Onigirazu (Sushi Sandwiches)

Come on, who doesn’t love sushi? I have made some pretty good rolls before. But whilst I was making my Sushi Salad I thought, let’s make some sandwiches from the leftovers. So here they are: Onigirazu.

On YouTube you can find exactly how to “fold” them into a sandwich.

  • 1 cup of sushi rice, cooked
  • handful of spinach
  • seaweed salad
  • crispy fried shallots
  • marinated tofu
  • kewpie mayonnaise (or normal -vegan- mayo)
  • wasabi (or wasabi kewpie)
  • Nori sheets
  • Anything else you'd like to add, like avocado, carrot or cucumber
  • Step 1 Cook the sushi rice. You can read how to make the perfect sushi rice in the link above for my Sushi Rolls.
  • Step 2 Take some cling wrap and add the nori sheet to it. Now press a small handful of sushi rice to the middle and form it into a flat square.
  • Step 3 Add some spinach, mayo, tofu and other ingredients.
  • Step 4 Add another small handful of flattened rice on top.
  • Step 5 Fold the sheet and press firmly so the nori sticks to the rice.
  • Step 6 Wrap tightly in the cling wrap, and cut in half with a wet knife.
  • Step 7 Transfer to an air tight container and save for lunch!
