sushi salad

i made this up for myself tonight...Katie still doesn't have much of an appetite since the first round of chemo, though she did admit it smelled good....

Sushi Salad

1 c uncooked brown rice

2 c water

1 carrot, cut into matchsticks

1/2 a cucumber, cut into matchsticks or small slices

2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

1 sheet nori, cut into 1/2 inch squares

2/3 c extra firm tofu cubes

1/4 rice vinegar

4 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp soy sauce or tamari

Bring water to a boil, add rice and cook, covered, over medium heat for 30-35 minutes or until cooked. In the meantime, in a large bowl, combine the vinegar, sugar and soy sauce. Whisk until sugar is dissolved then add the vegetables (except seeds and nori) and tofu. Stir to coat and set aside. When rice is cooked, add to bowl with the veggies and sauce. Add nori and sesame seeds. Stir to blend and then cover and let cool in the fridge for a few hours, stirring once in awhile to redistribute the sauce. Serve cold.
