Method

  1. Step 1

    Cook the rice in a medium saucepan of boiling water following packet directions. Refresh under cold water and drain well.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, bring the miso paste and 6 cups (1.5L) water to a simmer in a large saucepan over high heat. Add the chicken, mushroom and carrot. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 mins or until the chicken is cooked through.

  3. Step 3

    Stir rice into soup. Cook for 1-2 mins or until heated through. Ladle among serving bowls. Sprinkle with spring onion curls and rice seasoning.

Recipe tip

Find me… Sushi rice seasoning adds umami flavour to both sushi and rice dishes. Find it in the Asian food section. 

COOK. STORE. SAVE.
Keep leftover sushi rice seasoning tightly sealed in its container and store in the pantry. Stir it through a batch of Foolproof Sushi Rice.
