Join us for the September edition of the family-friendly online Japanese cooking class series おうちごはん!Ouchigohan! – Japanese Home Cooking and cook along with us from your own kitchen! On the menu this month is sanshoku gohan (tricolor rice bowl), with a side of miso soup and apple bunnies. Sanshoku gohan is a full meal in a bowl that also makes for a perfect bento box lunch. Three different toppings—seasoned meat (or tofu), scrambled eggs and a green veggie—are set on top of hot rice for a blend of colors and classic Japanese flavors. The simplicity of this dish, and the slightly sweetened meat, makes it a favorite with kids! Traditionally prepared with ground chicken, you can easily substitute ground beef, pork or tofu. A simple miso soup rounds out the meal, then learn how to make apple bunnies for a special fall treat! Participants can cook their own dishes with step-by-step guidance from TABLE FOR TWO’s Debra Samuels.

This month’s program is hosted by Japan America Society of Colorado and joined by Japan Society New York, The Japan Society of Boston, The Japan-America Society of Georgia, Japan America Society of Houston, Japan-America Society of Indiana, The Japan-America Society of Washington DC and Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia.

Eat Japanese!,” dedicated to making simple, healthy, homestyle Japanese food to enjoy with friends and family.
