Furikake for Breakfast

FurikakeI went to Los Angeles last month to visit family and of course aside from the visits, lots of food was also involved. This furikake was one of them. My cousin from Japan also happened to be visiting my mom at the same time I was and she introduced me to Furikake. She brought us lots of goodies from Japan (among them a beautiful yukata), but I’ll blog more about those later.

She told me that she uses this furikake in a pinch when the kids don’t like what she’s cooked for dinner. She just gives them a bowl of rice and sprinkle this on top and they’re good to go!

Furikake is like a confetti of flavors. The main ingredient is usually shredded Nori, the black stuff that is used to wrap sushi rolls, made from dried seaweed. From there additional flavors start to vary from salmon, wasabi to shiso, and more.

While in L.A. one of my food trips with my sister is to have some Hawaiian barbeque. Of course, we just had to have some spam musubi, so that’s what gave me this idea for a furikake breakfast.

Spam and Furikake Breakfast

It’s a very simple breakfast but oh so delicious! You’ll have to try it, and make sure you have rice that is freshly cooked for the best flavor. For this particular breakfast, we had scrambled eggs with tomato and onions, fried spam and rice topped with furikake. A great way to start any day!

About Jeanette Moore (JMom)

I am a terrible housekeeper but I do love to cook so it all evens out in the end. I like to try new recipes that I think my family will like. However, I am not one to follow all recipes to the letter. I tend to tweak and change the recipes based on what I have on hand and how I am feeling at the time. Feel free to share your versions, I just might try it out next time I make the dish again.

    hi Nick, yeah, nabibili sa supermarket. Check mo kung meron silang international section or Japanese foods section. Ito, nabili ko sa Filipino market dito.

    Sabi ng pinsan ko, kahit ito lang ang pang ulam nila ok na 🙂
