~ breakfast donburi ~

Donburi is a Japanese rice bowl served with any variety of stir fried vegetables and meat, fish or eggs on top. For my breakfast donburi, I made steamed Jasmine rice, stir fried mushrooms, onions, yellow and green sweet bell pepper and carrots in olive oil until tender. During the last minute of cooking time, I added fresh grated ginger and fresh minced garlic. I transferred the veggies to a covered bowl so they would stay warm while basting the eggs. When everything was done I put a little rice and veggies in the bottom of wide, shallow serving bowls, topped them with the soft basted eggs, and seasoned them with soy sauce, black pepper and Sriracha.

Enjoy this as a healthy breakfast or any time of day!

    You are such an adventurous chef! I would love to try this! We love eggs and I need to get more creative in how to serve them.

    Sriracha, Sriracha, oh sweet, sweet sauce,
    I’d eat 20 bottles and show no remorse,
    Perhaps though, my belly might start to burn,
    Then maybe, just maybe, perhaps I will learn,
    That Sriracha’s a sauce, not a drink, oh dear,
    Though my craving for it will never go, I fear.

    (P.S. – love the picture of the breakfast donburi – looks fabulous!)

      I love your ode to Sriracha! They should have this printed on the side of the bottle 😉

      Aw, thanks so much for the compliment! That means a lot coming from you. All of your photos are great!

    Remind me to share this on Facebook tomorrow…this is so my style of Asian Cuisine! My Dad speaks fluent Korean, lived there, as does my best friend…this is what they eat for breakfast every day in so many Asian Countries, filling, hearty & SO delicious…that hot sauce starts your day off amazingly too!

    PS ~ Gina, one of my BFFs is Korean. She’s the one who taught me to love kimchee 😉

      I became obsessed with it at first when I made Korean Girlfriends in college, funny I never would taste it when I was younger & my Dad tried to get me to taste it. Now I love to eat it with just plain rice, and so many other things, I adore the stuff!

        Definitely! And i’m glad to be thought of 🙂

        PS. I didn’t have kimchee in the house that day, but i love leftover fried rice + kimchee + fried egg. Those flavors all just work so well together!!

          oh my goodness. I love kimchee soooo much. My friend Jilly introduced me to it and I’ve been hooked ever since. I like a little scoop of cold rice and a couple spoonfuls poured over it. easy, healthy lunch! I can imagine an egg would be heavenly with these flavors. When in doubt, stick a fried egg on it 😉 xoxo
