This vegetarian Omusubi uses the fragrant and chewy brown rice, and the tsukudani (simmering in Japanese sauce) filling contains juicy and chunky fresh shiitake mushroom and thick-cut kombu. The two amplify the flavour in each other to create a deeper umami, while the shiitake mushroom is cut into thicker pieces to present its firm texture. The seasoning is mainly a sweet soy sauce base, which is saccharine and savoury and makes the Japanese rice even more delicious.
