Carrot chip onigiri -- crunchy carrot chips become delightfully chewy when combined with hot steamed rice to make these colorful onigiri (Japanese rice balls). The carrot chips also give the rice balls great flavor.
Combine the hot rice with the sea salt and crushed Bare Snacks Sea Salt Carrot Chips in a bowl and toss gently to mix well.
Place a piece of plastic wrap in a rice bowl and scoop one-quarter of the rice mixture into the bowl.
Pull the edges of the plastic wrap up to make a little pouch. Mold the rice into a ball or triangle. Repeat with the remaining rice.
Remove the plastic wrap and wrap the rice balls with nori, if desired. Serve immediately, or re-wrap with plastic wrap and pack into a bento.
*Look for rice labeled as sushi rice or Calrose rice. You do not want to use a long grain rice, as this rice won't stick together, like a medium or short-grain Japanese rice.
