You will need:
Jelly flavor of your choice
1-2 slices of bread
Carefully slice crusts off bread. Flatten bread with a rolling pin. Cut the flattened slice down the middle so it's in 2 halves. Spread peanut butter and jelly onto slice(s) of bread. Gently roll up pb&j bread strips into a tight roll so that it resembles a sushi bite. Serve with chopsticks!

Super easy, right? And totally cute and fun. Older kids can even help make this. This is one way that they will not turn down sushi!
|I used Sabra Roasted Red Pepper hummus|
I also made some with hummus and romaine. Follow the same steps, only spread hummus onto the bread, then lay a strip on lettuce leaf of top of that, followed by a little more hummus to keep it altogether. Stick a strip of romaine lettuce into top for a little flair.
Lily wasn't sure what to make of these little nibbles when she first set eyes on them, but she managed to gobble them up anyway. When she's older she'll appreciate my efforts at being creative, I'm sure...
You can probably come up with some different "sushi"-fillings for this recipe. What do you think would work well?
