Looking for a tasty snack to bring to your next hanami, but are bored of the same old triangular onigiri, which is hard to shape anyway? Try the onigirazu—a sandwich-like variety of onigiri that does away with the need for shaping, and is all the craze in Japan these days.
Cooking time 20 min
- 2 servings cooked rice
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 avocado
- 2 slices cheese
- 2 sheets seaweed
- 1 1/2 tbs of mayonnaise
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 tsp olive oil
- Beat eggs lightly with 1/2 tablespoon of mayonnaise and a pinch of salt. In a pan, heat olive oil and make scrambled eggs.
- Slice avocado thinly.
- On cutting board, spread seaweed out and place half-serving of rice, scrambled eggs, and avocado in the center. Spread mayonnaise on avocado, and top with sliced cheese.
- Cover cheese with the other half-serving of rice. Fold seaweed in the same way as wrapping a box, bringing corners to the center. Turn it upside down and leave for a few minutes so rice sticks to the seaweed with its moisture.
- Cut into smaller pieces and pack them into lunch box.
