  • Gobo and Miso Takikomi Gohan in bowls.

    Takikomi Gohan is a Japanese rice dish typically seasoned with soy sauce.  Although I’ve seen Takikomi Gohan on a menu at a high-end Japanese restaurant here in San Francisco Bay Area, most of you probably haven’t heard of this dish.

    Gobo and Miso Takikomi Gohan topped with nori.

    In Japan, depending on season, we add different kinds of vegetable, meat, and mushrooms so you enjoy the food each season offers and get extra nutrition instead of just plain white rice.  People are always creative in regards to the ingredients they put in.

    Today I added leftover fish cake called Chikuwa and Gobo root.  I also added miso this time because both ingredients go really well with miso flavor.  If you are tired of just plain rice, I hope you will add this recipe to your repertoire.
