Rice With Onsen Tamago And Furikake

I won't claim this to be a recipe but rather an idea for a light lunch or a quick snack. If you love onsen tamago (hot spring egg) you are going to adore this. Furikake is a type of Japanese condiment for rice. It is usually consists of sesame seeds, nori, bonito, shiso and so on and it is perfect to spice up a bowl of plain rice. I will be posting a few furikake recipes in my next "Japanese week", meanwhile you are able to find different types of furikake in both Japanese and Korean grocers. 
P.S This is a scheduled post. I will answer and reply all comments ASAP.

serves as a light lunch or a quick snack
you'll need;
cooked Japanese rice
furikake of your choice
dash of Japanese soy

Place hot rice in a bowl, top with an onsen tamago and sprinkle with furikake of your choice and a dash of Japanese soy. 


  1. love the osen egg topping, always a delight to have in a donburi :D

    So simple but it looks so delicious with the runny yolk and the savoury toppings!

  6. Furikake is definitely a versatile quick perk up for white rice. And Onsen Tamago - it takes some skill and technique to get it right, doesn't it? ...easy as it seems.

  7. an awesome dish especially for tiffins :)

  8. this is new to me..looks so yummy!!!

  9. This looks very interesting. I've never seen this condiment but will keep my eyes open for it. It really looks interesting. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

  10. Everything is better with onsen tamago..yum!

  11. I have three jars of different furikake in my cupboards now. My daughter loves it and will often grab a bowl of rice and furikake for a snack! I've been meaning to make my own(I'll just fill the jars up, they come with a nice shaker) Can't wait for Japanese week!

  12. Baru makan kat sushi king tapi bukan onsen tomago-Unatama Don Double:)sedap sangat.Kami mmg suka masakan Jepun tapi tak tahu masak:(

  13. This is one of my typical quick meal with a little soy sauce on the egg. Sometimes I would have it with a miso soup or natto with it too.

  14. That sure is a cool idea :-)

  15. We love that stuff too. My husband is a big fan of it. The egg is a good idea too.

  16. Love the light lunches..that looks like a great idea and so yummy!
    Big hugs!
