Yum Alert: Angry Bird Sushi

If you’re as obsessed with Angry Birds as everyone else in the galaxy is, this is the SUSHI for YOU. If you can stop playing Angry Birds for long enough to make this, that is.

Angry Birds Onigiri:

Ingredients (Yields 1 Angry Bird)

  • 1/4 cup sushi rice
  • 1 teaspoon tomato sauce
  • nori
  • flour tortilla
  • strawberry
  • carrot

Directions:

  1. Into a small bowl add rice {reserving a tiny portion of white rice to add later} and tomato sauce. Mix to combine.
  2. Line a 1/4 measuring cup with plastic wrap. Spritz with water and sprinkle lightly with salt. Add rice mixture.
  3. Gather plastic wrap around rice. Form into an oval shape. Carefully unwrap from plastic and add white rice at bottom forming a small semi circle. Place into a new sheet of plastic wrap and repeat shaping process so white rice adheres to oval.
  4. Remove onirigi from plastic. Set aside.
  5. Cut eyes from tortilla. Cut eyebrows from nori. Nose from carrot and crest from strawberry.  Attach all pieces to rice ball to form your Angry Bird.
