Soboro Onigiri

If you are lucky to have some leftover soboro, let’s make Soboro onigiri for simple lunch or snack! Onigiri (or omusubi) is rice ball and they are super easy to make and so yummy. They are Japanese comfort food made from rice formed into triangular or oval shapes and usually wrapped in nori (seaweed) and contain various fillings inside such as Umeboshi (picked plum) ,grilled salted salmon, Konbu (simmered konbu with soy sauce, sake and sugar) are very popular, but there are some modern fillings such as tuna-mayo (canned tuna mixed with mayonnaise.

Onigiri is great on the go, I often make them  after school snakes for my boys when we have to be there somewhere right after school, it is often soccer field. 🙂
