It’s time to celebrate Ewoks! The furry friends from the forest moon of Endor are tiny but tough and sometimes worship a golden god. While their allegiance may be misdirected, they are steadfast allies always willing to lend a helping hand.

Ewoks

Though they are carnivorous creatures who’s to say they wouldn’t dabble in a vegetarian lifestyle now and again? These seasoned tofu pockets filled with brown rice look just like the pint-sized warriors and are just as tasty as they are adorable.

Ewok Sushi

You’ll need:

  • 1 package aburaage tofu pouches
  • 1 sheet seaweed
  • 1 slice salami

For the rice:

  • 2 cups brown rice
  • 3 cups water
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Step 1: Rinse the brown rice until water runs clear. Soak in cold water for 30 minutes, then drain.

Step 2: In a large saucepan add the rice and 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil.

Step 3: Cover and reduce heat, then simmer for 20 minutes until the water is absorbed. Remove from heat, let sit for 10 minutes, covered.
