ÉHO MAKI auspicious sushi rolls are gobbled whole — the plump roll is not cut into smaller pieces. To find out more about SETSUBUN rituals read the posts for February 2, 2020 and January 24, 2021.

A basic plump roll recipe offers vegan and vegetarian options in addition to fish. Need help with making the sushi rice? Download Classic Sushi Meshi recipe.

What will you choose to include in your roll? Looking forward to seeing what you make in your kitchen.

FUKU MAMÉ

Mamé maki, the ritual tossing of beans OUT (to be rid of bad things) and IN (to welcome good things) is done throughout Japan on Setsubun (celebrated this year, 2021, on February 2). Dry-roasted fuku mamé (“good fortune beans”) are addicatively delicious! Make your own and join the fun!

In Japan, young children make MONSTER MASKS (oni men 鬼面) for mamé maki bean tossing events. Here is a sample if you want to fashion your own.
