Ochazuke (お茶漬け) is a simple rice dish that combines green tea (ocha), steamed rice, and some salty ingredients (zuke means “submerged”).
The Japanese enjoy this dish because it is a quick meal that you can prepare with what you have at home.
- 2/3 cups steamed rice
- Japanese hot infusion tea (green tea), just enough to cover the rice. Try our special Genmaicha Matcha Organic Green Tea!
- 1/4 cup pieces of grilled salmon (leftovers are also fine)
- thinly sliced seaweed
- Chives or edamame or other herbs you like
- Wasabi to taste
