Japanese Breakfast Menu 1

Typical Japanese mornings start with Steamed Rice and Miso Soup.  You can add some protein and vegetable dishes to that to complete the meal.  Here we served Tamagoyaki (rolled omelette) and Hourensou No Gomaae (Spinach Salad with Sesame Sauce).  It may seem heavier than cereal and milk, but this kind of Japanese breakfast is packed with nutrition and keeps you going until lunch time without snacking.

    The photos on your site really capture the beauty of Japanese cuisine. So well done and inviting….I’d like to know whether people pickle vegetables at home or whether pickles are usually purchased (I’m a pickling fiend). I have tried traditional pickling methods for some Japanese vegetables using authentic ingredients, but the flavor is not really right. Do people still do this at home, and could you include some recipes if this is still common?

      yes, people still make pickled vegetables at home although there are a lot available at Japanese stores. We’re making easy Tsukemono recipe soon, so stay tuned!

    Your website is beautiful. I was in Japan 35 years ago, and loved the flavors I discovered there. The recipes you posted for breakfast are almost the exact breakfast I had in a ryokan in Kyoto. The spinach with sesame seeds and soy has been one of my favorite dishes ever since I was there. Thank you – I’ll be visiting here a lot! Arigato gozaimas!

    I love your recipes! I have one more question. Do Japanese people eat miso soup everyday for breakfast? I’m just curious, because it seems to be a bit unhealthy to eat the same thing everyday (it’s just my impression, i’m not saying that it’s true). What’s your opinion?

      some people do. Japanese people use a lot of different ingredients for miso soup for variations.

    How much rice, spinach and soup is being served in the pic? I’m not quite sure of the size of bowls being used and am curious as to how much is considered a serving.

    Thanks 🙂

      Hi Ms. Jody,
      It depends on how hungry you are and the bowls you are using. The amount of rice I put in a bowl for myself and for my husband is not always the same. The recipes have suggested numbers of servings so that will give you an idea when you have the food ready to serve.

    This recipe is so amazing!! Anytime I make eggs from now on it will be like this. I’m 15 years old and I’m learning to cook, and I’m in LOVE with Japanese cuisine (mainly because seafood, rice, and veggies are my favorite foods). This site is so perfect for me to learn more about cooking the foods I love. Thank you for making this website, and please keep doing it!!

    When my Sachiko gets sick, I need to make her breakfast using American ingredients. She has a lot of Japanese ingredients in the house too. I’m not allowed in kitchen most of the time. I need a simple hybrid breakfast recipe so I can recover from my neglected cooking skills. I remember how to scramble eggs. Help!
