MotherForkers: Sushi (Crab Veggie Roll and Sweet Potato Roll)

May 27, 2022

For todays cooking assignment our group made sushi! We shopped at Fresh Market and bought a couple ingredients. With $30.00 we bought imitation crab, seaweed wraps, cream cheese, rice, cucumber, avocado, rice vinegar, and sweet potatoes. We began to prep for our meal by laying out all of the ingredients. Sushi doesn’t involve as much cooking as other dishes so laying out all of the ingredients helped us to get more organized. We cut up all the the vegetables, we cut up the cucumber into strips, the sweat potato into chunks, and we chopped up the carrots. We then simultaneously cooked the rice for about 10 minutes while we were chopping up the vegetables and the crab. We also made a sauce for the sweet potato sushi. We used soy sauce, water, sugar, honey, and maple syrup, we add these ingredients into the boiling pot of water and stirred until the sauce thickened and brought it to a simmer. We also cooked the sweet potato sushi for a little in the pan.


1 Large Sweet Potato 

1 1/2 cups of jasmine rice 

1 Cucumber

1 Bag of baby carrots 

1 Avocado 

1 Bag of Imitation Crab

1 Block of Cream Cheese 

1 Bag of Seaweed Wraps 


2 Tablespoons of sugar

2 Tablespoons of Water

1 Tablespoon of Honey

1 Tablespoon of Maple syrup

1 Teaspoon of Soy Sauce

How to Make:

1.) First we cut up all the vegetables to put into the sushi and mashed the sweet potato

2.) Then we boiled the rice in the pot

3.) We then put the rice on the seaweed wrap with the chopped up vegetables. Rolled up the rice and veggies in the seaweed wrap forming a tube and then cutting them into balls of sushi.


Taste: 6/10 

The sushi tasted good, it was our first time making sushi and I think if we had different rice it would have tasted a little better but it wasn’t bad but not our favorite dish.

Consistency: 7/10 The sushi was well secured in the seaweed and the veggies were crunchy and fresh. The sweet potato was softer and we cooked it in the pot a little bit to give it more texture and crunch. Sushi is kind of an acquired taste and has a weird texture so its not for everybody. 

Smell: 5/10 

The sauce smelled amazing but the sushi itself didn’t smell as good. The imatation crab smelled horrible in all honesty but the rest of the sushi smelled fine. 

Visual Appeal: 9/10

The sushi looked really great. The rolls were bigger than we anticipated but we are not complaining.

Creativity: 10/10 

Sushi isn’t obscure but it was definitely a new and creative idea that I never really thought to make. It’s just something I always buy from restaurants so it’s really cool to make it ourselves.
