    Hi all

    I go out a lot for sushi, but am stuck as to how to add my 1/3 superfree. I cannot find edamame beans online and wondered if anyone knew if these were superfree?

    I know they are beans so may be synned on red, but green beans are superfree so am not too sure.............

    Thanks in advance

    Edamame beans are also known as soya beans - free but not superfree. They are pulses rather than vegetables.

    I could happily live off sushi forever.
    I go to a place called 'Wasabi' in Manchester's Chinatown. It is amazing and quite a bit cheaper than yo sushi- it is always full of japanese people, which gives me confidence that it must be pretty good.

    I suppose the seaweed is also superfree........maybe I could eat fruit before I go in

    mmmmmmmm...sushi

    It is mainly free on EE- it is always best to check that they don't add oil to the rice (they shouldn't as it isn't authentic) and there may be syns in things like sesame seeds or any mayo they may have used in the rolls.

    To stay safe, stick with the plainest looking ones- rice topped with fish and just jazz it up with the soy, wasabi and pickled ginger.

    agent44, in the SW food directory in the 'smart syns' section it says that in Tesco, a 250g pack of fish sushi is 4 syns and 100g is 1.5 syns. The 139g pack (medium) is 2, a 203g pack of California Rolls is 4.5 and an 85g pack of sushi snack selection is 0.5. At least that gives you an idea, even if various makes differ a bit!X

    OK, well I knwo that sushi rice isn't free though - it has sushi vinegar in it which contains sugar. I think I would work out the syns for my home made sush rice and use that.

    Ah yes, I was hoping for a sush section in the eating out syns guide, but that makes sense, thanks :)
