Talk about a ball of superfoods! This is a fun take on sushi and feel free to swap the tuna for salmon and rice for quinoa.

So easy to make this baby led weaning recipe but even easier to eat. The sushi balls break off really easily on purpose. If you want it “tighter”, feel free to put it in your waffle maker to make it into a “sushi waffle”! This is meant to be served cold straight from the fridge but it can be served hot too! 

Store in glass container in fridge for up to 3 days.
