Author's Notes: A Le Creuset rice pot makes the perfect fluffy white rice, which gets topped with a soft boiled jammy egg, toasted nori, pickled ginger and fresh crunchy veggies. You can get creative with this bowl, adding whatever veggies in your crisper drawer need using, or pump it up with some grilled salmon or crispy pork belly. Serve right in your rice pot, or in wide, shallow bowls.
