Making Inari Sushi

I've always enjoyed *eating* inari sushi especially since they are served in Japanese bento boxes, but I've never actually seen it made. It's actually very simple and fun to make. Here are pictures of the ingredients and the final product:

Here is a picture of the frozen tofu pouches. Just make sure you defrost before using.

And the secret to making sushi rice? This bottle of sushi seasoning. There's no need to mix vinegar and sugar anymore!

Make short-grain rice using your normal method. Mix in 4 tablespoons of the sushi seasoning to a bowl of rice (to taste). Fan the rice while mixing in the mixture to cool the rice! Sprinkle in white sesame seeds into the sushi rice (optional).

Next, you take a mound of the sushi rice and stuff into the tofu pouch. Make sure your hands are wet to prevent rice from sticking. Fold the pouch close and that's it.

Looks yummy and is very easy to make!!
