Even tho this is fried, it is a good recipe for blood sugar control and thus, weight loss. Just be aware of the higher calories, but this is full of really good whole grains and veggies. I saw this recipe being made on Create TV today (an offshoot of PBS), and it looked really good. But what made it pop and stand out was that she served it with a vegan dashi broth on top. However, her website has no recipe for the dashi. How she made it, as well as I can remember, all measurements VERY approximate –
2 cups water
1/3 of a red onion, sliced
2 cloves of garlic
4-5 thin slices of fresh ginger
1/2 cup or so of shitake mushrooms, tho she said you could use just about any mushrooms
Cover and bring to a simmer for about 5 minutes. Add 2-3 tablespoons of soy sauce, turn off heat. Let it sit for another few minutes, then strain, leaving a few slices of onion behind if you wish.
Alternatively, theres this good vegan recipe for dashi as well.
