Jasmine Tea Rice

Jasmine Tea Rice

Serves 4

Light, aromatic and very simple, this rice makes a great accompaniment to any stir-fry. Green tea replaces water for cooking the rice, a process that adds a delicate, floral flavor. Lightly toasting the rice in a dry pan brings out its nutty flavors.

  • 1 cup Jasmine or Jasmati white rice
  • 1 tablespoon green tea leaves or green tea leaves with roasted brown rice (Genmaicha tea)
  • 2 cups boiling water, allowed to cool for 2 minutes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/4 cup toasted slivered almonds

Place rice in a dry saucepan over medium heat. Toast rice until fragrant and lightly golden in color, stirring often, 3 to 5 minutes. Meanwhile, brew tea in water for 1 minute. Strain tea. Add hot tea to rice in the saucepan. Add salt, bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cover. Cook for 20 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed. Allow rice to rest for a few minutes. Fluff with a fork and garnish with green onions and almonds.
