These delectable sushi sandwiches are the perfect treat-yourself lunch to start (or finish) your week out with. They are a riff on Onigirazu in that are a similar shape and size but the flavors inside are anything but ordinary. You will get to enjoy a tangy sweet potato and spinach stuffing, a delightful mushroom and radish stuffing, and a smoky sprout stuffing.
