What is the difference between a hand roll and a sushi roll?

Hand rolls are like easy sushi to me. No cutting after rolling, and no chopsticks needed for serving! Some also call hand roll a cone sushi because of the shape. It is easy to hold and pretty in picture.

Similar to sushi, I like to season my rice with @marukanvinegar . It comes with simple ingredients and definitely brings your hand rolls to the next level!!⁠

These delicious hand rolls are:

  • Always gluten-free and dairy-free
  • Vegan and vegetarian
  • Affordable (talking about meal planning on a budget!)
  • Available (you can easily find the ingredients you need!)
  • Easy and delicious!
