Deconstructed Sushi in a Jar

I saw this freaking cool recipe floating around Pinterest the other day. It was sushi in a jar!  "Wuhhh? That sounds gross" you may think. Hey, don't knock it till you try it! The awesome idea came from Krista and Jess, the masterminds behind a large plethora of jar lunches! I am a huge fan of sushi, so this immediately caught my attention. 2011_nissan_gt_r_instrumentcluster   According to their site, here is the actual recipe: deconstructed sushi in a jar ingredients per wide mouth pint jar: 3/4 cup cooked short grain brown rice 1 tablespoon rice vinegar* 1 teaspoon sugar 1-2 teaspoons soy sauce 1 sheet nori, cut into 1″ X 1/4″ pieces 1/4 cup shredded carrot 1/4 cup cucumber matchsticks 1/2 an avocado, diced lime juice pickled ginger, to taste wasabi paste, to taste Heat the vinegar and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. While your brown rice is still warm, pour the vinegar-sugar mixture and soy sauce over it and toss to combine. Let cool to room temperature. Adding the soy sauce to the rice saves you from having to lug soy sauce to school or work. *If you use seasoned rice vinegar, omit the sugar and heat. Once your ingredients are ready, simply add one layer at a time and use a spoon to level and pat down each layer. If you smudge the sides of the jar, wipe the inside with a dry cloth. I used half the sheet of nori on the bottom and half on top, and finished with ginger and wasabi to taste. 2013-nissan-gt-r-premium_100383855_l       Not a fan of jarred meals?
