Enjoying Your Traditional Japanese Breakfast

traditional japanese breakfast

The Japanese have been making use of the traditional method of preparation for a very long time, over centuries. This method, called kaishi, has remained essentially the same throughout all the years. In this article we look at the traditional Japanese breakfast that can be eaten any time of the day.

If you were to go back to Japan, you would find that the traditional breakfast includes a bowl of soup and a small amount of rice. This soup is normally prepared by adding onions, ginger and a few coriander leaves. It is then simmered with hot water for about five minutes until it becomes a deep, dark colour.

Many people in Japan now like to have scrambled eggs on top of their steamed rice. The egg is first beaten vigorously with a wooden spoon before being placed into the steamer. This is done with a single side being cooked faster than the other. After this the eggs are cooked in the boiling water for about six minutes before they are served. This breakfast is eaten with or without vegetables.

A large meal usually begins with a bowl of white rice. This is then followed by vegetables such as onions, ginger and garlic before moving onto bread and fish. Fish is served alongside the rice as one of the main dishes. Sometimes there will be additional vegetables or cheese added onto the rice for extra taste.

When it comes to the meat in Japan, it is considered slightly different to the way it is eaten here in the west. Here the kuromame is the type of meat that is prepared. It is cooked with sake, one of the traditional ingredients that is often seen in Japanese foods. One egg may be added onto the food when preparing this dish as well. While one egg may not seem like much, it is one of the main contributors to this popular breakfast.

Another popular meal that is eaten alone is the seaweed soup. This soup is made from mocha, one of the sweetened rice varieties, wasabi, and show vinegar. This soup is often served with additional vegetables and fish or other items.

Some of the most popular foods that are eaten together include the meat, eggs, and rice. Other items may include vegetable medleys such as carrots and spinach. There may also be special foods such as one of the two sushi rolls that are served. The basic maki roll contains rice, egg, and one piece of fish or other seafood.

Japanese Breakfast is always a fun time for families. Most people enjoy it, and it is easy to make. All that is needed are a few ingredients and a short amount of preparation time. The whole family can get into the kitchen and have a great time over a scrumptious meal. No matter what type of food is ordered, the happiness and contentment that come from this hearty breakfast will be enjoyed by everyone.
