Recipe: Maze Gohan (Japanese Style Mixed Rice) with Tuna and Root Vegetables

November 2, 2022

By making this rice base, you can mix anything you want and create new variety of mixed rice any time you want — sauteed mushrooms, cooked chicken, veggies, even fish like salmon, or sea vegetables like wakame…  Practically, the sky is the limit!  And yes, you can freeze this as well — I like to wrap into a single serving, and freeze it, so that whenever I want it, all I have to do is heat it up.  Of course, you can make them into a ball, and make a onigiri (rice ball.)

You can also make white rice and mix it with the re-heated and chopped nimono or any other cooked leftovers (or something freshly cooked).  In that case, you need to taste and adjust seasoning.  But for single person, this will be a lot more versatile, unless you freeze all the leftovers.

Let me know what mix you try.

Mari! Are you going to the Festival this weekend? It’d be great to see you again!

No… I’m so bummed. We are celebrating my mother in law’s 75th birthday reunion this weekend. I was hoping for different dates for the festival, but what can you do? Enjoy it, take a lot of photos, and tell me how great the food was. Let’s get together sometime soon. (What happened with all of these community dinners?)
