Rice of the Day -- Green Tea Bamboo Rice
1 lb. Bamboo Rice (about 3 "cups")
Pot of cooled Green Tea (strong brew)
pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon powdered Ginger
1/2 cup Golden Raisins
1/2 cup Sliced Almonds
2 tbsp butter
1/2 cup honey
Rinse Bamboo Rice about 3 times or until no longer cloudy. Place in cooker. Fill to a little beyond the 3 cup mark for White rice with the Green Tea. Stir in salt and ginger. Set rice cooker on white rice.
When the cooker has just a few minutes to go, melt butter in non-stick frying pan. Toast almonds until nice and golden brown and remove from heat. Stir in the raisins and honey. When cooker is finished, stir this mixture into the rice and let sit on the "keep warm" setting for 10 minutes.
When serving, you may want to add more honey.
Very good -- 5 stars.
