Cooking with green tea? Yes it's a thing. Have you ever tried cooking with Green Tea? Try this incredibly easy green tea soup, it does not get any easier. Alternating your cooking liquids to use bone, vegetable or Tea broth adds nourishment to your meal plan. Especially with the cold season coming up, this is not only soothing but helps to strengthen your immune system too.
The perfect meal for busy schedules ... and super nourishing at the same time. Because it is created instantly from leftovers, it's a perfect meal for work lunches or for when you are in a hurry but do not want to compromise on food quality. It is also a phantastic remedy if you need a pick me up or when you feel a cold is coming. Just add leftovers to a cup, a bag of green tea – and pour over hot water. Done. In this recipe, I use salmon, rice and scallions but use whatever you have available.
Fight a cold. Or just prep the easiest work lunch ever. Sounds crazy? Not so much ... this recipe is a variation of Ochazuke, which is a traditional Japanese dish eaten as a morning meal. Ochazuke means “soaked in tea” and makes for a wonderful, soothing dish. And it's perfect to prevent food waste by using leftovers in a delicious way.
Yep, it's that easy.
