Ingredients (serves one)
- 1 egg
- 1 bowl of rice
- soy sauce to taste
- ※ Seaweed, etc according to your preference
How to make
- Separate the egg white and yolk.
- Make a meringue with the egg white. ※ This time we made meringue using a milk foamer jug bought at a 100 yen shop, but you can of course make it with a whisk or fork or chopsticks.
- Place then meringue and then the egg yolk on hot cooked rice and pour soy sauce over it. It will be even better if you add your preferred topping.
