  1. Prepare Rice: If you haven’t already, cook your rice according to package instructions. Let it cool slightly before using.
  2. Blend Ingredients: In a blender or food processor, combine the cooked rice, water or broth, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, and sugar. Blend until the mixture forms a sticky dough-like consistency. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides of the blender occasionally.
  3. Form Balls: Take a small amount of the rice mixture (about the size of a golf ball) and flatten it in the palm of your hand. Place a small amount of your chosen filling in the center. Carefully fold the rice around the filling to form a ball. Repeat until all the rice mixture is used, varying the fillings as desired.
  4. Optional: Wrap with Nori: If you like, you can wrap each rice ball with a strip of nori seaweed. This adds flavor and makes them easier to handle.
  5. Serve: Your easy blender rice balls are now ready to enjoy! You can eat them immediately or refrigerate them for later. They’re great as a snack, appetizer, or part of a bento box lunch.
