Cook the Rice  

  • Rinse the rice in a fine sieve under cold water and add it to a small pot with ¾ cup water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil.

  • Once boiling, reduce the heat to simmer and cook, covered, until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed, about 10-15 minutes.  
  • Remove from heat, fluff with a fork, and set aside.  

Cook the Vegetables: 

  • In a medium bowl, mix 3 tbsp. of the Fresh City's Chili Okazu Sauce with sliced mushrooms until well combined. Set remaining 1 tbsp. of the sauce aside.

  • Heat 1 tbsp. olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  
  • Once skilled is hot, add mushroom mixture. Cook until mushrooms have wilted and absorbed seasoning, 5-10 minutes.

  • Remove mixture from skillet and set aside.  
  • Using the same skillet over medium heat, add 1 tbsp. olive oil. Add julienned carrots and zucchini.

Fry the Eggs:  

  • Wash and dry the same medium skillet.  
  • Heat 1 tbsp. olive oil in the skillet over medium heat.  
  • Pro Tip: Go hot or go home! You want the oil in your pan to be almost smoking before those eggs go in, especially if you’re using anything other than a non-stick skillet or a well-seasoned cast iron pan. Cold egg whites hitting a not-hot-enough stainless-steel pan are going to stick.  
  • Break eggs and slip into pan, 1 at a time. Immediately reduce heat to low.

  • Cook slowly until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard, about 3 minutes.  

Bring it All Together  

  • To serve, place a mound of warm cooked rice in the middle of the plate and arrange prepared mushrooms, carrot, zucchini, nori crinkles and one fried egg.  
  • Garnish rice with remaining sesame seeds and Fresh City’s Chili Okazu Sauce. 
  • Stir everything up and enjoy!
