Onigiri Rice Sticks


Makes 6 sticks.



- 2 1/2 cups cooked sushi rice
- 3 Tbsp furikake
- meat, cheese or veggie fillings (optional- should be cut into sticks
- 1less than length of roll)
- 3 of Yamamotoyama’s Soy Wrappers, cut lengthwise to create 6-
- 4″x 5″ sheets


  1. In a mixing bowl, scatter the furikake over the rice. Use a rice spoon to gently mix the furikake in with the rice until it is evenly incorporated. Set this aside to cool completely. 
  2. Place 6″x12″ piece of plastic wrap onto a work surface. With wet hands, place 1/4 cup of the rice in the middle of the plastic wrap. Shape the rice into a 1″ by 5″ line. Place any filling in the middle of this line, being careful not to overfill. 
  3. Again with wet hands, place another 1/4 cup of rice over the filling, again creating a 1″ by 5″ line. Wrap the plastic wrap snugly around the rice, then twist the ends like you are wrapping a piece of candy. Roll the rice on a flat work surface until you get a cylinder-like, tubular shape. Set this aside. 
  4. Again, place 6″x 12″ piece of plastic wrap onto the work surface. Remove the cylinder-shaped rice roll from the plastic wrap and place it on the short end of a piece of soy wrapper, placed on a work surface. Wrap the colored wrapper around the rice roll snugly. 
  5. Place this wrapped rice roll, seam side down, in the middle of the prepared plastic wrap, then wrap it up like a piece of candy. Tuck the free ends of the plastic wrap down so that it lies seam side down. 

Repeat steps 2-5 to create 6 finished Onigiri Rice Sticks.
