An A.M. Bowl You Weren't Expecting
Plain, steamed rice is an essential part of a Japanese breakfast, and Judy Joo, owner of Jinjuu in London, often relies on it as the foundation of her morning meal. Sometimes she tops the grains with a fried egg, drizzles soy sauce and sesame oil on top and finishes the dish with a dash of Korean chili paste. Another version she makes is rice with gim seaweed (a flakier, saltier alternative to nori) and a sprinkling of sesame seeds.
