Companion recipe: Sushi Rice


Heat oil in heavy medium saute pan over high heat. Add mushrooms; saute until mushrooms are soft and brown, about 5 minutes. Add green onions and saute 10 seconds longer. Transfer mixture to small bowl. Stir in soy sauce and pepper. Cool to room temperature.

Place nori shiny-side down on bamboo sushi mat. Using rice paddle, spread 3/4 cup Sushi Rice over nori forming 1/4-inch thick layer and leaving 1/2-inch border on long sides. Arrange 1/5 mushroom mixture horizontally down center of rice.

Starting with long edge nearest you and using bamboo mat as aid, roll rice-coated nori around filling jelly-roll style. Using gentle pressing motion, compress roll forming round or square roll. Remove mat. Using very sharp knife, cut roll crosswise in half. Cut each half into 4 pieces, forming 8 pieces total. Repeat with remaining nori, rice and mushroom mixture.

Serve sushi with accompaniments.
