Sadly, this blog is a bit sleepier than I'd like these days. Pop over here if you'd like to know why.

Fruit Sushi

Last weekend I was browsing through the latest Vegetarian Times on a quick weekend trip down to Seattle. Even though I was mesmerized by all the recipes, "Whoa... now look at this one!" I wasn't in the mood to drop $5 on a magazine, when I have unexplored cookbooks at home. So when I came to a recipe I couldn't live without I went down the tacky road. After several whines of "I wish I had a photocopier under my shirt" I took out a pen and paper and just started writing. It turns out I didn't need to write it down, because I couldn't stop thinking about it. All the thinking led to some changes and the creation of Fruit Sushi. (Frushi?)

I think the results were quite nice.

Fruit Sushi

What you need:
Banana, mango, vanilla soy yogurt, berries, y-shaped peeler

What you do:
slice banana in 1" pieces
peel long thin strips of mango
wrap mango around banana with the mango slightly taller
fill in the extra mango height with yogurt
top with a berry

Note: Slice all the mango as quickly as possible. If you wait too long, (like make a few then get ready to go to a party), by the time you begin again the mango will be difficult to slice.

i always copy recipes out of magazines that don't belong with me. i think they make the food taste that much better. i remember eating these when you brought them to forrest's house. delicious.
