Sushi Rice:

  • 2 cups white rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt, more or less, to taste

Sriracha Mayo Crab:

  • 12 oz imitation crab meat
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise, or regular
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sriracha, more or less, to taste


  • 1/2 small English cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup julienned carrots
  • 1 large avocado, diced


  • sesame seeds
  • microgreens
  • low-sodium soy sauce


  • Add the rice to a fine mesh strainer and run under cold water for 1-2 minutes, rinsing until the water runs clear.
  • Allow the rice to thoroughly drain and then transfer it to a medium saucepan with 2 cups of water. Place on high heat and bring the rice to a boil.
  • Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and cover with a lid. Simmer 15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to rest, undisturbed and covered, for 15 additional minutes.
  • While you wait, place a small nonstick pan over medium heat. Add the rice vinegar, sugar, and salt. Cook, stirring with a whisk, until the sugar has dissolved completely. Remove from the burner to allow to cool slightly.
  • When the rice is ready, pour the vinegar mixture overtop of the rice and stir to thoroughly mix. Fold until all of vinegar mixture has been absorbed by the rice.
  • To a small mixing bowl, combine the crab meat with the sriracha and mayonnaise. Mix well.
  • To four bowls add the rice and layer with crab mixture, cucumber slices, carrots, diced avocado, sesame seeds and micro greens. Drizzle with soy sauce and enjoy!
