The recent typhoon has created havoc in the local supermarkets with less vegetables available and at steep prices! This might continue for some time unfortunately!
“Gomoku Takigohan/五目炊きご飯” means a steamed rice (takigohan) cooked together with 5 ingredients (gomoku)!
So the Missus steamed the rice with two kinds of mushrooms, shiitake and enokitake, carrot and chicken and their juices as well as a little soy sauce and whatsnot. That accounts for 4 ingredients!
As a fifth ingredients she decorated the rice with boliled black beans!
As the rice box was quite copious she kept the side dish to the strict minimum!
The missus’ specialty: Tamagoyaki with parsley and cheese accompanied by some lettuce!
For the fibers and vitamin C: mini-tomatoes, lettuce, violet cabbage and marinated cucumber with fresh ginger and golden sesame seeds!
A very healthy and tasty bento considering the weather and the availability!
