This Japanese-inspired rice bowl is the perfect healthy breakfast or dinner! Piping hot brown rice cooks an egg, making a creamy, risotto-like texture.


  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • 2 to 3 cups very hot cooked brown rice
  • 2 eggs
  • splashes of tamari
  • 1 scallions, finely chopped
  • sesame seeds, for sprinkling

optional toppings:

  • extra egg yolks
  • thinly sliced nori
  • Japanese pickles or pickled ginger
  • micro greens
  • splash of rice vinegar or umeboshi vinegar
  • avocado slices
  • roasted broccoli


  • Scoop the cooked brown rice among two bowls. While the rice is piping hot, add 1 egg per bowl along with splashes of tamari, and stir vigorously so that the egg gently cooks as it coats the rice, making the rice a creamy consistency.
  • Top each bowl with scallions, sesame seeds, and desired additional toppings. Serve with tamari on the side, for seasoning.
