Makes 4 rolls

You wonder why elephants are so fat and cute? Well, now you know. Use our sushi tips to ensure perfect rolls.


For the rice
1 cup sushi rice made with 1 1/4 cup H20, prepared according to package directions
About 2 Tablespoons Rice vinegar (do not use regular or any other kind!)
1 teaspoon sugar

For the filling
1/4 cup Roasted salted peanuts (the big oily kind are best)
1/2 avocado, peeled, seeded, sliced into long pieces

4 sheets nori*

For the rice
Prepare rice according to package instructions. It should be something like 1 1/4 cup H20 to 1 cup rice. Cook till rice is tender but firm, even a little dry.

Empty hot rice into a large glass bowl. Sprinkle with about rice vinegar and 1 sugar. Fold rice gently with a large spoon or rice paddle. Rice should be moist and have a mild vinegar flavor. Cover with plastic wrap. When rice is slightly warmer than room temperature it’s ready to work with.

For the filling
Layer peanuts and avocado, and roll, young soldier, roll!

*If you like, use a pair of tongs to roast the nori sheets over the oven flame for 2-3 seconds.
