Stuffed Rice Balls Recipe

A quick appetizer inspired by my food cravings : stuffed rice balls or as I also call it stuffed sushi balls. This is a simple and quick meal to satisfy sushi cravings, in case you can go out to have some, which will be the best option, and have only a few basic ingredients at home.

Sushi rice and roasted seaweed will be some of the ingredients I always have on hand, not that I make sushi that often, I don’t consider myself as sushi master, not at all, I can only make basic rolls. I prefer to have sushi at specialized restaurants. But it’s not always a possible option, that’s why I keep those basics on hand.
