  1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan and mix in soy sauce. Add rice and stir until the water returns to a rapid boil, about 5 minutes. Cover and reduce heat to very low. Cook until rice can be fluffed with a fork, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Remove rice from heat and mix in 1 tablespoon butter to prevent rice from sticking to the pan. Let rice cool about 15 minutes, then transfer to a container and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
  3. Remove rice from the refrigerator. Beat eggs together in a bowl.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over high heat. Add eggs and cook about 1 minute. Add carrots, mushrooms, and onion and cook until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Add cooled rice and remaining butter to the skillet. Stir until heated through, about 5 minutes more.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use any rice of your choice.
