|Cabbage Rice and Miso Soup|
I don't use rice cooker ( I used to have one. When the old one was broken, I was looking for new one. Nowadays Japanese rice cookers are so high-tech and also expensive. Additionally they are too big for my small apartment. I decided to go with donabe --- earthen pot. You can use regular pot. ) . Used earthen pot.
Spring cabbage is sweet and juicy. I wouldn't say it is super delicious, but it was savory.
Ingredients: ( for two servings or one donabe )
Cabbage two three big leaves chopped
Carrot 1/2 or one small carrot chopped
Parsley Just to decorate, so a pinch ( chopped )
Deep fried tofu 1/2 cut chopped
Maggi Soup Stock ( Consomme ) 1 tea spoon ( Granulated or 1 cube ) Any brand is fine.
Salt a pinch
Pepper To your taste
Butter 1 table spoon
Rice 1 cup
Water 3/4 cup ( usually 1 cup. But because of the water from cabbage, it's less )
How to make:
Wash rice and soak the rice in water for over 30 min.
Drain the water, add all the ingredients except parsley and 3/4 cup of water ( fresh water ).
Cover the lid, start cooking. Bring it to boil.
When boiled, reduce heat to low. keep cooking. Soon you will hear the spit-spat sound. Till the sound stops, keep cooking, then turn off the heat. Leave it for 20 min. or so to steam. It will be ready.
