The great thing about sushi is that it is so versatile. It is like a sandwich, you can put any filling you like and it still taste fabulous. In the traditional Sushi Roll, we put ingredients such as kanpyo(dried gourd), dried shitake mushrooms, koyadofu(freeze dried tofu), and sakura denbu (seasoned and dried fish). As I am not a great fan of those traditional fillings which also take time to dehydrate and cook, I must confess I have never used them for my sushi rolls.
Instead, my sushi rolls usually have salmon, avocado, tuna, cucumber, crab sticks and egg omelet in it . If I would make them for my children the filling might be tuna and mayonnaise or ham and cheese. You can also put barbecued beef or strips of roast beef in it as well.
Today, I've made a sushi roll with vegetarian filling (well almost as I don't think the crab sticks are vegetarian) They contain red bell peppers, shiso leaves, cucumber, carrots, and egg omelet. They taste just as good!
