Several delicious Japanese breakfast foods for you!

Post by Ittachi_Kawasaki »

Breakfast plays an important role in all cultures. Western people often choose energy-packed nutrition that is easy and rapid to fix so they can get on with the day’s work. That explains why a filling, warm bowl of oatmeal is a popular breakfast dish in most Western countries.

In Japan, there is something different. Japanese people pay more attention to their breakfast, making sure their first meal of the day supplies enough nutrients the body requires.

Here are some Japanese breakfast foods ( ... breakfast/) easy to make and enjoy ^^:

1. Onigiri
One of the common Japanese breakfast foods is Onigiri. Origiri, known as O-musubi or Japanese rice ball, is a traditional Japanese dish made from white rice formed into cylindrical or triangular shapes and often wrapped in seaweed. It is filled with salted salmon, pickled ume, tarako, kumbo, katsuobushi, or any other sour or salty ingredients as a natural preservative. Therefore, its taste is really nice and it is super easy for you to grab on the go.
2. Rice With Natto
Another common breakfast in Japan is rice with natto. Natto is a traditional food in Japan that is made of fermented soybeans. To make natto, Japanese people have to steam soybeans and then ferment them with Bacillus subtilis, a healthy bacteria. Therefore, natto is rich in protein and nutrition. Eating natto with rice for breakfast will not only give to eaters a tasty meal but also give them adequate energy for their morning.
3. Misoshiru
Misoshiru is a traditional Japanese soup that many people like to eat in their morning. This soup is made from a mixture of miso, fermented soybeans, and a dashi broth. It includes ingredients such as Japanese mushrooms, wakame seaweed, tofu, chopped green onions and deep fried tofu (aburaage).
4. Rice With Fish
Rice with teeny tiny fishes is also a favorite breakfast of many Japanese. A bowl of white rice with some grilled or fried baby fishes is perfect for a busy morning in Japan.
5. Tamago Kake Gohan
Starting your new day with Tamago Kake Gohan will give you both carbohydrate and protein. To make this meal, you put soy sauce and a raw egg on the top of a steamed rice bowl together with salt. By doing this way, the egg gets very slightly cooked and turns into a kind of sauce. It is not only yummy but also easy to cook.
6. Rice With Furikake
Some elderly Japanese people often choose a bowl of steamed rice topped with furikake for their breakfast. Furikake is a mixture of many dried ingredients such as sesame seed, dried fish, chopped seaweed, salt, sugar, and monosodium glutamate. Sometimes when eating this dish, you will feel like there is nothing better than the Simple.
7. Toast Or Cereal With Milk
Many young Japanese prefer a quick breakfast so they tend to choose either cereal with milk or toast with a cup of tea or coffee.
8. Fruits
Another typical breakfast in Japan is a banana or some grapes or a big peach, etc.
