For lazy days where I don't really feel like putting too much effort into preparing food, but still wish to enjoy a nice warm meal, I turn to my trusty old rice cooker. One pot rice cooker meals are so, so easy and so low maintenance. It literally consists of prepping simple ingredients, throwing everything into a pot and pressing a button! Very minimal effort required.
This is a simple mixed steamed rice recipe, lightly seasoned with soy sauce, mirin and sake. Feel free to switch up the vegetables you want to add and play around with flavours. For a simple meal, I tend to serve some plain blanched vegetables on the side. I hope you can try it out during your lazy days too. Enjoy!
