California Roll in a Bowl

The Man and I love sushi, but it can be a bit expensive to go out for it everytime I have a craving for it.  And while I do know how to make homemade sushi rolls, it can be a pain.  So I skipped the hassle and just tossed all the ingredients in a bowl.  The sauce could be made by hand if you’d like to, but it’s much easier to use a food processor.  You may like to adjust the amount of wasabi paste in the recipe, depending on how hot you’d like it.  This was a good amount for us, it gave flavor without being too hot for me (I’m not a big fan of wasabi most of the time).

2 cups cooked rice
1/3 cup lite soy sauce
1 teaspoon wasabi
1 oz fat free cream cheese, softened
1 avocado, peeled and pitted
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup water
8 oz. Fake Crab Meat
1 Cucumber
5 Sheets of Nori (Roasted Seaweed), Cut or Crumbled into Small Pieces

Cook the rice according to the package.
Using a food processer, blend the soy sauce, cream cheese, avocado, ginger, garlic powder, onion powder, and water.
Peel and dice the cucumber and dice the fake crab. Coat with the soy sauce mixture. Mix into the rice.
Let it chill in the fridge for about an hour.
Top with a sheet and crumbled nori, if desired.
