    From the Test Kitchen

    Satisfyingly savory flavors abound in this dish thanks to the umami-rich sauce of soy sauce, sesame oil, and sweet chili that we’re tossing with delightfully tender sautéed peppers and bok choy. It's all complete with the rich yolk of a perfectly soft-boiled egg, plus togarashi-seasoned peanuts for a welcome crunch.

    • 15 oz Baby Bok Choy
    • 2 Scallions

    Cook the eggs
    1 Cook the eggs

    Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Carefully add the eggs to the pot of boiling water. Cook 7 minutes for soft-boiled, or until your desired degree of doneness. Reserving the pot, drain thoroughly and rinse under cold water 30 seconds to 1 minute to stop the cooking process. When cool enough to handle, peel the cooked eggs. Season with salt and pepper.

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then cut lengthwise into 1-inch pieces. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop. Peel the ginger; finely chop to get 2 tablespoons (you may have extra). Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Peel the carrots and grate on the large side of a box grater; place in a bowl. Add the ponzu sauce; stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. In a separate bowl, combine the soy sauce, sesame oil, sweet chili sauce, and 2 tablespoons of water.

    3 Cook the rice

    Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. In the same pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until coated and fragrant. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; immediately season with salt. Rinse and wipe out the pan.
