Donabe rice and miso soup

The very core of Japanese diet is rice and miso soup. They are so important in our daily lives that we take them very seriously. Just like many other Japanese people, it's so important for me to make the best quality rice and miso soup every day.

The best quality rice cannot be achieved without my double-lid donabe rice cooker, "Kamado-san". Even with the California-grown rice, the rice is always so fluffy and nicely chewy when cooked with this donabe. I like doing half white-half brown rice, just like shown in this photo.

When I first tried the miso-soup, made with the soup & stew donabe, "Miso-shiru Nabe", I was extremely excited. Now, I can't live without it. The same simple miso soup made in the same way tastes so much better and more comforting with this donabe than a regular pot.

I want to thank my donabe pots for keeping my life so healthy and delicious.
