Carrots with Sesame and Shio-Koji Cooked In a Silicone Steamer

Carrots with Sesame and Shio-Koji Cooked In a Silicone Steamer

Shio-koji (salt-fermented rice malt) goes well with everything. This is great in bentos!

Ingredients: 2 small bento portions

Carrot
30 g
Shio-koji (salt-fermented rice malt)
1 teaspoon
Sugar
1/2 teaspoon
Ground sesame seeds
1 teaspoon

Steps

1. Finely shred the carrot. Put into a microwave silicone steamer, and microwave for 50 seconds at 700 W. If any moisture comes out of the carrot, drain it off.
2. Add the shio-koji, sugar, and ground sesame seeds. Mix it all together and it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I tried making a goma-ae (vegetables with sesame seed sauce) with shio-koji and it was delicious, so I tried this too.
