Top Rated Onigiri Recipes

My family was vegetarian from 1998 to 2004 while my cousin from India was living with us and attending college. Coincidentally, my mom was teaching a cooking class at the time she called “The Occasional Vegetarian.”  I used to go with her every week to prep beforehand, chopping piles of garlic and onions, and pretending to do homework while she taught, but secretly listening in. I wasn't surprised (or upset) to find these in my lunch box the day after the rice ball class.Click here to see 8 Easy Vegetarian Dishes.

Onigiri is a Japanese lunch staple. Most non-Japanese know it as rice balls. It is easy to prepare and easy to pack. I personally don't really like umeboshi or meats in my onigiri, so I make it this way.

Onigiri! A staple in the Japanese boxed lunch (bento), it adds character to otherwise plain rice. Makes it easier to eat when taking your lunch with you. Also great with Ramen noodles! Use your imagination on onigiri, there is no end to the variety available. A great way to get rid of left over rice from a previous meal. Practice this one, it may take a few tries before you learn to make a consistent shape and size each and every time. It should look like a triangle with 3 dimensions. Brings back memories of Shinkansen stations =).

My DH and roommate both love sushi, and hate the fact that I don't like nori so I won't learn to make Japanese food for them at home. After looking around here and doing some playing around in the kitchen yesterday, this is what I came up with: onigiri using an Asian flavored version of my User Friendly Meatballs (recipe #216180). My picky picky DD told me to keep this recipe, so I am posting it. :) I had ground beef on hand, but you could use any ground meat (pork sounds really yummy).

Experimentation rules in our household. One night, my boyfriend decided to fry his onigiri and it was amazing. Nothing but rave reviews from our friends! You can use whatever filling you like but we always use tuna or salmon. For best results, use a short grain rice, but in this recipe normal rice will work.
