So Miss M is a doughnut fiend. Along with being a waffle, a three times a week pancake monster and let’s make cupcakes everyday too person. I don’t blame her really as I love doughnuts too so we indulge together. Clearly, this is more about being a good mum than anything else. Clearly.
Freddy, on the other hand, is a rice addict. Sometimes I wonder if he is not more African than me in that need of his to eat some form of rice a couple of times a week. Again, me being the supportive partner and all that means I join him.
Sitting and thinking about what to make for Easter – something fun, tasty, healthier, creative and getting the whole family cooking together got me thinking how about to combine rice and doughnuts – and the answer was vegetable sushi doughnuts.
Now peeps imagine what the idea of Vegetable Sushi Doughnuts was like in food blogger land. I was all doing a little food dance in the I might have come up with a teeny little thing called a new to food dish. Oh the excitement, which lasted exactly 5 mins when I did a google and Instagram search. I was only a year or so too late for these. Ah well.
How To Make Sushi Doughnuts
The vegetable sushi donuts are pretty easy to make with only 5 ingredients.
Step 1. Cook the sushi rice and steam the veggies.
Step 2. Stir in the seasoning and the rest of the ingredients, mix it all together and stuff this mix into a donut pan.
Step 3. Simply turn the pan upside down and you are good to go.
Oh the fun that both the real kiddoes and the grown-up kids have making these. You can also make a couple of blueberry ones, with blueberry syrup to satisfy the sweet tooth too.
And bluberry sushi donuts.
You guys should definitely pop into your nearest Iceland Foods store and check out their extensive range of frozen veggies and fruit (more than enough for your recommended 10 portions of fruit and veggie a day), meats and much more.
