Easy Onigiri - Rice Balls!

My grandma ALWAYS had a snack for us ready after school. Some days it would be donuts or cupcakes, others Subway sandwiches, another day Onigiri or Musubis, a Japanese rice snack that is very popular in Hawaii. Always something delicious.

Although my grandma usually mixed her rice with shredded carrots, and a can of tuna, I opted for something a little more simple.

White Rice
Rice Wine Vinegar 
Shoyu (Soy Sauce)
Shredded Carrots

Nori Seaweed to wrap

Mix everything together to your taste. You'll need a Musubi mold, or you can use your hands, to shape the rice balls. Wrap them in Nori and you're done. These are great for picnic or travel snacks. This mix in possibilities are endless.
