Spinach & Mushroom Yaki Kare – Japanese Curry: The Leftover Series

In particular for all our vegetarian fans, we proudly present Yaki Kare (Baked Curry) based on our Japanese curry with Spinach and Mushrooms.

Spinach & Mushroom Curry

All you need for this yummy next-day meal is some grated cheese and a small oven-proof casserole dish. Adding an optional egg baked on top is a pretty nice addition as well.

You can pick any cheese you want – an couple of options we like are Mexican blends or Italian blends found in a regular grocery store. Cheddar cheese (either mild or sharp) and Swiss work as well.

Ingredients for Spinach & Mushroom Yaki Kare

Start with a layer of leftover rice lining the bottom of the casserole dish.
