In collaboration with Yutaka.
Have you ever made sushi before? I have a confession, until we set up the video camera to film this little fun video below, neither had we. This is new, uncharted territory for us, as a family, and I have to say I am rather excited about the whole thing!
Sushi isn’t just raw fish, like we usually associate when we hear the word. It is sweet rice and can be paired with any protein, vegetable or even fruit and it can be a fun, simple way to get the kids involved in making and eating healthy nutritious food.
After doing a little research online I prepared the ingredients needed for a simple smoked salmon and avocado sushi, switched the video camera on and let my husband and children have at.
Didn’t they do a great job! I was there, in the background, talking them through the process, but they did all the hard work of assembling and rolling themselves.
Leading UK-based Japanese food company Yutaka have all the ingredients, without all the additives, to make authentic and healthy sushi at home. Their Yutaka Sushi Sushi Kit for Two (RRP £7.98) provides everything to you need to create some amazing sushi rolls – boil in the bag sushi rice, sushi seasoning, nori sheets, a rolling mat, sushi ginger, soy sauce and wasabi paste. You just need to add a few fresh ingredients like smoked salmon, avocado or anything else you fancy. You can find these kits in most leading supermarkets. Alternatively, enter the giveaway below to win one!
Children (I know mine do!) love the fact they can get all messy whilst making sushi and the health benefits of the ingredients are incredible. A recent report found the Japanese diet seems to be one of the primary reasons they boast the longest lifespan in the world*.
Nori (seaweed, which is used to wrap the rolls) is abundant in health benefits and is considered an ancient superfood. As well as being really tasty, it provides loads of essential nutrients, is packed with dietary fibre, improves bone and dental health, is high in iron and rich in protein. And that’s just for starters. Wasabi, ginger and soy sauce have all been found to have a variety of benefits too.
The beauty of Yutaka’s ingredients is that they’re all made in the traditional way, which means they feature a lot less additives than other brands on the market.
