    This was fantastic! So tasty! The whole family loved it. We’ll definitely be making this again.

    Great recipe. The second time I used 1/3 of the Soy/ Rice Vinegar mixture to fold into the protein mix. To me, the nori and crab/ imitation crab have plenty of salt. I’m just weird. Also placed the rice patties over chopped Romaine lettuce and followed the recipe. This is a new mid week classic and meal prep easy. Thanks!

    I bought some imitation crab meat on clearance and wasn't sure what to do with it. This was perfect. I love California rolls and already had most of the ingredients. I used brown 90second rice and just put the crab meat, avocado, cucumber and sirarcha mayo on it. Skipped everything else because I was lazy. It was a great light and yummy lunch.

    delicious! a little pricey because I didn't have the sauces but now that I do I'll cook it more often!

    Delicious! The smile on my sushi-loving adult son's face told it all! The sushi rice turned out great & the other ingredients perfectly replicated a California roll. I don't care for spice on my sushi so just barely put a bit of siracha in the mayo (veganaise)-perfect. I'll be making this alot.

    Yum! Although I would of loved more spice to my sushi bowl. Next time I’ll add wasabi :)

    Delicious and easy. Perfect for lunch prep. I've also made this with cauliflower rice for a lower carb option.

    I didn't follow the recipe exactly but I borrowed the concept and everyone really liked my sushi bowl. It is a great alternative compared to expensive take out. I recommend this to anyone who has a craving for California rolls.
