Get the family involved making sushi rolls for dinner and enjoy “Monsters Inc” style! Suitable also for lunch boxes or midday snacks using different fillings.
1. Rinse rice, place in a saucepan with x 1.5 amount of water (600ml). Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 20 minutes, or until rice is tender and water absorbed.

2. Cut carrot, cucumber, avocado and capsicum into thin sticks. Once rice is cooked, place into a large shallow dish or bowl. Fluff with a fork, stir through 100ml sushi seasoning. Allow to cool enough to handle.

3. Rub chicken schnitzels with 1 tbsp sesame oil and 1 tbsp soy sauce. Heat a frypan over high heat, cook schnitzels (in batches) for 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Set aside on a chopping board and slice into strips once slightly cooled.

4. Lay 1 nori sheet, shiny-side down, across bamboo mat (see notes). Wet fingers, spread a thin layer of rice across sheet, leaving a strip on the far side uncovered. Lay chicken and vegetables across rice, from one side to the other.

5. Starting with the edge closest to you, pick up the mat and roll forward. Press gently, wrap nori around rice and filling. Repeat with remaining rolls, cut into 3cm slices.

6. Serve sushi rolls with soy sauce for dipping and any leftovers served on the side with sprouts.
