＜Yield> 2 servings
<Prep time> 6 minutes ( doesn’t include soaking time for the rice and beans)
<Cook time> 50 minutes (varies depending on the rice cooker you use)
650ml water, divided
1 cup (150g) Japanese sushi rice
150g shiitake & shimeji mushrooms
⅓ cup (50g) beans and seeds mixture
1½ tablespoons (3g) unsalted dried wakame seaweed
1½ tablespoons toasted sesame seed
½ tablespoon rice wine
½ tablespoon Mirin
1 teaspoon Kombu dashi powder / vegetable dashi powder
2 pinches salt (optional)
1. Rinse the rice and drain the water. Soak rice and your choice of beans in 400ml of water for 1 hour.
2. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Hydrate wakame seaweed by soaking in 250ml of water for 5 minutes. Strain the wakame seaweed and save the liquid. Squeeze the wakame seaweed and chop it finely. Set it aside.
3. Add the soaked rice and beans from step 1 to the rice cooker. Next add in the kombu stock powder, rice wine, mirin and the liquid from the wakame seaweed. Place the mushrooms on top. Cook the mixture in a rice cooker on regular mode.
