Sosu Amoy Donburi Meal Kit

I had picked up this meal kit shopping at Tesco and had it in the cupboard for a while. 

Japanese style meal kit with individual sachets of miso cooking paste, teriyaki cooking sauce, furikake seasoning and sticky rice.

It was pretty easy to cook and rather tasty.

First stage was to preheat the oven to 180℃.

In a saucepan, I added the Sosu Sticky Rice and 250ml water, brought it to the boil, covered and turned to a low heat for 12 mins. When the rice is cooked the water will have been absorbed and the rice will be sticky and soft. I kept it in the pan with the lid on until I was ready to serve.

I took some boned chicken thighs, broccoli florets, and strips of butternut squash. I squeezed over the Sosu Miso Cooking Paste and mixed well.

This was baked in the oven for ten minutes.

I took the chicken out of the oven, poured over the Sosu Teriyaki Cooking Sauce, as a glaze, and returned to the oven for a further 3 mins.

I took the cooked rice and divided between two bowls, topped with the chicken, butternut squash, and broccoli and added grated carrot and sliced spring onions. I then scattered the Sosu Furikake Seasoning over the dish.

It was rather good, and I would get it again.

It was different

Though I like to try different things when I go out to eat, it would appear that when I visit Wagamama that I seem to go for the Wagamama Ramen and if I have a side, it’s the Chilli Squid.

So on my most recent visit to Wagamama I made the bold choice of going for something different and it was. I went with their Shiitake Donburi.

This is shiitake mushrooms and broccoli omelette served on brown rice in a teriyaki sauce garnished with shredded carrots, spring onions, chilli and pea shoots.

This was (for me) an interesting combination of flavours and textures. I really like the taste and texture of the shiitake mushrooms, which combined with the smoothness of the egg, the roughness of the rice and the saltiness of the teriyaki sauce resulted in a delicious dish of food.

The addition of the carrots, spring onions and pea shoots added a freshness and crispness to the dish.

Overall I was pleased with the dish, though I don’t think I will go for it again, I will either (more than likely) go with the ramen again, or try something new.
