- 3 cups of short grain rice
- 1 avocado
- Lemon juice
- 1tbsp light cream cheese
- some nori for decoration (optional)
Prepare the rice in a rice cooker. When cooked leave the rice to cool a bit in a bowl topped with a clean tea towel for about 15 minutes until you can handle the rice. Meanwhile peel the avocado and remove the seed. Mash the avocado and mix with some cream cheese and lemon juice.
I used an onigiri mold to make the onigiri. Make sure to hold the mold in warm water or else the rice will stick to the mold. I filled half of the mold with rice and added a small spoon of filling, then topped with more rice and pressed the mold together.I decorated the onigiri with some nori tulips made with a nori punch. It is as easy as that :) While it is fun to shape onigiri by hand, when working with a filling I find this more practical and less messy. Have fun :)
