Five Minute Photo Shoot: Quinoa Sushi

Last night’s dinner: maki filled with Gulf shrimp, avocado, water chestnut, green onion, and Serrano pepper.  Because, you know, Wednesday.

Also, did you know you can make sushi with quinoa instead of rice?  Cook some quinoa, purée half, mix it all together, and voilà!, sticky quinoa.  Thanks, Heston Blumenthal!  I used a combo of red and white quinoa, and left it unseasoned.  Fabulous.

note to self: work on sushi-rolling skills

This post is also a little experiment; I started using Dropbox, which makes it way easier to post photos from my phone.  The top picture is from my phone, the bottom two are from my proper camera.  That is all.

    Wow that looks delicious! Thanks for the great idea of using quinoa in sushi. I’ll have to try that sometime.

    “Heston Blumenthal at home” rocks! I haven’t tried this recipe yet, but I can’t get enough from this book. You definetely have to try the beetroot risotto and accompany it with your foolproof, perfect-every time method for salmon. And if you can’t get your hands on beetroot juice, bake some diced beetroot and puree it in a blender. Your photos are gorgeous as always!
