Takeno Gohan with Tofu

This is a base method for a cup of rice (enough for a one person meal.)
Cuisine Japanese


  • 1 cup Jasmine Rice washed
  • 1 1/2 cup bonito broth If using powdered broth, prepare according to package instructions to arrive at this amount
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce Kikoman is best for this, I have found.
  • 2 tbsp raw sugar
  • 1 small block silken tofu cubed
  • 1/4 cup canned sliced bamboo


  • Mix all ingredients together, and cook for 15 minutes on lowest heat on stovetop or in rice cooker.
