Quick Fix | Sushi Rice 
This is a very basic recipe for sushi rice ... use it for nigiri sushi, maki (rolled) sushi, or eat it in a bowl with some veggies sprinkled on top. 

ingredients
2 c. rice
2 c. water
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
time 20-30 min
serves 3-4


1. Cook the rice in a rice cooker, adding water to the 2 cup mark. Alternatively, add rice and water to a pot; bring to a boil on the stove; cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for 20 minutes.
2. Let cooked rice cool. To help it cool faster, break it up and toss it around with a rice paddle.
3. Heat the vinegar on medium and stir in the sugar and salt. Warning: keep you nose away from the pot the vinegar fumes will sting if you inhale.
4. Gradually spoon vinegar mixture into rice, stirring well to coat the rice. Taste,  and add a few more sprinkles of salt if necessary. Let the seasoned rice cool.
