Fresh veggies, marinated tofu, toasted cashews and sesame seeds combine with short grain brown rice to make a filling meal that’s perfect any time of day. This lovely spring rice bowl highlights tender snow peas; these came from the Renovator’s garden.
Is there anything better than toasted sesame oil? I think not. There’s something so satisfying and hearty about its taste and aroma. When combined with a little bit of sweetness from rice wine vinegar and the umami of soy sauce, it’s the best combination on rice.
The original recipe came from a special year-end issue of Shape magazine and I’ve adapted it over time. You can add any type of your favorite veggies… their recipe called for lightly blanched broccoli florets and Savoy cabbage, which are lovely additions. You can also top this with furikake (Japanese seaweed seasoning mix) or ground seaweed flakes.
