Donburi (dohn-boo-ree) is "fast food" in Japan--boiled rice topped with broth and either vegetables, meat, fish, or eggs. Our version combines shiitake mushroom caps, carrots, and green onions, and is flavored with Asian seasonings and miso, a slightly sweet paste made from ground soybeans. You can find miso in most large supermarkets, Asian markets, or health-food stores.

  • Bring 2 cups water and broth to a boil in a large saucepan. Stir in miso, soy sauce, and sugar. Add mushrooms, ginger, and garlic; reduce heat, and simmer for 2 minutes. Stir in carrot and onions; cook 2 minutes.

  • Whisk egg whites and egg in a small bowl. Gently pour egg mixture into broth mixture (do not stir); cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat; gently stir.

  • Spoon 1 cup of rice into each of 6 large soup bowls. Ladle 1 cup of the broth mixture evenly over rice.

  • Note: Sushi rice, a sticky rice that's available in many large supermarkets, holds together well when topped with vegetables and broth. But any rice will work in this dish.
