More Ideas for the Year of the Rabbit: Sushi Rabbits

The New Year is approaching and I got into this 'rabbit' mood... Actually, for me New Years is more important that Xmas, being inclined towards Buddhism and Eastern Cultures. And then, let's admit it, I love playing with my food, and my kids!

To make the sushi rice you can follow the recipe here. I have a Sushi rabbit stamp from Japan, but you can also use a cookie cutter, if you have one (maybe among your Easter's stuff?).

I have to say that the sushi rabbits looked really nice and stylish even plain! I would have them plain for a more 'formal' dinner :-). But today we have little faces: I used borage flowers, cucumber, chives, takuan, (Japanese pickled daikon), Ume (Japanese pickled plum), and black sesame seeds.

And then it was my daughter's turn, and she also used some tiny basil leaves. We had so much fun making these, and I hope that you like the idea!
