I had a couple of leftover seasoned fried tofu pockets from the Inari sushi I made the other day. So I decided to make some onigiri for lunch. I was feeling a bit creative and was inspired to make these onigiri elves.
You only need three basic ingredients – seasoned tofu pockets, cooked rice and nori sheets (dried seaweed).
I just shaped the rice into small balls and stuffed it inside the tofu pouches to create a hood. I then used the nori punch to decorate and make the face of my onigiri.
My Onigiri Elves. Itadakimasu !
