Philadelphia Bowls

My daughter loves Philadelphia rolls, salmon, cream cheese, cucumbers, what's not to love. I decided to make my version of a Philadelphia roll in a bowl for her. You can call it lazy sushi.

Philadelphia Bowl

Sushi rice 
1 Cup of uncooked short grain sushi rice
1 and 1/2  Cups water
2 tbs. Rice vinegar
2 tbs. Sugar
1 tsp. Salt

One cook of uncooked rice should make about 2 cups cooked. Put the uncooked rice in a pot along with the water and turn heat to high. Once it begins to boil turn down the heat to low and cover pot. Set your timer for 20 minutes. Once the 20 minutes is up turn heat off but keep rice covered for another 10 minutes. In the meantime you can put the remaining ingredients in a small sauce pan and heat until the sugar is dissolved stirring the whole time. Empty your cooked rice into a wooden bowl which will absorb any excess moisture from your rice. I poured mine onto a wooden cutting board. Put the liquid mixture onto your rice and with a wooden spoon gentle mix it into the rice. You can fan the rice while you are doing this to get it to cool off or you can let your rice sit out until it is room temperature.

Sliced cold smoked salmon
Sliced cucumbers
Diced Cream cheese
Diced avocado
Sliced green onions
Nori strips
Teriyaki sauce ( I used store bought)

Spicy Mayo
Chili garlic sauce

Mix these two ingredients in a bowl to your desired taste.

Put some rice in a bowl and top with remaining ingredients as much as you like. I served mine over mixed greens instead of rice for a refreshing Philadelphia salad.
