Is it any great mystery that the first five letters in delicata are also in delicious? (No.) Has anything ever been ruined by being smothered in butter, salt and pepper? (No… Maybe.) And who knew eating on the cheap could be so delicious? (Taco Bell doesn’t count.)
Earlier this summer I took advantage of my local Asian market and taught myself how to make sushi. Chris and I made a big event of it, laying out the fixins and letting everyone learn how to roll and cut it themselves.
I have always been intimidated by sushi in the kitchen, but after learning how to make it, it seems silly. Making simple vegetarian maki is incredibly easy, though a bit time consuming. It also makes a lot, so it’s not something I really see myself doing on casual dinner nights – best save this one for dinner parties and the like.
I also learned how to make Vietnamese fresh spring rolls, which is beyond easy. I’ll tell you how to make both, starting with the sushi.
Ever since I witnessed my room mate do this with her potatoes and beets, I’ve had a constant stock of root vegetables and tofu in the fridge. This dish has it all: it’s cheap, fast, healthy and delicious! Not to mention the fact that it’s the perfect Fall food. I’m super in love.
