Fish Cake and Miso Takikomi Gohan


  • 1 1/2 cup of mixed grain rice (or rice of choice)
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1/4 cup of miso paste
  • 1/4 cup of mirin
  • 4 sticks of fried fish cake, sliced
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 5 bunches of bok choy, halved
  • 1 1/4 cup (3 oz) of wood ear mushroom (or mushroom of choice)
  • 2 bunches of green onion, chopped
  • Furikake (optional, for garnish)


  1. Wash and drain rice. Place in the rice cooker bowl.
  2. Add the mirin and one cup of water.
  3. In a smaller bowl, combine the other cup of water, and miso paste. Mix until the paste is dissolved, then add into the rice.
  4. Add the sliced carrots and mushroom into the rice.
  5. Choose the appropriate setting (i.e. “Brown Rice” setting for me, as I used a mix of brown, purple, and red rice) to start cooking.
  6. After 20-25 minutes, when the miso aroma is apparent, add the halved bok choy and chopped fried fish cakes.
  7. Once the rice cooker is done, mix everything.
  8. Top with chopped green onion and furikake, and enjoy!
