I am back to show everyone how to make a simple and healthy Japanese home dish – Carrot & Mushroom Seasoned Rice!
About this Event
Takikomi Gohan is a Japanese dish consisting of seasoned rice cooked with vegetables such as carrots, burdock roots, and sometimes chicken and konnyaku (a jelly made from a type of potato). Ingredients used for takikomi gohan differs from house to house and region to region.
As November is the main mushroom season across Canada, Vancouver-based cooking instructor Kimiko of Kimiko’s Kitchen will be teaching us how to make Carrot & Mushroom Takikomi Gohan using both fresh and dried mushrooms, and complete the meal with a healthy instant miso soup, miso dama, that can be customized using your favourite ingredients.
