How to Make It

Step 1

Combine rice and 1 1/4 cups water in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low, cover, and cook 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed (do not uncover while cooking). Remove pan from heat; let stand covered 10 minutes. 

Step 2

 While rice stands, combine 2 tablespoons vinegar and sugar in a small microwave-safe bowl; microwave on HIGH 30 to 45 seconds or until boiling. Stir mixture with a whisk until sugar dissolves. Add cream cheese and 1/2 tsp. salt to bowl, stirring with a whisk to combine. Gently fold vinegar mixture into rice using a rubber spatula; let stand 5 minutes.

Step 3

 Generously coat 12 muffin cups with cooking spray. Lightly coat each of 12 (5-inch square) parchment paper pieces with cooking spray; press paper squares into muffin cups to form a liner. Using moistened hands, press rice mixture evenly along bottom and sides of muffin cups (about 21/2 tablespoons rice per cup). Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes.

Step 4

 Combine remaining 2 teaspoons vinegar, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, soy sauce, oil, and red pepper in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add cucumber, tuna, onions, and avocado to bowl. Toss gently to combine.

Step 5

 Divide tuna mixture evenly among rice cups; sprinkle evenly with sesame seeds. Gently remove cups from pan by lifting parchment paper edges.

Wow no more fanning the rice while sprinkling on the rice vinegar or rolling them up and cutting them. This is so easy takes all the stress out of making sushi. So simple. I know my husband and I could eat all of these and love them. Have to go buy parchment paper. . . .

Yummmmm
