    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Combine all ingredients in microwave-safe bowl. Microwave one minute, stir. Microwave for another 30 seconds to one minute, until soy milk starts foaming.
    2. 2
      Remove from microwave and let cool. Press into onigiri molds and place in fridge for one hour. Gently remove from the molds. Done!
    3. 3
      I made these the night before, and they kept their shape overnight and had a wonderful, soft texture when eaten cold the next day.
    4. 4
      NOTE 1: You can vary the flavours significantly by using different types of soy or rice milk, and bu changing the seasoning a little. I made these with vanilla soy milk and cinnamon, but you could use other flavours too.
    5. 5
      NOTE 2: If you do not have onigiri molds, you can use small plastic containers to shape the onigiri, or you can improvise a mold using a cookie cutter, in this fashion:.
    6. 6
      Place the cookie cutters on a plate. Press the couscous into them as you would for a mold, packing the mixture very tightly. Cover the plate with plastic wrap or with a dish cover. Refrigerate as you would for a mold, and proceed as above.
