Peanut Butter Onigiri/Rice Ball

it sounds very odd but it is absolutely delicious, for me anyway. I just discovered it on a whim. I think it is best eaten when the rice is still hot, because the peanut butter melts inside and is just gorgeous. please try it :)

Ready In:
2mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 20 g natural-style peanut butter (no sugar)
  • 100 g cooked japanese-style rice, can be white (I use brown (genmai)

directions

  • Place the rice in a thick patty shape on a sheet of cling film.
  • Put the peanut butter in the middle, put a little around the edges too so it spreads well inside when shaped.
  • Pick up the cling film and shape the rice into a triangle (or whatever shape), keeping the peanut butter inside.
  • Peel off the cling film, enjoy!

    I made these for my 7yo for lunch this week. She thought they were awesome and wants them on the regular lunch schedule! Since I have an onigiri mold, they were very easy to make. Also, since I made them the day before, to warm them up I pangrilled them with a little vegetable oil. I used regular short grain rice, but I will have to give brown a try next time. Thank you for posting!
