I’ve been trying to come up with more finger type foods, especially ones that are great for lunch boxes. I love sushi, but sadly my kids don’t share my enthusiasm, they just are not keen on cold or raw fish. So I figured I would just have a go at making some rice balls which I could pair up with other proteins. These are so simple to make, but really good with the dipping sauce.
Rice Balls with dipping sauce
- 1 cup of sushi rice or calrose rice
- 2 cups of water
- 1 tsp of butter
- 2 tablespoons of coconut aminos or you can use a low sodium soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons of water
- 1 spring onion sliced finely
- 1 tsp of sesame oil
- 1 tsp of maple syrup
- sesame seeds
- Place rice and butter in a saucepan over a medium high heat with the water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cover, simmer until all liquid is almost absorbed.
- Then turn off heat and leave, the steam trapped underneath will continue to cook the rice.
- Allow rice to cool and then you can roll into balls.
- Add the coconut aminos, water, sesame oil, maple syrup, spring onion and a sprinkling of sesame seeds to a bowl and whisk together.
- Enjoy the rice balls dipped into the sauce.
- These are great for lunch boxes, as they are served cold.
