Southern Style Grilled Sushi

The word sushi means "sour rice". (Raw fish is sushimi.)

Looking to help use up the plethora of chard and beet greens our garden is producing, I have been experimenting with using them instead of dried seaweed for vegetarian sushi.

I make the su (flavored rice) and keep in the fridge.

My current and easy recipe is to blanch the greens for a few seconds to soften them, slice a carrot into matchsticks, and microwave some frozen corn and spinach. (Sometimes I heat the frozen veggies on the grill in aluminum foil.)

Then I fill the leaves.

Then I cook them on the grill (lid closed) for 4 minutes.

The result is very tasty even without a sauce.
