Ochazuke, rice with tea.

Ochazuke is a simple food that is made from pouring tea with rice and toppings. This time I made it with grilled salmon and mitsuba, a kind of herb and boiled water instead of tea. Sounds difficult to make it by yourself ? Not really. Ochazuke is a simple dish as I said, so you just put what you have in your refrigerator when you want to eat it. Fish, seaweed, natto, whatever.
Actually, it was first born as a fast food. You just mixed rice and tea when you don't have time for preparing food. Since rice is a staple food in my country and all of us drink tea, we all could make it whenever we want. I myself don't eat it very much because I rather eat bread, but it is another traditional fast food in Japan.
