Furikake (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Furikake) and rice, easy lunch box treats.
To cook rice:
Place two cups of rice and 1 1/2 cups of water in a pot with a little salt. Bring to the boil over a high heat. Turn heat down and continue cooking until the water is no longer visible on the top of the rice. The rice will often have bubble holes on the top similar to pancakes. Take off heat. Place lid on pot and set aside for 15-20 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork and serve.
For this recipe allow to cool. Mix in Furikake and shape into balls with your hands.
To stop the rice from sticking to your hands, have a bowl of water nearby and wet your hands regularly.
