Ingredients:

  • 2 cups white rice, cooked
  • 2 cups brown rice, cooked
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • ¼ cup fat free cream cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped chives
  • 4 sushi nori
  • 4 oz. smoked salmon
  • ¼ cup julienne carrots
  • Sprinkle of everything bagel seasoning

Directions:

  1. Mix the brown and white rice together. Stir in the vinegar. Set aside and let cool to room temperature.
  2. In a bowl, mix together cream cheese and chopped chives.
  3. Lay a piece of plastic wrap on the counter (or plastic wrapped bamboo mat). Place one piece of nori on the plastic, shiny side facing down.
  4. Place 1 cup of rice on top of the nori and spread evenly, leaving about 1 inch of nori on the edge farthest away from you.
  5. In the center of the nori, layer 1 oz. of salmon, 1 tablespoon of cream cheese and 1 tablespoon of carrots. Use the entire length of the sheet.
  6. Lightly wet the strip of nori that is exposed (to help seal).
  7. Gently lift the plastic wrap underneath the nori and roll it over the middle ingredients. Press and shape the ingredients into a tight log.
  8. Wet a sharp knife and cut about 1 ½ to 2 inch thick slices. This will give you about 6-8 slices.
  9. Sprinkle everything bagel seasoning on each slice.
  10. Repeat with remaining nori.
