Omurice - Simple Japanese Comfort Food

Omurice (short for Omlette Rice) is as Japanese as you can get. It’s fairly simple food – basically tomato friend rice wrapped up in an omlette. Sometimes served with a side of meat or veggies.

You’ll need

* 2 Large eggs
* Some butter
* 1 cup cooked white or brown rice
* 1/2 small onion chopped finely
* 1/2 cup diced chicken breast cut into small pieces
* Ketchup or Tomato Sauce
* Salt and Pepper

Sauté the finely chopped onion until transparent in butter. Add the chicken and sauté until done. Add the rice and toss until heated through. Add about 2 to 3 tablespoons of ketchup and toss quickly. The idea is to colour the rice, not make it too saucy. Add a little salt and pepper to taste and place on a plate. Best to put it into a little mound like an omlette kind of shape.

Chuck some butter into the pan. Quickly prepare the egg mixture: two eggs in a bowl, salt and pepper, and mix up with a fork. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and create an omelette shape that is still slightly runny in the middle.

Once you are done, carefully turn the omelette onto the mounded rice. It’s also nice cut it carefully down the middle and let the egg run a little over the rice.

Draw something nice on top with ketchup, like a face or a star or something.

Maybe add a side salad. Maybe not. Enjoy.
