Before you hate ketchup, TRY Kagome Tomato Ketchup! This is what we use to make Omurice. You can easily find it at a Japanese grocery store.


Omurice (Japanese Omelet Rice)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 20min
Number of servings: 4

600g (1.3lb.) warm cooked rice
200g (7oz.) chicken breast without skin
200g (7oz.) onion
50g (1.8oz.) canned sliced mushrooms
8 eggs
cooking oil
tomato ketchup
salt and pepper
cooked broccoli *if you like

1. Dice the chicken and chop the onion. Heat 1 tbsp. of cooking oil in a frying pan and cook the chopped onion until tender. Add the diced chicken and cook until no longer pink. Add the sliced mushrooms and 8 tbsp. of ketchup and continue cooking. Stir to coat evenly.
2. Add warm cooked rice, season with salt and pepper. Divide it into 4 portions. *you can wrap the leftover rice in plastic wrap and keep in the freezer for about a week or more.
3. Beat 2 eggs (1 serving) in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. In another frying pan, heat 1/2 tbsp. of cooking oil, spread the egg mixture and make a round sheet of egg. Before the egg is fully cooked, place one portion of the seasoned rice in the middle. Fold up both sides of the egg, then shape it using the edge of the pan. Carefully flip it over onto a plate. *You can use a paper towel to help shape it.
4. Decorate with ketchup on top, and serve with cooked broccoli if you like.
