Lunch Box request by my kids
Rice Roll Lunch Box ( rice rolled with dried seaweed )
Note: This is for Food Trippers, I have posted this already but I will post them again with the recipe. Thanks!
Here' s the lunch box that I made during my daughters sportsfest at school with the recipe, you can read the story here.
It' s so easy to make even without the bamboo mat for the rice roll. All you need is a wrapper!! And you don' t need some rice substitute or whatever coz it' s not a sushi-- it' s a rice roll! It may take a while to make a perfect roll but making it is fun!! Here it is--
Ingredients: ( good for 3 person )
Egg - 1 pc
Salt - a few
Carrot - 1/3
Kinusaya ( seapods )- 6 pcs
Ground meat - 50 g
Dried seaweed - 1 sheet
Cooled rice - 200 g
Naga negi ( long onion or leek ) - 3 cm
Goma ( white sesame ) - 1 tablespoon
Soysauce - 1 tablespoon
Sugar - 1 tablespoon
Sake - 1 tablespoon
Goma abura ( sesame oil ) - 1/2 tablespoon
How to make the rice roll:
1: Make a scrambled egg with a few salt, set aside
2: Cut vegetables lengthwise, thinly
3: Cut leak into bit pieces
4: Put A and the ground meat into the skillet, start heat at medium and saute . When the meat becomes brown, add the vegetables then stir fry for a while until it dried up. Set aside, let it cool
5: Place 1 sheet of dried seaweed on bamboo mat or wrapper, sprinkle a few salt over it, then press a thin layer of cooled rice on the seaweed ( it will be easier if you slightly wet your hands ). Leave at least 1/2 inch of the top and at the bottom edge of the seaweed uncovered ( it will be easier for sealing )
6: Arrange the egg and the mixed meat then roll from bottom to the top edge with the help of the bamboo or the wrapper tightly.
7: Cut into 10 equal sizes and put them into the lunch box.
You can put anything you like on your rolled rice-- like example for what I did on my recent lunch box, it is a wieneer and an scrambled egg, and mayonaise, rolled with rice and dried seaweed. You can also put some tuna mayonaise, lettuce and or any veggies of your choice for more healthier variations.
Remember, Practice is the key for a perfect roll ^_^ For Food trippers join us here. Chibugan na!!! \(^0^)/
