One quarter of our sushi selection for our Asian Persuasion evening, these little edamame maki are super easy to make and look really nice visually.
The aim is to create a base with the sushi rice and a pocket with the seaweed to hold the beans in.
- Make several round disks about 1cm high with your pre-prepared sushi rice and about 2cm circumference. This will form the base. Use hot water and rice wine vinegar to keep your hands from getting too sticky.
- Next cut your nori seaweed sheets lengthways about 4 cm thick. You might need to wet the blade of a knife with your water and rice wine vinegar mix.
- These strips then needs to be wrapped around the bases so they form tubes, totally covering the rice. Seal the ends with a couple of drops of water.
- Now you should have some lovely little bowl-type things ready to pop your edamame beans in.
- Fill these up to the top with your edamame beans, sprinkle a few black sesame seeds on top and you’re ready to go!
