugar has dissolved.
  11. Pour the mix into the cooled rice and stir through thoroughly.
  12. Serve in your preferred format!


Top Tips...

  • Use greaseproof paper in place of a sushi mat to help make sushi rolls.
  • In place of using a seaweed (nori) for sushi rolls, use cucumber strips. We love to fill ours with carrot, avocado and marinated tofu!
  • Sushi rice also pairs well with a number of dipping sauces: try mixing 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar, 1 tbsp dark soy sauce and 2 tsp of honey. You can also add chopped garlic, fresh ginger or chilli flakes to this!
  • This sushi rice can also be used in Poké bowls.
