According to Wikipedia “Donburi” is a Japanese dish, where a bowl is filled with rice and then topped with additional ingredients. So it is just fitting that “Donburi” literally translates to “bowl”. It is one of my favorite dished to cook, because one can use whatever topping can be found at home. So during the week I can keep it simple with just one vegetable topping or go all out on the weekend, frying chicken and prepping four different vegetables as a topping.
And that is exactly the reason why this here is not a blog-typical recipe, because you and I may vary the toppings on the rice as we see fit at that moment. For example, for the picture I chose: carrots glazed in Hoisin sauce, corn and paprika cooked in miso broth, white elephant beans in BBQ and Siracha sauce, and Edamame and leek seared in soy sauce.
