Whole grain rice with leak and tomatoes / Prophylactic self-isolation series. Day 300th.

Drop intro.

Making sushi takes time, especially if it is home-made version with whole rice as mine: Sushi with whole, wild and red rice! / Prophylactic self-isolation series. Day 209th. I need to say, once I made my delicious healthy version of sushi with whole rice – there are no need to tamp white, hulled sticky rice by-product anymore!
