Rice Cube "Temari Sushi"

They're not really sushi, as they're made with non-sour jasmin rice
and they're not really temari, as they're square,
but whatever!

I've got myself a rice cube:

If you do not own one of these, just use a piece of cling wrap and
shape your rice like you shape temari sushi,
at least your pieces will be round ;-)

Now, this is what I used for what I made today:

- jasmin rice (for 1 person) 
- 3 sticks of surimi
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon of mayonaise
- 1 teaspoon of sriracha
- 1 teaspoon of okonomiyaki sauce
- 1 green onion
- rice seasoning (nori flakes, sesame seeds, etc.)
- salt

Apart from the rice, everything else is optional and swappable...just make whatever you like and make it all to your taste (for example, I'm planning avocado, smoked salmon and a mayo/horseradish topping for next time)

Cook the rice according to the instructions on the package (mix in rice seasoning when half of the rice is used),

cut/mash the surimi and mix it with the mayonaise and sriracha,

and last but not least, mix the egg with some salt and scramble it.

Now, assemble the cubes:

I used plain jasmin rice and scrambled eggs, topped with okonomiyaki sauce and green onions
the other half are seasoned rice, topped with the surimi mixture.

Jasmin rice is nice and sticky, so they felt just like ordinary sushi,
they didn't fall apart, even when picked up with chopsticks

a nice and festive rice option for weekday dinners, I think!
