Recipe by Deborah Murphy, MS, RDN


  • 2 cups cooked brown or white rice
  • 2 tablespoons Kikkoman® Less Sodium Soy Sauce, divided
  • 1½ tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon Kikkoman® Sesame Oil
  • 8 ounces baby portobello mushrooms, sliced
  • 5-ounce package baby spinach leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup sliced purple cabbage
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and cut into matchsticks
  • ½ red pepper, thinly sliced
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro to garnish (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon Kikkoman®Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce to garnish (optional)


Warm rice and stir in 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce. Set aside.

In a non-stick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the canola oil and sesame oils over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Stir in the mushrooms and sauté for 5-7 minutes until tender. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce and cook another 1 to 2 minutes until soy sauce is evaporated. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. To the skillet add 1½ teaspoons of canola oil and the spinach. Sauté over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook another 1 to 2 minutes or until spinach is wilted. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

Carefully wipe out the skillet with a paper towel and spray with cooking oil. Fry 4 eggs over low heat until yolk is at desired firmness. To assemble your bowls, add ½ cup of rice to a bowl. Arrange cooked and raw vegetables on top of rice. Top with fried egg. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro and a drizzle of sriracha sauce, if desired.
