Today’s Lunch

Have you ever had (or heard of) Japanese takikomi gohan?

The name basically means “mixed rice”, and it’s just that. The uncooked rice is seasoned, usually with some type of stock and soy sauce, and then vegetables, mushrooms, meat and/or fish are added, and it’s all cooked together. It’s a nice change from regular steamed rice every now and then.

You can add basically anything you want to it. For mine, I added carrot, shiitake mushrooms, burdock root, and small pieces of chicken.

Today’s lunch: Japanese mixed rice (takikomi gohan), griled salmon, stir-fried burdock root and carrot (kinpira gobo), and a persimmon
