About the Recipe

While this recipe is good enough to eat by itself as a snack or as a lunch box filler, why not pair it with a hearty miso soup to make it into a satisfying and nourishing lunch?


260g cooked japanese rice

2 tbsp cooked sweetcorn

2 tsp white sesame seeds

1/2 tsp salt

2 strips of nori (4cm x 12cm / 1.5 inch X 4.5 inch)


put the rice, sweetcorn, sesame & salt in a bowl and 

mix well (but avoid mashing the rice)

wet your hands to stop the rice from sticking

take half of the rice mixture and shape it into a flat, triangular ball (don't worry if it doesn't look right first time - just try it again!)

once, you have a nice triangular shape, wrap the nori around the onigiri

repeat for your second onigiri and you're done!
