This is a super easy Japanese dish. “Don” is an abbreviation of “Donburi” and means a bowl of rice with food on top. Shiitake mushrooms lower cholesterol and prevent high blood pressure and cancer. To make it healthy, I suggest using cooked quinoa or brown rice instead of white rice. For more healthy gluten-free recipes, please visit my blog at www.innerharmonynutrition.com.
