SuSheep Sushi Rolls:
Servings: 2-4 rolls each
- 2 slices 100% whole wheat bread, crusts removed
- 1/4 cup hummus
- 1 medium carrot, cut into 2-inch matchsticks
- 1 stalk celery, cut into 2-inch matchsticks
- 1/4 cucumber, cut into 2-inch matchsticks
- Nori sheets (seaweed) for decoration (optional)
- Soy sauce, for serving
- Pickled ginger and wasabi, for serving (optional)
- Flatten the encrusted slices of bread with a rolling pin to make them easier to roll.
- Spread 2 tablespoons of hummus evenly onto each slice of bread, covering the entire surface.
- Lay the carrot sticks, celery sticks, and cucumber sticks in a row horizontally along the length of the bread slices.
- Now comes the fun part! To create the SuSheep shape, start rolling each slice of bread up tightly, ensuring that the edges meet and form a secure seal. The hummus will act as a glue to hold everything together.
- Once you have rolled both slices of bread into cylindrical rolls, press lightly along the seam to ensure the rolls stay intact.
- Using a sharp knife, carefully cut each roll into four pieces. These pieces will resemble adorable SuSheep sushi rolls!
- Optional: For an added touch, you can use small cutouts of nori sheets to create eyes, a nose, and a mouth on each SuSheep roll, making them look even more like cute little sheep.
- Arrange the SuSheep sushi rolls on a plate and serve with soy sauce for dipping. If you like a bit of heat, you can also serve them with pickled ginger and wasabi on the side.
