  • Thermomix


  • 400 g sushi rice
  • 950 g water
  • sushi rice seasoning to drizzle
  • nori sheets
  • your choice of fillings


  • Place the rice basket on top of the Thermomix and weigh in the sushi rice. Rinse under cold water.
  • Place the water into the Thermomix bowl, insert the rice basket, secure the lid and cook for 20 minutes, Varoma, Speed 4.
  • Very carefully remove the rice basket from the Thermomix (it will be very hot!). Transfer the rice to a large plate. Drizzle over the sushi seasoning and fluff with a fork up and allow to cool slightly.
  • Place a sushi bamboo mat (these can be bought from the Asian section of the supermarket) onto a flat bench.
  • Place a nori sheet on top of the sushi mat with the rough side facing up. Sprinkle it with a tiny amount of water.
  • Spread a thin layer of cooked sushi rice (approximately ½ cup) over the sheet of nori (leaving a 2cm gap at the top of the sheet – to assist with sealing) and press down with the flat side of a spoon.
  • Place your filling in a thin line in the centre. Dampen the uncovered end of the nori sheet with water.
  • Start from the end without the gap and roll tightly together (it takes a bit of practice).
  • Cut into small pieces with a sharp knife and serve.


Remove the sushi rice from the basket once cooked – if you leave the sushi rice to sit in the rice basket after the cooking time, it will become gluggy.
Transfer the rice from the rice basket to a flat plate – this allow the rice to begin to cool and also makes it easier to drizzle with the sushi seasoning and fluff with a fork.
Fluff the rice with a fork – do this gently so as to seperate the rice grains and mix through the seasoning but without squishing the rice.
Place the rolls into the fridge for an hour before cutting – this allows the rolls to set making it easier to cut and serve.
Make the night before – save yourself time and make your sushi the night before. Store in the fridge until needed.
