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)
- 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.
- 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.
