Sushi Gets Silly
Serious Eats presents a simple yet slightly awe-inspiring idea, at least for those of us with kids: peanut butter sushi
. Granted that the concept (rolled-up bread containing peanut butter and fillings and toppings such as veggies, jam, mini-marshmallows, or Rice Krispies) is about as far from cuts of ocean-fresh fish laid reverently on vinegared rice as a hot dog is from a banana, but sushi's visual impact and finger-friendly size is nicely preserved by the concept.
The basic templates provided by the site seem like enough to get a would-be peanut butter sushi chef rolling:
"Stephanie prepared four different maki rolls using Peanut Butter and Co. peanut butter: Dark Chocolate Dreams with whipped cream cheese and crispy rice, Smooth Operator with banana and honey, Cinnamon Raisin Swirl with celery, and Crunch Time with apples and Seriously Strawberry jam."
And the concept also suggests that other variants of flattened and rolled bread might work out. Smørrebrød sushi, anyone?
