The original recipe for this came from my Father-In-Law who spent some time in Japan. I of course changed it to fit the Simple, Healthy, Tasty, lifestyle! The whole family loves it and it is super, super SIMPLE!! Takes less then 30 minutes to make! Who doesn't love that!

Cooked Brown Rice
I love this rice cooker! Cooks brown rice up perfectly!
Lots of yummy veggies of your choice chopped in large chunks
we like onions, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery, water chestnuts, mushroom, cabbage, peppers, zucchini, snap peas, whatever else is in the fridge ;)
1-2 cups veggie broth
1 cup vegenaise
1-2 Tablespoons Nama Shoyu (or to taste)

Steam veggies in the veggie broth I stack them in sections in the pan like shown in the picture (I wait and add the cabbage last because it steams really fast) I put the lid on and let all the other veggies steam until almost crisp tender then I pile all the cabbage on top and let it steam for just a minute. I mix the vegenaise, sunflower seed sour cream and Shoyu together in a bowl. To serve we put the rice and veggies on our plates and the sauce in a mug we then dip the rice and veggies in the sauce and eat. YUMMY! You can just pour the sauce over everything if you want. We have even used chopsticks sometimes but I am much better with a fork! ;)

Tammie, I tried to find an email address for you regarding your April post, but couldn't find one, so I decided to just comment. My husband suffers from some pretty bad warts and I'm interested in what essential oils you used. Can you share what you used? Thank you!

Callie: That is so funny that you even saw that post! It was supposed to go on our family blog and for some reason I was on this blog insead. I switched it but I guess not before you read it! ;) I will post soon about the very easy removal of my sons warts. Complete with before and after pictures!

By the way with the enchiladas in the past I mixed "sunflower sour cream" and "cream of something" with the enchilada sauce it was so yummy!

I've never made or heard of this recipe before. It was so simple and yummy! Perfect instructions including the cabbage tip. For the sauce we put in soy sauce, rice vinegar and a Tbs honey instead of the sour cream. But it tastes really nice before those ingredients too with the vegetables flavored by Tammie's awesome vegetable broth...I LOVE that recipe!
My Dad was in Japan two years. :)

Oh and thank you for the rice cooker suggestion, that is really good to know for cooking brown rice. What ratio of rice to water do you use with brown rice, Tammie?

Tammie said...

Emily: I always just do 1 part rice 2 parts water.

Do you even know what traditional sukiyaki is? Suki (slice) - yaki (grill). There are different types of sukiyaki found in different regions of Japan but all consist of a cooked meat with vegies cooked in a broth in an iron pot or skillet and served almost like a soup. I'm struggling to find any resemblance of this dish to sukiyaki. A more appropriate title should be "steamed vegie salad with mayo soy sauce" which is a popular home style salad/vegie dressing. I'm surprised more haven't commented on this but then again Japanese are known not to embarrass people in front of others.

Obviously I am not familiar with Japanese foods. ;) This recipe came about from my Father-in-Law who spent a few years living in Japan. It did originally contain sliced meat which you can feel free to add....we just don't eat a lot of meat so we have chosen to leave it out.

It is in a broth and I do now typically use an iron pot or skillet. Sometimes we eat it like a soup, usually as leftovers. As far as the sauce goes the original recipe was sour cream with soy sauce not sure if it is "authentic" at all but it was what Grandpa shared with us. Either way it's one of our family favorites.

How cool that Japanese don't typically embarrass people in front of others.....being one that embarrasses easily myself I would probably enjoy being around people like that.

If you have a favorite more authentic Sukiyaki recipe I would love for you to share it since Japanese cuisine is something I know very little about.
