This is fall’s season, Takikomi gohan with mushrooms and sweet potato.
These are essential ingredients for this recipe.

If you like Ginnan, you can add it, too!


You can find a lot of different types of mushrooms in Japan.
This time, I used these mushrooms.

Shimeji, Shiitake, Eringi, Maitake.

When you use mushrooms in Takikomi gohan, the scent would be so good.


Please use this purple sweet potato (Satsumaimo さつまいも) .

Orange colored sweet potato has too much moisture and is not perfect for Takikomi gohan.
