Lazy Mommy's Dinner - Ochazuke
After the previous post of me being lazy about cooking dinner, here's another post to further show my laziness. ^^!
It's been some time since we last eat these, but this is what I used to resort to when neither myself nor the boys want to eat anything much but we want something hot & soupy. This is completely easy to make. I don't think I can even call it cooking! LOL
It's ochazuke - "ocha/cha" means tea and "zuke/tsuke" means submerge. Basically you have a dish of tea poured over rice.
You can use the furikake I mentioned in my previous post for the topping and then, you pour either hot tea/hot water or dashi (stock) over your bowl of rice. There are of course plenty of ready-made ochazuke packets sold at the Japanese section in supermarkets available. Yes, you can find it in Jusco and Carrefour too! :-)
Ochazuke taking simply with rice can be rather bland for me and when I needed something spicy to accompany my ochazuke, I'd add kimchi! Yummy, I tell you.
