This post for Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon inspired recipes is in partnership with Disney. All opinions are my own.
Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon is out tomorrow in theaters and on Disney+ Premier Access. To celebrate we partnered with Disney on Omsom to bring you some amazing recipes. These Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon inspired recipes are delicious. Food is a big component throughout the Raya movie to bring people together. We wanted to share some recipes inspired by the movie that Disney sent us to try. We also used Omsom, which is a pantry shortcut for specific Asian dishes that combine all the sauces, aromatics, and seasonings a family would need to make a delicious dinner.
Omsom made a southeast Asian sampler that is packed with all the spices and seasonings you need to make the three recipes I shared below. Just add the protein and veggies and you will have a delicious, perfectly seasoned meal.
I cooked the brown rice in a rice cooker while I was prepping the veggies and meats. These are definitely fun to make and have to celebrate Raya coming out! Your kids will love them too. Be sure to come back and let us know which one if your favorite after you have tired them!

- Omsom Sisig Starter
- 1 lb. pork loin

- 1 ½ cup brown rice, cooked
- 1 small cucumber, chopped into small pieces

handful for garnish, and cook for 3 minutes until soft.

stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 4-5 minutes.
- Turn the heat down to low, add Omsom starter, stir, and season to
taste with salt and pepper. For the brightest flavor, try not to boil the
starter. (Pro tip: For extra creaminess, add mayo here.)
- Turn off heat and finish with the reserved onion.
- Serve sizzling hot! Serve with some of our suggested favorites. Enjoy!
