  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 cup sushi cooked rice
  • 1/4 firm avocado sliced
  • 1/4 red bell pepper sliced
  • 1/4 orange bell pepper sliced
  • Optional: you can also try adding julienne cut carrots, red cabbage, sprouts, or scallions

Spicy Mayo

  • 1 Tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp sriracha


  • Rice: Cook rice by instructions on package. When finished, do not stir rice and allow it to cool. This will make for a stickier to hold everything together.
  • Deseed: Cut each cucumber in half and remove seeds with either a small spoon or knife to create a long, hollow tube (see pictures).
  • Stuff: Spoon in a small amount of rice, then compress towards one side of the tube. Gently insert a slice of avocado and a few slices of pepper, then add more rice to fill gaps, compressing and adding more rice until packed full.
  • Slice: With a sharp knife, slice cucumber into 1/2 inch thick pieces. If you start to notice the filling is loose as you cut, stuff in more rice and peppers where needed.
  • Serve: Serve with soy sauce or spicy mayo*. 


  • *To make spicy mayo, mix 1 Tbsp mayo and 1/2 tsp sriracha.
