Standard 5 Ingredient Rice

Standard 5 Ingredient Rice

This 5 ingredient rice is a standard dish in our home. Since the shiitake soaking is included in the water used to cook the rice, it's umami packed.

Ingredients: 4-5 servings

Chicken thigh
1 thigh
Dried shiitake mushrooms
Burdock root
Dashi stock
enough to fill until the appropriate marker
Shiitake soaking liquid
200 ml
2 tablespoons
★Soy sauce

1 tablespoon
1/2 teaspoon
1 teaspoon
☆Soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon
Peas or frozen edamame

1. 30 minutes before cooking, wash the rice and let it sit in a colander. Reconstitute the shiitake mushrooms. Pour hot water over the aburaage.
2. Thinly slice the shiitake, cut the burdock into thin shavings, julienne the carrot. Cut the aburaage in half vertically and then cut into thin slices. Remove the skin from the chicken, cut into small pieces, and marinate in the ☆ ingredients.
3. Put the rice into the rice cooker bowl and add the ★ ingredients and the liquid used for reconstituting the shiitake. Fill with dashi stock until the appropriate serving line. Add Step 2, mix it roughly, and cook.
4. Once done, add in the edamame. If using peas, boil and julienne them and then sprinkle over the top of the rice.
