Mixed Rice with pumpkin and lotus roots
In this dish we add the chicken, pumpkin and other ingredients from the start, and these provide umami that adds extra depth of flavor.
Seasoned only with salt and sesame oil, this dish really brings out the individual taste profiles of the ingredients.
What to prepare
Add the katuo-dashi and water to the washed brown rice and barley in the inner pan.
Wash the pumpkin and lotus root, and chop finely.
Place the ginger in the inner pan, add the ingredients from step 2, close the lid, and cook the rice on the Brown Rice cooking program (press Menu Select, then select "Brown").
When the rice is done cooking, transfer it to the bowl and mix in the seasonings. Garnish with goji berries, green spring onions, and roasted pine nuts.
