Fast & Frugal Recipe: Vegetable & Rice Teriyaki Bowl

[singlepic=36,200,200] This is a very simple and fairly healthy dish, very easy to make in large quantities or single portions. The ingredients are few and the recipe flexible; the basic sauce only requires soy sauce, water & sugar, but can also be enhanced with ginger and rice wine if desired. Our recipe only includes vegetables, but pieces grilled or simply cooked meat can also be added.


  • Steamed Rice – white or brown (your choice)
  • Steamed Vegetables — as many or few as desired — below are a few suggestions:
    • Broccoli
    • Cabbage
    • Onions
    • Carrots
    • Mushrooms
    • Zucchini
    • Green Onions
  • Teriyaki Sauce made with:
    • Soy Sauce
    • Water
    • Sugar or honey
    • Additional optional flavoring for the sauce:
      • Ginger (we often use powder)
      • Rice Wine


  1. Cook the rice
  2. Steam or microwave the vegetables
  3. To make the sauce:
    1. Heat the Soy Sauce in a saucepan on the stove with low heat
    2. Add a little water
    3. Add sugar to taste (as sweet as you like)
    4. Optional flavoring (ginger flavoring or rice wine) if desired
  4. Serve:
    1. Put steamed rice in a bowl
    2. A layer of vegetables on top
    3. (If using meat add it here.)
    4. Ladle the sauce over both. Using a spoon or small ladle and adding the sauce in small increments is recommended as soy sauce can be quite salty.

That’s it. Enjoy.
