Stuck in a recipe rut? Looking for something delicious, easy and CHEAP? Try this EASY Asian Rice Recipe, guaranteed to become a family favorite!

Our kids complained recently that we are in a food rut. When that happens, I know it’s time to pull out a travel inspired recipe. While on the hunt for a quick congee recipe (Cantonese rice porridge), I realized it takes too long to cook. Then, I discovered this three ingredient wonder from Japan called tamago kake gohan. The recipe calls for raw egg, something I don’t like, so I modified it, using an egg cooked over easy. It has no name, so I’ll call it like it is: Asian Rice Recipe with egg and soy.

Asian Rice Recipe with Egg and Soy

asian rice ingredients


  • Cooked white rice (works great with leftover rice, just heat it up)
  • One egg, cooked over easy (runny yolk adds to yumminess)
  • Soy sauce

Spoon cooked rice into bowl. Lay cooked, unseasoned egg over top. Drizzle with soy sauce to desired taste. Enjoy!

Yes, it’s that simple! Don’t over-think this recipe. Double up the eggs (two per serving) and serve with fresh fruit for a simple, wholesome meal for the whole family and still dine for less than $10!

We’ve enjoyed this Asian Rice Recipe three times in the past two weeks, at the kids’ request. It’s creamy, warm and comforting, especially on a cold day. My oldest son, who likes spicy food, sometimes adds a few drops of sriracha to his dish, but the rest of us keep it simple… as if four ingredients is difficult. 🙂

My only problem is this dish needs a better title. Asian Rice Recipe with Egg and Soy is just too long… Any suggestions?
