Instructions Checklist
  • In a small saucepan, cover the rice with 1 1/2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat until the water has been absorbed, about 35 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and fluff with a fork.

  • Meanwhile, in a small glass bowl, microwave the sugar and salt with 2 tablespoons of water at high power for 10 seconds, until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the rice vinegar. Sprinkle the vinegar mixture over the warm rice and stir well.

  • Lay a nori sheet on a work surface. Spread 1/4 cup of the rice on the bottom half and spread 1/2 teaspoon of wasabi paste over the rice. Top with 2 green beans, 1 kale leaf and a halved scallion. Fold the nori over to form a cone or roll; set on a platter and repeat with the remaining nori and fillings.

  • In a bowl, stir the soy sauce and sesame oil with the remaining vinegar. Serve the rolls with the dipping sauce.
