Hayashi rice (sometimes called hashed beef) is a popular Western-style comfort food which typically consists of tender beef, onions and mushrooms cooked in a demi-glace sauce and served with rice. This unique hayashi sauce is entirely vegan with a deep, rich flavor that comes from eight different vegetables (tomatoes, onions, carrots, garlic, celery, leeks, mushrooms, and shiitake) which are combined with aromatic spices and finished with a special domestic red wine. And since no animal products are used, it has less fat compared to typical hayashi sauce.

Since its founding over 50 years ago, Sokensha has used the "inherent power of food" to improve people’s health while protecting the global environment. Through love, food, peace and the belief that "What you eat and how you eat is connected to how you live”, they create their products using the spirit of traditional craftsmanship without unnecessary food additives. Each of their products maintains the taste of its original, natural ingredients.

Sokensha also pursues ways to address Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Rather than being carried away by food trends, they make choices while asking themselves: "Is this the way we want to go in order to improve society in the long run, with an awareness of the environment and human health?”.

Suggested uses: Make your own hayashi rice using the recipe below. To make a hamburger sauce, dissolve ~1 Tbsp of the Vegan Hayashi Sauce in a pot with 100ml of hot water. Cook over low heat until the sauce thickens. You can also mix in ketchup before serving. Can also be used in stews, pastas or meat/fish sauces.
