Simple Sushi Rice


  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Splenda® sweetener (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups hot cooked medium white rice (or medium brown rice)


  1. Add vinegar, sugar, Splenda® (if desired), and salt to a 2-cup measure and stir to blend. Heat in a microwave for 20 seconds or so and then let cool.
  2. Drizzle vinegar mixture slowly over hot, cooked rice in an 8-cup measure or medium bowl, stirring and blending in as you go. After incorporating the last bit of vinegar, the rice should stick together and take a shape more easily.

About 4 cups of sticky rice (1/2 cup per serving)
