Rice Breakfast Bowl

  • Make some sticky-ish rice

1. Roast in dry pan:

  • Chick peas or beans of your choice
  • Walnuts

2. Add:

  • Maple syrup
  • Spicy chilli garlic sauce, or red pepper flakes and oil and garlic
  • Some vegetable broth, or water if you have to
  • A little peanut oil mixed with tapioca starch to thicken it into a sauce

You want a sloppy, sauce-y mess here. If it's too dry, you're not having a good time.

3. Remove spicy mix from pan, and fry in pan:

  • Rice
  • Enough soy sauce to make it light brown
  • Add oil / water / salt as needed to get the rice texture you like

4. Remove rice from pan, and add:

  • Cut up apples (or pears)
  • Peanut sauce (peanut butter + oil + ?)

I'm still working on good peanut sauce for this. Alternatively, just add the pears/apple to the pan to heat them up but don't add sauce

5. Remove apples from pan, and prepare:

  • Something pickled (cucumbers, daikon, turnip)
  • Sliced green onions
  • Cubed cucumber
  • Chopped cilantro
  • A cut up avocado (with salt + lemon juice if you like)
  • Whatever other fresh things you want

6. Combine

Put most rice in the bottom of a bowl. Add non-herb toppings. Put a bit rest of rice over the toppings. Finish with herbs.



  • I left the quantities out because you can vary it however you like. More spice, more nuts, less nuts, no pickles. Whatever you want. Find the balance that works and perhaps more importantly, change it up again and again. I'm still experimenting with this a lot to get it good.

  • The chick pea and apple mixtures are best when saucy. But the chick pea one could be dry for like sweet chick pea crisp things, but then you need another sauce

  • The picture shows parsley and plain apples. This was one version I tried but I don’t recommend parsley here at all. It also lacked some sauciness that way.
