"Delicious and surprisingly simple to make. Sushi is expensive to buy at the supermarket, so making your own will save you tons of money. My husband is a sushi freak! I make this for him all the time."

  1. Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Stir in rice vinegar and salt. Allow to cool completely.
  2. Lay out seaweed sheets. Moisten hands with water, then spread the rice evenly on each sheet, leaving a 1/2 inch gap along one edge, lengthwise. Arrange strips of cucumber, imitation crabmeat, and cream cheese in a straight line along the side opposite of the gap. Roll the sushi from the toppings to the exposed end of the the seaweed sheet.
  3. Using a sharp wet knife, slice each roll into 5 or 6 pieces. Serve with minced ginger on the side.

These are quick and easy to make, and great for school. Take it easy on the rice and fillings though (I went a little nuts on the first one and it was huge... but delicious). I also substituted ...

I made this exactly as said and it turn out great. Even my mother, who has told me over and over that she can't stand crab, absolutely loved it. I made it two days in a row because she came back...

The dish was exactly as described easy to make and taste great.

perfect! & affordable. I really didn't think i'd be able to do it - i thought it'd be really hard... it's NOT! & tastes great!

This was so easy to do and the rolls were delish! I made these for my daughter-in-law birthday meal! She never had sushi so it was a safe roll to make for her. She loved it!
