Onigiri are single serving triangle-shaped Japanese sticky rice sandwiches stuffed with meats or vegetables like avocados, chicken, pork, salmon, tuna, etc and shaped into triangles, balls, squares, circles or even cartoon character forms.

Season ingredients to your liking. Wrap the center ingredients in sticky rice. Form the rice into a shape and place a piece of toasted Nori seaweed around it.

Great for Bento Box! Eat immediately seaweed gets soggy.

You can do this with tuna and mayonnaise or anything with a strong salty taste. Eat it with your hands like a sandwich. Eat immediately as the seaweed will get soggy if you wait.

This Is How I Roll!
(no ratings)

Hello my Spark Friends!

Restaurant Sushi is wonderful and delicious, but is is very expensive. If you love Sushi like I do, I hope you take a couple of minutes to learn how to roll your own at home.

Scroll down to the Sushi Recipes to see the illustrations for traditional methods for rolling Sushi.

I found this on the website. It is a very easy step by step method using a Sushi rolling mat.

But being that I do not have a mat, I was excited when I found a method of using paper as a rolling mat.

I tried the paper mat method and with practice, I am now making some very presentable rolls.

My hope for you is that you will enjoy this tutorial, expand your healthy eating choices and make some Sushi at home!

Love, Vera

This Is How I Roll ~ Without a Sushi Mat
(no ratings)

Rolling sushi with parchment paper, waxed paper, aluminum foil or a sheet cut from a paper grocery bag is a bit harder than using a mat, but keep trying.

1. Spread your sushi rice evenly onto the nori. Covering the entire sheet, leaving a half inch on each end so you can seal the roll after you get it hand rolled.

2. Add the ingredients to the roll. Put the ingredients on the nori paper closest to where you are going to start rolling from.

3. Using two hands, begin to roll the roll away from you going very slow until you get to the end of the roll, ensuring the roll is staying tight.

4. When you get to the end of the roll, apply water to the half inch of the nori you left without filling and seal the roll shut.

5. Use a sharp knife to cut the sushi into serving pieces.

6. Arrange on a plate. Cover with plastic and refrigerate until ready to serve.
