Japanese ochazuke is just white rice steeped in green tea, and yet it's so much more. Eat it alone for a gentle vegetal flavor, or add toasted nori, crumbled rice crackers, bonito flakes, or wasabi. This recipe appeared in the 2012 SAVEUR 100 with the story Ochazuke.
- 1 1⁄2 cups short grain rice (can be sushi rice), rinsed
- 2 cups cold water
- 2 tbsp. sake
- 1 tsp. matcha green tea powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 tbsp. toasted sesame seeds
