Here’s as easy recipe if your not in the mood to eat very heavy. Japanese recipe called “Gomoku Gohan”. (Chicken with mixed vegetables and rice)
  • 1½ cups rice (cleaned and drained)
  • 3 oz chicken thighs
  • 2-inch piece of carrot
  • ⅓ gobou (burdock)
  • 2 dried shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 package konnyaku strips (arum root jelly)
  • 1 cup dashi or chicken broth
  • ☆ 1½ tsp sugar
  • ☆ 2 tbls plus 1 teaspoon sake
  • ☆ 1½ tbls soy sauce ( preferably: usukuchi shoyu or light soy sauce)
  • ☆ ½ tsp salt
  • ☆ mitsuba or other leafy green herb, for garnish

  1. Put the chicken in a bowl, sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sake and let stand while you prepare the other ingredients.
  2. Put the mushrooms in a small bowl and cover with 1 cup water to soften. Cut the carrot into matchstick-sized pieces.
  3. Scrape the gobou with the back of a knife under running water to clean it, then cut into thin shavings. Rinse if desired.
  4. Drain the mushrooms, reserving ½ cup of the soaking water, then remove the stems and cut into strips. Pour the stock and reserved mushroom-soaking water in a medium-size pot and add the mushrooms, carrots, gobou, konnyaku and chicken (with sake and accumulated juices).
  5. When it begins to simmer, add the sugar and sake and continue cooking for 1 or 2 minutes. Add the soy sauce and salt and simmer for another minute.
  6. Drain the ingredients into a sieve over a bowl, keeping the solids and liquids separate. Put the washed rice in a rice cooker or pot and add the solid ingredients. Measure the strained liquid; add water or pour off some of the liquid so it measures 1½ cups. (Use slightly more liquid if you are cooking in a pot rather than a rice cooker.) Pour the liquid into the rice cooker or pot and cook as usual. There you have it, serve in a bowl or plate with a toss salad and miso soup. Have fun and we will see you in the next blog.
