If you know me at all, you know I love sushi. That salty-fishy-yumminess is music to my tongue and I can’t get enough of it. So of course, I passed this adoration down to my eager son not long ago, taking him to sushi restos in Toronto and letting him pick whatever vegetarian options he wanted.
Turns out he’s a huge fan of the avocado/cucumber rolls, the miso soup and the veggie tempura. Dipping each piece of sushi in a small bowl of soy sauce and attempting to eat with those slippery, flingable chopsticks is a fun evening for him. I can’t say I blame him. Like I said, I love it.
Even if you leave out the cooked fish and opt for wholly vegetarian sushi at home, I recommend trying this out with your kids. It shows them how a certain type of food is made, gives them an appreciation for the making of it and teaches them about the different ingredients and flavours. All in all, very educational…and truly a delicious afternoon.
