Have you had inari at a sushi bar? It’s so easy and inexpensive to make. Inarizushi is really just a pouch of fried tofu filled with sushi rice. Bring it to work in a bento or impress dinner guests. You will need to pick up the inari at an Asian market. It comes in a can and is about $3.50 to $4.00 at my local Asian market in the Seattle area.
- Carefully open the inari and fill with cooked rice, about 4 tbsp.
- Sprinkle with a vegan furikake, such as the one pictured above.
You can get creative and add veggies to lower the amount of rice or drizzle with a little honey for a sweet dessert.
For a traditional flavor, add 1 to 2 tbsp of rice vinegar while cooking your rice.
Amount of inari per can varies between brands.
Weight Watcher PointsPlus value: 2 points for 1 inari.
