what you’ll need:

For the Sushi Rice

¾ cupshort grain white rice

1 teaspoon rice vinegar

1 teaspoon sugar

½ teaspoon sea salt

2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds


For the Teriyaki Ham

10 Tofurky Smoked Ham Deli Slices

1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce


For the Onigirazu

1 avocado, sliced

2 pineapple slices

2 sheets toasted nori

how to make:

1. Cook rice according to package instructions. Transfer to a mixing bowl.

2. In a large skillet over medium heat, warm oil. Fry a few ham slices at a time in a single layer until preferred doneness, about 1 minute per side. Add all fried slices back to the skillet along with teriyaki sauce to simmer for 1 minute, allowing sauce to reduce slightly, then set aside.

3. In a small bowl, whisk to combine vinegar, sugar, and salt, then drizzle over rice and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Fluff rice to combine and slightly cool.

4. On a clean work surface, lay a 12” long piece of plastic wrap. Top it with 1 sheet of nori, aligned like a diamond (corners at top and bottom). Scoop a quarter of warm rice onto center of nori, then dip fingers in water and press rice into a square the size of a bread slice, about 4”x4”.

5. Lay 3 ham slices on rice, then layer with avocado and top with pineapple. Add 2 more slices of ham. Finish by topping with another quarter of rice, gently smushing it over the ingredients to form the top of your sandwich.

6. Fold down the top corner of nori onto the rice, followed by the right corner, then bottom, then right. Fold plastic wrap over and around the onigirazu tightly. Repeat with the rest of your ingredients to make a second onigirazu

7. Whenever you’re ready to eat, use a knife to cut the onigirazu in half diagonally, then remove the plastic from the outside.
