Soboro Don (Or three colour minced bowl ) ビーガン三色そぼろ丼
Don ( 丼 ) meaning a rice bowl dish or Doburi this can be any meal that consists of rice in a bowl with a topping .
This Japanese dish is normally made with ground minced chicken and Egg on rice
I made this dish vegan by using @clearspring organic soya mince marinated in ginger juice with tamari and mirin. I used a tofu scramble for the egg and topped it on Japanese rice. This dish often has another colour like peas or onion and you often find it as a popular bento . I decided to use some runner beans .
First thing is to wash and cook your Japanese rice then leave on warm in a rice cooker or pan with the lid on.
Next is to make all your separate things so you can put them all together .
Using Clearspring mince just use about half a cup full and cover with hot water and leave for ten mins to soak . Using a ginger grater extract about teaspoon of fresh ginger juice and add this to your mince, then add a teaspoon of tamari and a teaspoon of mirin. Add a little oil to a pan and sautéed this until slightly browned ( set aside )
To make your tofu just simply mash half a block of firm tofu with a quarter teaspoon of turmeric ( set aside)
next steam some green beans .
Warm through your mince and tofu ( you can do this in the microwave if you wish ) take a bowl and half fill with rice then add your tofu,mince and green beans. Finally add a sprinkle of sesame seeds and some chopped green onion and maybe some hijiki to garnish .
This dish can just as well be eaten cold in a bento for lunch .
