Japanese-style dinner

Japanese-style dinner

Who doesn’t love Trader Joes??? They have this very reasonably priced frozen package of Japanese style fried rice with hijiki seaweed. I doctored it up with fresh sauteed mushrooms ( I used button mushrooms because that is what I had in my fridge but shitake or oyster would have been great) and thinly sliced green onion. If I conveniently had some bean sprout and cilantro, that would have been awesome. -Side bar, I need to start growing cilantro because it always goes bad when I buy it at the store.- In the background is a bowl of miso soup that is super easy to make. Just dissolve some mellow white miso in some water, mix it with some hot water or broth, and thinly sliced green onion. Of course you can always add some cubed tofu and toasted nori to make it like they do at the sushi restaurants.
I LOVE rice and especially love fried rice because you can clean out your fridge to make it.
