league of nibbles [LoL hors d’oeuvres]

blog_lolsnacks_title

On Friday, I met up with a few friends (including some of the folks over at Geek Panda Apparel) to spectate one of the biggest eSports events this year: League of Legends World Championship Series Finals. Of course, I had to make food for this… Admittedly, I was severely over ambitious on this task, but with a little help (ok, a lot of help), I managed to finish making all of the food.

Luckily, I arrived to the party just in time to watch the first match!

There were some pretty crazy plays made by both SK Telecom T1 and Royal Club, but ultimately, the more coordinated team won. Hopefully, these players’ strategies and champion picks will inspire all players!

For the party, I created three different recipes, with each recipe representing a different champion. The champions I’ve chosen are Ahri, Amumu and Caitlyn.

I had to put Cait on the list because she’s literally the only ADC I play in ranked. I have a large champ pool, obviously. 

For the 9-tailed fox, Ahri, I’ve created Ahri’s Charmed Onigiri.

Stun your guests with this savory treat!

For the sad mummy, Amumu, I’ve created Amumu’s Shrimp Lettuce Wraps.

Get wrapped up in these flavors!

And finally, for Sheriff of Piltover, Caitlyn, it had to be Caitlyn’s Yordle Snap Trap Cupcakes.

blog_lolsnacks_onigiri_ingredients

  1. salt
  2. pepper
  3. 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil

  6. 1/2 lb of ground turkey
  7. 1/4 of pickled beets & cabbage
  8. 1 cup of sushi rice

Tools: You need will heart shaped onigiri mold.

Unfortunately, Amazon doesn’t carry the exact mold I used. However, you can use a heart shaped cookie cutter instead. You’ll need to sandwich the mold between two flat surfaces (such as a small cutting board) in order to squish the rice and fillings together. 

BUILD ORDER: AHRI’S CHARMED ONIGIRI

Prep time is about 20 minutes. Cook time is roughly 30 minutes. This should make about 6 servings.

Calories per serving: ~105 calories

  1. Boil your rice. Once your rice has cooked, fluff the rice with a fork (if you have a rice scoop, even better) and transfer to a large bowl. Fan your rice for a few minutes while fluffing.
  2. Put a skillet on high heat and add your olive oil. When the oil comes up to temperature, add your ground turkey. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Add in your teriyaki sauce and stir it through the meat. Allow it to cook for at least 10 minutes or until done. Allow the meat to cool slightly.
  4. Add your sesame seeds to the rice. Pour about 1 tablespoon of the vinegar from your pickled beets and cabbage onto your rice. Stir to combine. If the color isn’t bright enough, continue to add more.blog_lolsnacks_onigiri_cooking
  5. Place a spoonful of rice into your mold. Use the spoon to create a small impression into the rice. Fill the space with meat and pickled beets and cabbage. Place another layer of rice over the fillings and squish the mold.
  6. Remove the onigiri from the mold.

  2. Set a skillet to high heat and add oil. Once the oil comes up to temperature, saute the shrimp. Add in the lemon juice.blog_lolsnacks_lettucewraps_cooking
  3. Cut the apple into thin slices. If you don’t want the apples to oxidize (meaning they turn brown when exposed to air), you may want to squeeze a bit lemon juice over them.
  4. Place the chickpeas and apples in a lettuce leaf. Add in the shrimp (remove the tails). Wrap the lettuce leaf up like a burrito.
