My new favorite fast food
is ochazuke! It's a Japanese dish that is translated as tea rice. It's fantastic and simple, and I've had it 4 times since Thursday. The basic ingredients are tea and cooked rice. I have had it with both white and brown rice. Add a cup of green tea, and you have the very basics covered. Pretty much, you can just add whatever you want that you think would be nice. My version includes dashi grains, bonito flakes, sesame seeds, pieces of seaweed, tiny dried fish, broken bits of rice crackers, mushroom, and really, like I said, anything that you think would go. I think this idea is so great, of a homemade yet instant soup. I think this has many possibilities!
