"Transforming" Furikake is the 3rd chapter of Shokugeki no Soma.
Erina Nakiri is left puzzled after Sōma Yukihira claims that his Furikake Gohan has the capability of "transforming". As Sōma prepares his dish, Erina wonders in silence, only to be left dumbfounded a few moments later when she sees a plain bowl of egg white pieces.
Erina then attempts to end the exam stating that it was a waste of her time and could only approve of dishes concentrated on extravagance and innovation. Sōma remains unmoved and stops her, claiming that his dish is far from finished. As a mysterious fluid begins to melt the egg pieces, Sōma then pours the contents of the bowl into another bowl of rice. The substance then melts with the heat of the rice and the Transforming Furikake Gohan is completed.
Erina then reluctantly rushes Sōma to serve the dish to her after being stunned by it's fragrant aroma. She then takes a bite of the dish and attempts to take a second after being teased by Sōma.
Sōma then confirms with Erina that the substance from earlier on was jellied meat broth, meaning some meat with gelatinous parts frozen altogether. Erina then claims that this dish is completely foreign to her just as Sōma continues to tease her. Just as she takes a third bite, Erina feels her whole body reacting greatly as she falls to defeat. Sōma then victoriously states that there are still many things she isn't capable of making if she reclines in her honor.
Moments later, Sōma returns to Yoshiaki Nikaidō somewhere outside Tōtsuki Culinary Academy and claims that he could not pass Erina's test as she does not see eye to eye with him. Erina then contacts the authorities in Tōtsuki, stating that no one passed her test, this meaning failing Sōma too, as she intentionally failed him without any good reason. The chapter ends as Sōma sits in agony outside Tōtsuki grounds.
