Vegetarian Donburi
5 (1)

I’m super happy with my vegetarian donburi recipe, and it’s super quick and easy to make. There are many substitutions you can make with this recipe, but I’ll list what I did because everything worked perfectly together.


  • Rice
  • Mirin
  • Rice vinegar
  • Leafy salad greens
  • Aioli mayonnaise
  • Spring onions
  • Sesame salad dressing
  • Firm tofu
  • Soy sauce
  • Sesame oil
  • Shiitake mushrooms
  • Carrot
  • Eggs


  1. Cook the rice as per my Japanese Rice Salad recipe.
  2. Finely slice the tofu and cook in sesame oil. Turn down the heat and finish by adding mirin mixed with a splash of soy sauce (enough to change the colour to a light brown) and gently cook until the mix turns into a teriyaki sauce (is no longer liquid, and has become more syrupy)
  3. Cook the shiitake mushrooms in sesame oil (they take about as long as the tofu to cook)
  4. Finely grate the carrot
  5. Poach the eggs (you can use the traditional method, but I prefer my homemade poached egg molds)
  6. Serve as per the picture (or you can tidy it up a little by molding the rice in a bowl to make it a little more presentable)
