Do you like rice porridge? It's called okayu or kayu in Japan and is known as an easily digestible dish. I like simple okayu seasoned with salt, but you can make it more nutritious by cooking with chicken, vegetables, and so on, or adding lots of toppings. I sometimes make okayu for breakfast when I don't have much appetite in the hot weather. It's really easy on our stomachs.
