Brown Rice
  • ½ cup brown rice, dry
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
Fried Rice
  • ¼ cup water
  • 6 shiitake mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 small carrots, julienned
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 2 cup stir fry veg mix
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice (see recipe above)
  • ¼ cup kimchi, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • 1 teaspoon mirin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Garnish: green onion, pea shoots or sprouts
  1. To make the rice, rice the brown rice well in a colander. Add the brown rice, water and sea salt to a pot and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to the lowest setting and cover with a tight fitting lid. Simmer on low for 40-45 minutes. Check the rice to see if you need to add a little more water to the pot throughout the cooking time. The finished rice should be plump, tender and slightly chewy.
  2. To make the fried rice, add the water to a nonstick pan and bring to a simmer. Add the mushrooms and garlic and cook for 3-5 minutes until the mushrooms are tender. Add more water, little by little, if needed,
  3. Add the carrots, green onion and stir fry veggies and cook for 2-3 more minutes.
  4. Add the rice, kimchee, tamari, mirin and sea salt and pepper. Stir well and cook for a few minutes, until the whole mixture is hot. Adjust the seasoning as desired.
  5. Garnish with more green onion and pea shoots or sprouts.
