Green Tea Spring Rice Bowl

Makes 2-4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 4 Tadin Organic Green Tea bags
  • ¾ cup medium-grain sushi white rice
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • Spring garnishes: cucumber, radish, cilantro, lime 

Instructions:

  1. Bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Add 4 Organic Green Tea bags to a large mug, pour in to boiling water, cover and steep for 4 minutes. While the tea steeps, place the rice in a fine mesh strainer and wash it for several minutes until the water runs mostly clear. 
  2. Add the rice to a small saucepan. Once the tea has finished steeping, remove the bags and pour the brewed organic green tea into the pot. Let the rice soak in the tea for 15 minutes. 
  3. Heat on the stove over medium until the tea just begins to boil, cover, turn the heat to low, and cook for 20 minutes. Remove the pot from heat and let stand ten minutes. Add coconut oil and salt, and use a fork to fluff the rice and mix in the coconut oil. Divide among bowls and top with sliced radishes, cucumbers, fresh herbs, and serve.
