Takikomi rice (Japanese mixed rice)  

If you aren’t a big fan of plain rice, Takikomi rice would be nice for you to try. It is a rice dish flavoured with soy sauce, cooked with chicken and some other vegetables. 

Normally we add seasonal ingredients such as, bamboo shoot (spring), mushroom and chest nuts (autumn) …etc  

Common takikomi rice, chicken, hijki, carrot, shiitake (or similar mushroom) are added. All you have to do is just boil them all together! Easy and tasty! 

You can always change chicken to tuna.
