Veggie Booty Maki

Posting might be a little light around here this week. Or late. My wife's gone to a conference in LA, so I'm soloing with the kid. Since we just got back in town, too, we haven't been to the store, so lunch was a bit of a mystery. Until I stumbled onto the greatest meal ever: Veggie Booty Maki.

Rice in the rice cooker. No rice vinegar, unfortunately, but we did have reasonably fresh seaweed. Cheese, hummus, lettuce, yogurt; there was literally nothing to put in the roll, though, and I didn't want to encourage the kid's recent preference for empty sushi rolls [i.e., cucumber rolls with the cucumbers taken out and occasionally eaten separately.]

So just on principle, I thought of sprinkling some Veggie Booty in before rolling it up. Holy crap, the kid ate the entire thing, almost as big as a Burrito Supreme. Veggie Booty doesn't stay crunchy, of course, but it does add a nice flavor.

Our 3-cup Zojirushi rice cooker is perfect for the family, if not for the whole clan, $129 [amazon]


Man, these kids today have it good... I didn't taste nori until I was at least 18, unless you count the seaweed and rice crackers my dad used to buy at the Marks & Spencer in the mall.

I find wrapping stuff in nori is a great way to get a kid to eat anything...

Aw man, genius.

This makes me also realize that it has been far too long since I attempted maki with the kiddos.

thanks for the reminder!
