CHIRASHI ORIGAMI

I have been exploring ideas for edible vessels and here is one that is quite simple, making origami boxes out of soy wrappers. Initially I thought of seaweed, but unless you are using stale ones (which are gross), it's difficult to fold without it ripping. Soy wrappers are easy to work with because they are soft and tear resistant.  I love the colors!

Toppings: uni, maguro, ikura, salmon, hamachi, egg, cucumbers, shiso
Packed them in a bento box and I'm ready to go!

I think this will best match with the tea I'm currently addicted with today. This looks so yummy especially since it looks like a sushi cube, I'll try doing it some other time.

I never thought soy wrappers comes in bright colors. There are colors that seem to catch attention and most restaurants use that to attract customers.

Is there such thing as sushi that uses an artificial sweetener? Because if remember correctly, I have read somewhere that there's a sushi that uses an artificial sweetener. I just want to make sure if it's possible.

You know, sushi is good for those who are dieting or active in sports. It's one of the foods that my doctor suggested for me. Since I'm active in sports, I'll be needing protein and carbohydrates - and the perfect source is sushi! Thanks for sharing! Can you suggest any store where I can buy the best soy wrappers for this?
