Method:
- Soak the Naturel Organic Mixed Rice in water for 10-15 minutes while you prep the other ingredients.
- Mix the oyster sauce, light soy sauce and salt together in a bowl, and grate the ginger in.
- Mix half of this sauce in with the cubed chicken, and leave to marinate in the fridge until the rice is cooked.
- Mix water in with the remaining sauce to make up 650ml total.
- Drain the rice and place in a heatproof dish or bowl. Pour the sauce-water mix in, then place the sliced shiitake mushrooms on top.
- Steam on a high heat for 50 minutes. The rice should have absorbed most of the liquid and be very close to cooked.
- Layer the pumpkin and marinated chicken on top and steam again for 15 minutes, until everything is cooked through.
- Garnish with chopped spring onions, and serve!
