Ingredients:

  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 2 strips kombu
  • 1 lb. shitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon miso
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, grated
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced on the bias
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds 

Method:

Bring 2 cups water to a boil. Add 1 strip of kombu and 1 cup brown rice. Reduce heat to low and cook for about 35-40 minutes. Boil 3 cups of water and add 1 strip of kombu and 1 tablespoon miso. Cook kombu in boiling water for about 30 minutes. Remove kombu, thinly slice, and set aside. Heat a wok on medium-high heat and add sesame oil. Sautee mushrooms until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add stock, garlic, ginger, and cooked kombu. Braise for about 30 minutes until mushrooms are tender. Serve over brown rice. Garnish with scallions and sesame seeds.

Tidbits:  

Kombu is Japanese for kelp and can be found dry in health food stores. Rich in vitamins and minerals.

When cleaning mushrooms, you generally don’t want to used water because they absorb so much, but in our case today, we’re braising them, so we can rinse them (but not soak them!) to remove dirt.

Whole grains and legumes can be frozen, brown rice is a great candidate for freezing if you’re a busy person! Just defrost, add a little water, and reheat.

  • My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year
    and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard
    good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    it to several pals ans also sharing in delicious.

  • naturally like your web-site but you have to check
    the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them
