Reader recipe: riceless sushi

This is cool!  A reader contacted me on my Facebook page because she was excited to share her latest creation: riceless sushi.  She used quinoa instead of the rice and made sushi rolls with nori and other goodies.  (As you may know, when I go out for sushi I ask for hand rolls made without rice.  I've never tried making it at home, though.)  I didn't want to edit her email since I thought it was perfect as is!  :)

Hi Kishari,
I really feel that sharing ideas is the only way to get through. I just keep feeling crappy even though I eliminate all these foods, then I find out something else and eliminate that and so on and so on. So anything I can do to help anyone else I will do! 
Anyways, the recipe for the quinoa is 1 cup quinoa to 2 cups chicken broth, but water can be used. I put everything in a pot, bring to a boil with lid on then when its boiling I turned it down to simmer, still with the lid on, and then cook until all the water is evaporated. It took about 20 minutes, I wanted the quinoa really dry so it would stick to the nori. I put it in the fridge overnight because I didn't want the seaweed to get mushy, it was a bit too dry in the morning so I through it in the microwave for a min and then scooped out the quinoa and put it on the seaweed just like you would rice.
thanks for listening, Anna G :)
Note: one is avocado and smoked salmon, the other is avocado and crab.

I love this!  If you'd like to share your creations, please contact me on Facebook or email me at foodallergyqueen@gmail.com.  I'll try to figure out how to archive these so that they're easily accessible.
