This one-of-a-kind dish is packed with robust and nutrient-rich ingredients. It features a range of flavors and textures complemented by the mild warmth of jasmine rice and the crunch of streaky bacon.

- 2 cups cooked jasmine rice
- 1 package shiitake mushrooms, diced into small pieces
- 1 package streaky bacon, chopped

- 1/4 cup sesame oil
- 1/4 cup chili oil (optional)
- 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
- 2 green onions, chopped

- Heat the bacon in a large skillet until the fat has rendered and the bacon is crispy. Drain the bacon on a paper towel and set aside.
- In the same skillet, heat the sesame oil and cook the mushrooms and bell pepper over medium-high heat until softened. Add the ginger and cook for 1 minute.
- In a large bowl, combine the cooked jasmine rice, bacon, mushrooms, bell pepper and green onions. Pour the soy sauce, rice vinegar, chili oil (if using) and sesame seeds over the top and toss to combine.
