DIRECTIONS

  • Put rice and water in a rice cooker and set aside for 30 minutes.
  • Add matsutake, carrots, soy sauce, and sake in the rice cooker and turn on the switch to start.
  • After rice cooker turns off, gently mix the rice to distribute the goodies on the top.
  • Cover the rice.
  • Allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
  • Optional: I also add one abura-age (fried tofu), rinsed, squeezed, and sliced into thin strips when I put in the matsutake.
  • Sometimes, I'll also include a bit of diced chicken as well.
  • During the resting time, I sprinkle a few frozen green peas on the top of the rice to add a bit of color just mixing them in before serving.
