Servings 2 bowls


  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 sheet nori roasted/toasted
  • 1/2 cup roasted peanuts or toasted/baked
  • 6-8 slices teriyaki tofu
  • 2 cups spinach stir-fry
  • sesame seeds optional


  • Cook 1 cup of brown rice with about 2 cups of water. If using white rice you can use slightly less water.
  • While the rice is cooking, prepare the teriyaki tofu and spinach stir-fry dishes. They are both quick dishes so it shouldn't take long.
  • Now we prepare the nori. If it's already toasted/roasted, then skip this step. Otherwise, to toast it, turn on the stove at the lowest flame, and then briefly toast the nori right above the flame on both sides.
  • If you're lazy, you can just rip nori into small pieces by hand. For a more professional-looking dish, use the kitchen scissors for this. Cut nori lengthwise into 4 rectangle strips. Stack them up and then use the kitchen scissors to cut it (parallel to the short side of the rectangle) as thinly as possible. You'll probably get more shredded nori than you need but you can keep the excess in a airtight container for quite some time.
  • Assembling the dish is the easiest part. Split rice evenly into two bowls, and then in each bowl, place 1/4 cup roasted (or baked/toasted) peanuts, 1 serving spinach stir-fry (about 1 cup), 3 to 4 slices of teriyaki tofu, and top it off with some shredded nori. Garnish with some sesame seeds if you have them.
