Mango Sushi Roll

Sushi is our favorite take-out to order and although it's fun to not be responsible for making dinner, we've found that making sushi at home is just as easy and gives us the chance to invent interesting creations. Mango seems to be a pretty standard sushi ingredient, at least at the places we order from. Typically it's paired with avocado, but it can stand on it's own as well.

A Vegetarian & Cooking! original.

-3/4 cup, dry sushi rice
-2 sheets of nori
-1/2 mango
-salt, to taste
-pepper, to taste
-chili powder, to taste 

Cook the sushi rice according to package directions, once cooked, season with salt, pepper, and chili powder. 

Lay a nori wrap flat on your sushi mat and spread 1/2 cup of rice  over about two-thirds of the surface, you'll want to spread the rice to the side edges and to the edges closest to you. Add about mango slices all the way down the center. 

Take the sushi mat and lift the nori and rice closest to you up and over the filing. Squeeze the mat to help distribute the ingredients evenly. Remove the mat and wet the end of the nori on which there is no rice, now finish rolling the sushi roll onto that piece of nori. I used this video from Kikoman to help me understand what I was doing since I'm more of a visual person, check it out to see a visual of what you're doing.
Repeat the above process with the remaining ingredients, then slice and serve.
