Holidays are made happier with cheery voices of children. Of course, channeling the (sometimes sugar-charged) energy of little ones can be a challenge. Here's a kid-friendly project which will yield yummy and healthy results.
Japanese short-grain rice
Tofu, turkey or hot dogs; cooked and chopped
(You’ll need the circular ends of the “dogs” for turkey faces.)
Seaweed (nori) and/or rice paper
Black sesame seeds
Small dried cranberries cut in half
Prepare Japanese sticky short-grain rice per package and rice cooker instructions.
Scoop ice cream size balls out of the cooker with plastic wrap.
Nestle noriseaweed or paper rice around the rice balls.
Place a tofu or turkey dog head atop each onigiri rice ball.
Arrange Pretz sticks (cut in half) in a fan shape to create Thanksgiving turkey feathers.
Sesame seeds and cranberry “glued” on with honey complete the Thanksgiving Pretz turkey.
