Cover the sushi mat with plastic wrap (to prevent sticking). Wet hands with cold water and press sushi rice onto covered mat. Place the avocado, scallion and basil leaves in a thin horizontal line across the middle of the rice. Wet hands again with the water and, with the help of the sushi mat, roll the rice toward you in a jelly-roll fashion. Be sure to roll tightly, but without too much pressure, to ensure an even sushi roll. Unwrap the sushi mat and then, with a clean and sharp knife, cut into 8 pieces. Serve with pickled ginger, wasabi and light soy sauce.
