DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  • Chop the vegetables very finely - if the pieces are too big, the mixture will not stick together.
  • Combine the rice and vegetables in a bowl. Mix the tahini, lemon juice, tamari and tofu in a blender until smooth and creamy.
  • Pour this sauce over the rice and vegetables and mix thoroughly.
  • With wet hands, roll bits of the rice mixture into balls of about 5cm in diameter.
  • Roll the balls in the sesame seeds until they are completely coated and place them on a baking tray.
  • Bake for 40 minutes, turning the balls twice during the baking process.
  • While the balls are cooking, make the dipping sauce by mixing the tamari and mirin together in a small bowl.
