What’s better than a meal that takes less than 30 minutes to prepare, has almost less than five ingredients and is the laziest dish to enjoyment ratio you can enjoy?
Sometimes you want to cook a lobster broth that takes six hours to simmer and hundredandtwo spices and the hard work of your first born.
And sometimes you just want something that’s thrown together but feels like it took you way more effort than it really did.
Here’s where Crunchy Coconut Rice Bowl comes in.
Or as I like to call it, The Comfort Bowl.
It’s my version of asian kid white rice with an egg and ketchup in a bowl
(But we’re adults now so c’mon I’m not putting ketchup on my rice anymore.. at least for this dish)
Ok, I admit it, I’m a little proud of this lazy-ass dish. Why? It gets the textural components right.
Nutty coconut rice – check
Gooey egg yolk – check
Crunchy shallots – check
… spicy Sriracha sauce, check!
It’s the best version of egg and rice in a bowl you can get.
Expect many more rice bowl adventures to come, I forgot just how good flavoured rice can be. Onwards with the recipe.
Make this for lunch, dinner, breakfast (I won’t judge).
