Sushi burritos and Minted products

Burritos de sushi

This post is made in collaboration with Minted, a company that I couldn’t love more. I love everything they have in store and how they work. Minted is a window for designers and artists from around the world to exhibit and sell their work. Their work comes in the form of labels, decoration for the house and any stationery. This year, they are launching some amazing custom labels and personalized journals.

When I heard that labels can be used in any type of material: fabric, plastic, stainless steel, etc. I fell over feet. Can you imagine  all your kid’s stuff  marked with a beautiful label? A label that is machine wash safe?

Wow, right? ?????

I ordered for my girls a set of labels and a journal for each of them. My girls couldn’t be more different, one likes more pastel colors, more girly stuff and she is very sweet. My oldest is more on the practical side and loves more simple and clean designs. They are so different  even physically, one is blonde, the other brunette, one falls in the petite body frame and the other in the super tall and lean type.

It was amazing working with Minted as their collection of designs is so wide that they have a special thing for everyone.

As soon as the labels arrived, I started labeling everything. Especially things they take in their school lunch boxes. I made sure that their water bottles were properly marked, their food containers, etc. From there I went sure all sweatshirts and hoodies and anything they take to school is marked. And the labels worked perfectly well on any surface. ??

Burritos de sushi

To make sushi burritos, you do not need any sushi mat, or any experience or anything. If you know how to make a burrito, you will know how to make a sushi burrito. The only trick is to  wrap them in a baking paper, parchment paper or other paper to keep the shape, if not, they will  fall apart.

These sushi burritos can be made with any vegetables you have around and regular rice, it doesn’t matter if you do not use the special one for sushi. I always use brown rice and when I cook it, I always try to cook more, so it would be ready when I need it.

These sushi burritos are made in a blink of an eye! 

Yes, they are super fast to prepare when you have the rice cooked. Use any veggies that you have on hand. I like to use a bit of siracha-mayo or chipotle mayo when I prepare them. But if you are not into the spicy foods, just use a bit of tamari or soy sauce.
