Temari Sushi – 手鞠寿司

Give those fancy looking sushi rolls a miss and try your hands at these adorable round shaped sushi instead!

What separates great tasting sushi from mediocre ones lies not only in using fresh ingredients. Rice plays a huge role in its taste profile too. Save time and skip the rinsing process with Kinmemai Better Brown Rice. Lighter and fluffier than conventional brown rice, Kinmemai has gone through the hassle of removing that ‘wax’ coating on the rice so consumers don’t have to! Without the help of any additives or chemicals, their gentle buffing technology helps to take away the coating, so each grain is able to retain its nutrients along with all its great flavours.

Sashimi fish, grilled meat, fresh vegetables or thinly sliced omelette shreds, there are just so many ingredients to choose from. Simply place the toppings of your choice on the cling film, add a rice ball on top, wrap it all up. Give it a firm little squeeze to shape the rice and unwrap to unveil your work of art.

These colourful little rice balls are SO ADORABLE, looking at it just brightens up your day. Fuss free, picture perfect and full of your favourite food – it’s the perfect treat for any occasions!
