When contemplating this week’s snack, I originally planned to have a tiny cucumber baby with a green olive head, nestled in a mini pepper basket, with little black sesame seed eyes.
Then I discovered I am out of sesame seeds and someone ate all the olives, so this is what you get. Maybe next year, or send me our photos! A baby Moses made of a baby carrot would work, too!
- Leftover white rice or oatmeal (we often have oatmeal sushi at home!)
- Caraway seeds (shown) or black sesame seeds, optional
- Roll a small amount of rice into an oblong shape no more than 2/3 as long as the piece of seaweed you intend to have as a blanket. Wrap one small piece of seaweed to cover most of it. Add caraway or sesame seed eyes.
2. Place this “Baby Moses” on the piece of seaweed you intend to use as a blanket, and put a couple of grains of rice in two of the corners to act as glue.
3. Fold up the edges of the “blanket” to wrap your Baby Moses! Be careful putting him in the water!
