Ochazuke is a simple Japanese dish of rice topped with an assortment of savory ingredients, partially steeped in green tea. Often eaten at the end of the meal to fill up, the combination of warm tea, nutty sesame, golden-yolk eggs, pickled ginger, and fresh shucked Local Roots edamame makes this dish great for a light lunch or dinner. Feel free to play around with the ingredients, depending on what you have in store. We used matcha in place of green tea, but feel free to use a light dashi broth or green tea instead.
1 tsp matcha powder
1 cup hot water
1 cup short-grain rice, cooked
¼ cup edamame, boiled and shucked
