Bamboo Rice is a short grain white rice which has beensoaked in bamboo juice.
It has a mild bamboo flavor. I use it because it is visually appealing.
|The first time I used bamboo rice I rinsed it |
which washed a lot of the bamboo juice away...
|Bamboo rice makes great sushi rice|
|Cut the tofu into small slabs, fry, soak in a |
sugar and rice vinegar mixture overnight, then cut in half
|Add some of the rice vinegar marinade drained |
from the tofu to the bamboo rice.
Cut out a pocket in the tofu.
Stuff the pocket with seasoned bamboo rice
This visual appeal of this dish will sell itself.
