This is basically the PB&J of Japan and a great way to use up sushi rice. If you're packing these for lunch, wrap them in plastic wrap to keep them from drying out.

Ingredients

4
cups cooked calrose (sushi) rice
2
sheets nori seaweed OR 6 nori snack strips (e.g., teriyaki flavor)

Possible fillings:

Umeboshi
Chopped pickles
Miso

Directions

  • 1 Scoop a ball with wet hands and form a little pocket in the middle to stuff in your choice of fillings.
  • 2 Cap the filling with more rice, form into a rounded triangle or ball and slap a little strip of nori on to keep your hands from getting messy when grabbing one. You can also wrap the balls completely, or just use one strip.
