This Month’s Easy to Cook Japanese Recipe is Kinoko gohan, which is a quick and easy dish to make at home.

This is one of our family favourites and is really tasty with all those great Japanese mushrooms like Enoki and Shitake.

Makes approx 4 cups cooked rice


• 2 cups short grain rice
• 2 cups dashi
• 1 Tbsp sake
• 1 Tbsp light soy sauce
• 4 fresh shitake mushrooms
• 1 packet of enoki mushrooms
• 4 oyster mushrooms


1. See preparation of rice outlined earlier How to Prepare Japanese Rice
2. Place rice in saucepan.
3. Add dashi, sake, soy sauce and mushrooms.
4. Bring to the boil with the lid on and then simmer for 14 minutes.
5. Remove the saucepan from the heat and leave to rest with lid on for 5-10 minutes.
6. Before serving, gently turn the rice over with a moistened rice paddle to allow excess moisture to escape as steam.

    1. Thanks Lina, Just the way I like my recipes quick, simple and yummy :)

  2. Rice and mushrooms, simple and easy, a perfect meal!

    PS: Well, perfect provided it's followed by chocolate cake for dessert. :D

    1. Thanks Rurousha, Simple and Esay is best for me :)
      Love the idea of a chocolate cake for dessert as long as I'm the one not making it :)

  3. I thought this recipe would call for purchasing a packet in the grocery store and emptying it, with rice, into the rice cooker :-) Nice to use fresh shiitake.

    1. Thanks StarBrooke, Fresh is best and that is what I love about Japanese cuisine, the fresh seasonal ingredients. Can't beat shitake my favourite mushroom :)

  4. I love mushroom rice and it's so easy I could even cook it (although my wife still does it thousand times better than I would ever)

    1. Thanks David, It is really so simple and easy to make and tastes great. Yeah, I'm with you, I can make it OK but the wife does the best version :)
