Miso Fried Rice (みそチャーハン)

Hiro is quite possibly the most resourceful man that I know. He can conjure up (for it does seem like magic) the most tasty dishes with fridge remainders and left overs with very little effort.

Yesterday he came up with some miso fried rice using whatever he could find in the fridge. It was slim pickings as Saturday is the end of the week and the weekly shop yet to be accomplished.

\\Quick recipe:

Left over rice is always best for fried rice dishes. We use Japanese rice.

Scramble the egg(s) and set aside.

Fry some chopped garlic, spring onion and ginger in vegetable oil. Add in the rice and stir, stir, stir till it starts to break apart.

Add soy sauce to taste, a bit of sake, miso and stir some more.

Throw in a bit of what you fancy. Hiro used some frozen peas and sweetcorn.

Chuck in the eggs.

Get that tasty stuff down you!!

Hiro HATES wasting food so I believe this is what drives him to come up with these quick and easy resourceful recipes.


  1. This is really simple and sounds so delicious! Miso flavoring really adds to a dish so this is perfect!

    At first I thought that there was nattou in there but it's the corn. What a relief! Sorry but I think nattou is disgusting. LOL!
