Green Tea Rice

Nutty with a little hint of floral, this rice is perfect with stir fry or curry.

Sneaks in just a little more of that super-healthy green tea.

Time: 25 minutes

  • 1 cup rice
  • 1 green tea bag
  • 2 cups boiling water, allowed to cool slightly
  • ½  teaspoon salt

Optional toppings:

  • ¼ cup sliced green onions
  • ¼ cup toasted slivered almonds
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil

1. Place rice in a dry saucepan over medium heat. Stir rice until fragrant and lightly golden in color, about 3 to 5 minutes.
