Onigiri-a healthy fast food-is the soul food of the Japanese. Although it may not be as widely recognized as sushi, onigiri is synonymous with the phrase “taste of home,” and is a staple of Japanese comfort food. Its simplicity-just combining rice and toppings-offers endless possibilities without borders. The portable onigiri can be served in all kinds of situations. It’s perfect for bento lunch, as a light snack, or even as party food.
