Many people think that only the egg white contains proteins - but the fact is: The egg yolk even supplies more proteins than the egg white. However, both parts of the chicken egg contain significant amounts. An egg is therefore rightly regarded as a good source of protein, especially as it provides particularly high-quality proteins that the body can use 100 percent.

For the delicious Tamago sushi the perfect rice should not be missing. With the recipe for cooked sushi rice from EAT SMARTER, it's guaranteed to work!

Ingredients
6
1 teaspoon
2 tablespoons
1 pinch
1 tablespoon
Vegetable oil (for frying)
1
toasted Nori sheet
150 grams
prepared Sushi rice

Preparation steps

1.

Crack the eggs in a bowl along with 2 tablespoons water. Add the soy sauce, sugar, salt and rice wine and whisk together until combined but not frothy.

2.

Pour the egg mixture into an oiled baking pan, approximately 2 cm (3/4 inch) deep.

3.

Brush a hot pan with oil, then pour a thin layer of egg mixture into the pan and let stand over medium heat until bubbles appear. Use a small spatula to lift the edge and fold it over twice towards the edge of the pan so that it is 6 cm (2 1/4 inches) wide. Brush the free space in the pan with a little oil and pour a thin layer of egg mixture into that space, immediately lifting the edge to let uncooked egg run underneath, and when just set roll the rolled egg up in this new layer. Continue in this manner until the entire egg is used and the omelette is about 2 cm (3/4 inch thick.)

4.

Let the finished omelet cool to room temperature. Cut in half crosswise, then cut those halves into 4 equally sized, rectangular pieces.

5.

Cut the nori sheet into eight 2 cm (3/4 inch) wide strips.

6.

Form the sushi rice into 8 rectangular blocks.

7.

Top each rice block with a slice of omelet and gently press down with your hands. Wrap each in a strip of nori, "gluing" in place wtih a few grains of rice.
