Quinoa Sushi

This is low fat,  low sugar,  gluten free and can be vegetarian.  What more could you ask?Huh??   Well , I suppose low calorie. !!!!.  Which it is.
200 g of uncooked Quinoa will provide 3 cups of cooked Quinoa.  That is 1/2 a cup for each full sushi roll,  which I the cut into 3 .
You can just see the beautiful Japanese platter, on which I am serving the  sushi.  This was a gift. From my SS.

I will give basic instructions,  as you can fill the sushi,  with whatever you like. I made 1/2 with smoked salmon and 1/2 vegetarian.
You will need 6 nori sheets.

Place 200g of Quinoa into TMX steamer basket and pour 1 litre of water over the grains.  Cook 17 mins./ 100 / speed 3.
When cooked,  drain well and tip into a bowl and when cooled a little,  add 1 Tablespoon of Rice wine Vinegar that has 1 teaspoon of caster sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of salt dissolved in it.

Allow to cool and then proceed with making the sushi in the usual manner. MAKE SURE YOU ROLL THE SUSHI FIRMLY , as it doesn't have the same sticking quality as rice.

Great idea to use quinoa. I love the stuff, however my family are a little hesitant. I am looking for more quinoa recipes
