Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the cauliflower “rice”

In a medium [large] frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the cauliflower “rice,” season lightly with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring frequently, until the cauliflower starts to soften, 3 to 5 minutes [4 to 6 min]. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover partially to keep warm.
While the cauliflower “rice” cooks, start preparing the oyakodon.

Prep and cook the oyakodon

Prep and cook instructions are identical for both chicken options.
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; cut the chicken into 2-inch pieces. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions. Set aside half for garnish.
  • Crack the eggs into a small bowl and season lightly with salt and pepper. Using a fork or whisk, lightly beat until just blended.
In a medium [large] frying pan, combine the vegetable broth, sweet sesame stir-fry blend, kombu, and ¼ cup [½ cup] water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, add the chicken and half the scallions, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is almost cooked through, the scallions are softened, and the broth is thickened, 4 to 5 minutes.
Discard the kombu. Working in batches if needed, stir in the spinach and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour the eggs evenly over the chicken, cover, and cook until the eggs are just set and the chicken is cooked through, about 1 minute.

Serve

Transfer the cauliflower “rice” to individual bowls and top with the oyakodon. Garnish with the nori strips and remaining scallions and serve.
