This garlic rice recipe is very simple but goes well with many stews, soups and even curry.

This time, I have paired it with my tomato chicken stew.

When I want to enrich overall taste of dish, I make this garlic rice.

By adding in soy sauce it makes it taste more like Japanese food.

If you don't have a rice cooker, take a look at this corn rice recipe.

The cooking process will be exactly the same.



<Yield> 4 servings

<Prep time> 1 minutes

<Cook time> 40 minutes (the time will differ depending on rice cooker)


2 cups (300g) Japanese sushi rice

430ml water (just fill with water up to the measurement line of 2 cups rice in your rice cooker)

1 tablespoon butter


2 cloves garlic

1 bouillon cube

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon salt

<Optional toppings>

fried garlic

fresh parsley

black pepper


1. Rinse the rice and soak it in water for 1 hour. Drain the water and transfer to a rice cooker.

2. Add in the seasonings listed above and water. Mix it well then switch on the rice cooker.

3. Once cooked, mix the rice from the bottom to top and drop in the butter. Roughly combine them together. Serve onto plates and sprinkle with freshly cracked black pepper.

<Miwa’s tips>

・You can swap water for veggie stock or chicken stock. If that’s the case, you don’t need to add in a bouillon cube.

・The amount of water is a little bit less than what you would normally cook the rice with.

<Recommended side dish>

<Storage time>

Store in an air-tight container in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.
