It's that time of year when new rice is being released across the country. It is unique to Japan that we can feel the change of the seasons on our dining tables. In the harvest season, we want to taste the seasonal ingredients, don't we?
This time, I would like to introduce two kinds of rice dishes that you would like to eat with boiled rice. Sweet and sour miso peas have an appealing aroma of peanuts. Negi Furikake is also addictive. Be careful not to eat too much, as both of these rice dishes are very filling.
