Kiddie sushi-style rolls

on April 16, 2009

I love cookbooks. Plain and simple. Buying them, renting them from the library- it doesn’t matter. I just like recipes. My sister asked me awhile back if I had any good recommendations on toddler cookbooks. I gave her the name of a couple that I had and looked on Amazon for some more. I came across one that I wanted to check out.

I’m a try before you buy kind of gal so I requested it from the library. A month or so later (apparently, a lot of people wanted to peruse it) I got to go through it. There were tons of recipes in there! I think I will have to buy Annabel Karmel’s book. I did note some recipes that I HAD to try though.

Yesterday we tried our first recipe. I think it went over pretty well.

Kiddie sushi-style rolls

* Makes one portion

2 slices white bread, crusts removed
half a 6-ounce can tuna (she said “in oil”, I used “in water”) drained
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 1/2 tablespoons ketchup (I omitted this)
2 drops Tabasco sauce-or to taste (I omitted this as well)
2 inch piece of cucumber, cut into strips
2 inch piece of carrot, peeled and coarsely grated

  • Using a rolling pin, flatten the bread until it is about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Mix the tuna together with 1 tablespoon mayonnaise, the ketchup and the Tabasco (if using).
  • Spread the remaining mayonnaise over the bread.
  • Spread the tuna in a line about 1/2 inch from one edge of each slice.
  • Arrange the cucumber strips on one side of the tuna and grated carrot on the other side.
  • Roll up from the filled end and press down to seal.
  • Trim the ends to neaten using a sharp knife, then cut into three little rolls.
