Inari Sushi

I never knew that these things had a name. O.G. always called them FOOTBALLS cause that’s what they looked like. Brilliant, I tell you. Anyway I was shocked at how simple they are to make and the kids absolutely love them.

ingredients:
2 cups rice
1/4 cup rice vinegar
3/4 teaspoons salt
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon sake (I left this out when I made it for the kids, fyi)
1 package aburage aka tofu pouches

Cook your rice in the rice cooker. While that’s going, in a small bowl mix together the rice vinegar, salt, sugar and sake if you are using it. Set aside.

Now bring a pot of water to a boil and heat the aburage according to the package directions. Obviously this is the easy step, since the thing is pre-made. Pretty awesome and simple.

When the rice is done, mix it will with the sauce ingredients that you’ve mixed together. Careful, the rice is HOT.

Now get your prepped aburage ready. They look like little pockets.

Using a spoon, stuff the prepped rice into the pockets and serve. It’s that simple!

    I use the pouches that are already prepared in a sugary syrup in little cans. I find that because they are already sweet I cut back on the sugar in the rice-sauce recipe.

    All your friends need are a shake of sesame seeds or sliced green onion tops! Yum!

  2. Yum. Nothing like them football. I recently used the ones in the can and filled them with somen salad. Damn, just remembered I haven’t posted that yet. These look great. Hope the boys had a good time making their footballs!

    I have made these 2 times already this week :D just looking online for how other people make them and found your site.

    I also used pockets that are pre soaked in a yummy sweet soy liquid, and ate them with avocado! Deeeeelish.
    Keen to try with toasted sesame seeds next :)
