Vegan Quinoa Totoro by #RawChefYin

Attempt number 2 at making Totoro Onigiri...except these are not made with rice, they're made with organic quinoa as my body doesn't respond well to rice.
Have been inspired to make these after attending the workshop by Madam Kyoto Rabbets at Kitchen Shop GE Mall last weekend. She's an award winning author of the book "New Japanese Kitchen". After her workshop, I did even more research on Totoro Onigiri and saw @minicuteclub make a blue one as well and so I googled the images and figured I could use up the Butterfly Pea Tea that @everleafstoremalaysia delivered to me to naturally colour my Blue Totoro.
I got myself a seaweed cutter from Daiso but it doesn't work very well. So I still ended up cutting the seaweed with a scissors.

This is what I used:
White Totoro:
🔸Body - organic quinoa mixed with chia seeds and ground black sesame
🔸Tummy - quinoa with soaked cashews
🔸Eyes - quinoa + cashews plus nori seaweed for the eyeballs
🔸Whiskers - dried lemongrass (this happened to be in my fridge)

Blue Totoro:
🔸Body - organic quinoa mixed cashews and liquid from Butterfly Pea Flower tea from @tais_choice_kitchen 🔸Tummy - quinoa with soaked cashews
🔸Eyes - quinoa + cashews plus nori seaweed for the eyeballs

🔸Quinoa + cashews
🔸Nori Seaweed

I've already had enquiries on when I'm going to teach this!
