Veggie Sushi Sanies - Onigirazu

Are you one of those people too scared to make sushi? I’m ready to convert you!! These sushi sarnies are soooo easy, different from normal maki rolls, super quick, and much less fiddly. You don’t even need a sushi rolling mat for these, just a bit of cling film, foil, and your ingredients.

Furikake, Japanese sesame seed and seaweed seasoning are among my all-time favourites. They are fabulous on hot rice, salads, veggies, eggs, and it’s now widely available in supermarkets if you can’t find them, though use regular toasted sesame seeds.

  • 2 cups sushi rice
  • Rice vinegar sushi seasoning
  • 4-5 nori seaweed wrappers
  • Furikake or toasted sesame seeds (optional)
  • Sriracha mayo
  • VEGGIES CUT INTO STRIPS - can use any, but I used:
  • Cucumber
  • Radish
  • Avocado
  • Red cabbage
  • Red pepper
  • Baby spinach
  • Carrot
  • Smoked sesame tofu - I used @taifuntofu from @oacdouk
  • Pickled daikon (Japanese white radish)


1. Cook rice per packet instructions
2. Add rice vinegar seasoning, cover with a wet tea towel and leave to cool 10 mins
3. Place a piece of cling film over a clean board
4. Place nori seaweed sheet shiny side down on cling film in a diamond shape, so a corner is pointing towards you
5. Wet your hands to prevent the rice from sticking and put a square of rice in the middle of your nori sheet, press it down flat your hands, stack your veggies on top like the filling in a sandwich
6. Take a piece of foil and shape another equal size square of rice on the foil, flip over on top of filling just like the top slice of bread if making a sandwich
7. Take each corner of the seaweed sheet and wrap up the stack. If it doesn't stick, add some water to the seaweed-like glue
8. Wrap it up tight with the cling film and cut in half
9. Drizzle sriracha mayo and sprinkle furikake
