Cucumber Sushi Ingredients

All the ingredients for this healthy toddler recipe are fresh and easy to find. Below are the main ingredients for this easy sushi roll for kids.

How to make cucumber sushi rolls

This healthy toddler recipe is actually much easier than it may look. The most time-consuming part of this recipe is the one hour it takes to bake and cool the carrot. You can cook the carrot a day ahead if you’d like so that you and your kiddos can go straight to the fun part!

Once the carrot is completely cooled, thinly slice the carrot, then add it to a bowl along with the apple cider vinegar and smoked paprika. Stir and leave aside to soak while you season the mascarpone cheese.

Now it’s time to put it all together! Lay out a thin layer of cucumber and spread a layer of cheese. Finally, add a slice of seasoned carrot and avocado then roll it up!
