In addition to being healthy and delicious, a Japanese breakfast is easy to prepare if you have leftovers from a Japanese style supper the day before. This combination results in a nearly perfect distribution of calories across protein, carbs and fats and is an ideal morning meal.

  • 1 cup Miso Soup (prepared the day before or made fresh, page 253)
  • 1⁄4 cup steamed brown rice
  • 1 sheet nori seaweed, cut into strips
  • 1 ounce natto
  • 4 ounces Green Tea Poached Salmon (page 270)
  • 5–10 Basic Japanese Pickles (page 292)
Heat miso soup in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Be careful not to bring to a boil. High temperatures destroy miso’s healthy bacteria. Serve in a bowl. Arrange the rice, nori, natto, and salmon on a plate and serve.
