Ingredient Notes

  • Brown Rice: I like to use brown rice because it is a whole grain and is more flavourful than white rice. It also contains more fiber, which helps support healthy digestion.
  • Green Onions: I have used green onions because they have a milder taste than regular onions.
  • Cabbage: I like to roast my cabbage for a slightly sweet, buttery flavor and a tender, melt-in-your-mouth texture.
  • Sprouts: I have used a mix of sprouts for a crunchy touch.
  • Kale: I like to use curly baby kale.
  • Mushrooms: They add a meaty, deeply flavored, and intensely savory taste to the dish.
  • Kimchi: It is a traditional Korean side dish made with seasoned and fermented vegetables, such as Korean radish and napa cabbage, and has a sour, spicy, and umami flavor.
  • Toppings: I like finishing my brown rice bowl with a few toasted pine nuts, sesame seeds, and crunchy sprouts.
