What is Japanese Omelette Rice, also known as omurice?

Traditionally, Japanese omelette rice is made with tomato/ketchup flavored rice, wrapped in an egg omelette.

Japanese omelette rice, also known as omurice, is a very popular dish that you’ll find in many restaurants across Japan.  People eat this dish for breakfast, lunch, or dinner all throughout the country and for good reason, it’s absolutely delicious!

Our low carb version gives you the option of using ingredients that are healthier such as the use of cauliflower rice, sugar-free ketchup and sugar-free sweetener making it much healthier and lower in carbs.

If you prefer, you can also follow this recipe and use traditional white rice.

We also make our own sugar-free ketchup tomato sauce.

What ingredients do I need and how to make omurice?  

Omurice

  • Rice – you can choose to use traditional cooked white rice or cauliflower rice.
  • Butter – salted or unsalted.
  • Mushrooms – choose from white mushrooms, cremini or any type of preferred mushrooms.
  • Bacon – regular store-bought bacon sliced into small pieces.
  • Onion – white onion chopped.
  • Salt – regular table salt, sea salt.
  • Black Pepper – coarsely ground or finely ground.

Sauce 

  • Sugar-Free Ketchup – can be found in supermarkets.
  • Sweetener – to keep this recipe sugar-free, we use a monkfruit erythritol blend.  It is low carb, keto friendly and has 0 calories.  Feel free to use your preferred sweetener or regular cane sugar.

In a fry pan, cook bacon then transfer to a holding plate.

Using a new pan, melt butter add cauliflower rice (or white rice) and cook for 2 minutes.  Then add mushrooms, onions, cooked bacon, salt, black pepper, and mix well.  Once ingredients are thoroughly cooked and well combined add half of the ketchup mixture and transfer to a bowl.

Using a large non stick pan, slowly pour beaten eggs covering the entire pan and cook on low heat until no longer runny.  Add rice mix to the middle of the eggs and fold over on both sides. Transfer to plate and top with a drizzle of ketchup sauce.

Is this a healthy omurice recipe?

Traditional, omurice uses white rice and therefore is high in carbohydrates.  If you’re looking for a healthier alternative, follow this recipe for a low carb and sugar-free version with the same great taste!

Why use cauliflower rice over traditional steamed rice?

Compared to white rice, cauliflower rice has fewer calories, and much fewer carbohydrates, while containing more fiber, protein, potassium and vitamin C. Overall, if you’re looking for a healthier option, cauliflower rice is your choice.

However, if you prefer traditional white rice or brown rice, you definitely can do that too by simply subbing the rice.

Just make sure to use older cold rice or leftover rice as it’s much drier in texture and much better for making fried rice.

What other ingredients can I add to the rice mix?

Omurice is completely customizable with your favorite mix-ins.  Below are some ideas:

  • Green Beans
  • Peas
  • Edamame
  • Spinach
  • Ham
  • Bell Peppers
  • Diced Tomatoes
  • Spam
