Sushi rice
  • 6
    Rinse 2 cups sushi rice until water runs clear. Drain for 10 minutes. Cook with 2¼ cups water in a medium saucepan. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes until tunnels appear in rice. Set aside, covered, for 10 minutes. Spread on a tray. Drizzle with 1/3 cup sushi seasoning. (Cook brown rice for 30-35 minutes.)
