Since Big Hero 6 was set in San Fransokyo, I thought this would be the perfect movie inspired dish! Every year Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival begins and pictures start popping up with Frushi, my mouth waters! Since I haven’t been able to travel to the festival, I decided to make my own! I used the same fruit, but I added coconut milk to sweeten the rice, instead of the typical sushi rice I have found on other recipes. A recipe the whole family will enjoy! The rolls are deceptively filling, you may want to use them as the main course.
Ingredients1 ½ cups sushi rice
2 cups water
1 tsp salt
3 Tbsp sugar
1/2 cup crème of coconut
1 ½ tsp vanilla
1 pint of Strawberries, cut into quarters
1 Pineapple, cut into ¼ inch strips
1 Cantaloupe, cut into ¼ inch strips
6 Pink Sushi Wrappers (Pink Sushi Wrappers)
DirectionsAdd water, rice, salt, and sugar to the medium size saucepan. Bring quickly to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cover the pot and DON’T touch it until the end. Cook for 15 minutes before removing the pot from the heat but keep the lid CLOSED. Let rice rest for 10 min and then remove the cover. Gently, stir in crème of coconut and vanilla and let cool to room temp.
Once rice has cooled, place one sushi wrap on plastic wrap. Using a large spatula, spread rice on the sushi wrap, leaving 1 inch at the end to seal it. Layer fruit on rice and roll it up tightly. Moisten wrapper to seal. Slice with sharp knife into ½ inch pieces. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Rolling the wraps might be tricky at first, but just takes a little practice!
Garnish and serve with raspberry sauce, whipped cream and toasted coconut.
