Cherry Blossoms Hijiki Takikomi

The other night my Mom and I cooked something really special.
Perfect for a cozy spring night. 'Takikomi Gohan' is a Japanese rice dish seasoned with soy sauce & dashi.
It looks yummy & beautiful but super easy to make! Plus, it goes perfectly well with champagne.
This simple & easy rice dish 'cherry blossom hijiki takikomi' will make your night amazing. Dried hijiki looks like black tea leaves however hijiki is a very special food! Indeed!!!!! High in fiber, full of iron and minerals.
