This mock "sushi" recipe calls for sandwich ingredients such as deli meat, cheese, and pickles. By skipping the raw fish and keeping the fun sushi shape, you can make a fun and different lunch for your kids (and one they'll actually eat!).
Yield: 1 to 2 servings
2 slices whole grain white bread
1 teaspoon low-fat ranch dressing
2 slices ham
2 slices baby Swiss cheese
Cheese, cut into 2-inch by ¼-inch strips
1 tablespoon shredded carrot
2 sweet baby pickles
1. Trim crust from bread. Place both pieces of bread side-by-side on a work surface, with one slice overlapping the other. Press bread slices where they overlap to fuse together. Spread bread with ranch dressing.
2. Layer bread with ham, Swiss, and carrots.
3. Place two pickles horizontally and end-to-end at bread edge closest to you. Roll bread from bottom up to make tight cigar-shaped roll.
4. Cut roll into sushi-sized pieces approximately 1 inch in length.
