Bloodshot Onigiri/Purple Onigiri

Whichever you prefer to call it. I’ve considered both choices. What do you like best?

Makes 4 onigiri.


  • 2 cups of prepared sticky rice, still warm
  • 4 baby beets, whole (I use pickled, but if yours are not pickled or canned, you should at least cook them thoroughly).

To Make:

  1. Separate rice into four parts.
  2. Flatten all four parts.
  3. Place a pickled beet in the center of each one.
  4. Roll each into a ball.
  5. Let cool in the refrigerator for at least an hour before eating.
